So, you think filmmaking is easy?

Only if you're clowning around.

Yeah, the lead-in is a bad pun for a link to a great log about how hard it is to complete a feature film and get distribution. Kangas Kahn Films, owned and operated by a friend of mine, has had some success making features. Kangas is most known for the Fear of Clowns films (see... bad pun). The first one was distributed by Lions Gate, and he's working on a deal for the second.

The logs really drive home how hard it is to make a feature-length film without studio backing. I've been reading for a while, and I can soooo relate to a lot of what he says. Sometimes I just laugh hysterically, and sometimes want to strangle the nimrod(s) doing to him what I've had done to me.

If you're interested in making your own movie, read these blogs. If you still want to make a movie, you're one of us, and have some sort of mental defect -- like all us low-budget filmmakers. :lol:

  1. Thanks for spreading the word! Now get back to work on Crawler! :)

  2. It's tough! But stay with it. I'm in the same boat at the minute (mental defect in tow) and trying to keep the faith. I'm very much looking forward to reading Kangas' blog.

    I want to see Crawler! I don't know what it's about, first time to this site, but with a name like Crawler it has to be good! Going digging now to find out more!

  3. Kangas's posts are both inspirational and depressing. In other words: awesome!
