Film School - buckeye(156) I guess I should have posted this as one of my first blogs considering most people need to get a degree to start doing anything in the film industry.

RE: Nigeria's 2007 Election - daretaiwo(93) The Elections are few months away. But the Government has started playing dirty.

Why Great Things Are Happening. - TheOptimist(4,576) I truly believe that all the great things that have been happening in my life are a direct result of my " habit of action " .

Could we be seeing the last of blockbuster movies? - buckeye(156) I came accross an article that quoted a filmmaker foreseeing the end of the making of blockbuster movies. The Filmmaker?

Blogging in General - TheOptimist(4,576) Well it has been a while since my last post, so I thought I would get back to it... Blogging to me is a type of release. It is a way for me to keep motivated and stay focused on my goals. When I neglect my blog I feel like I am shunning a responsibility. Even if there were no readers (I've had...

Theatre isn't convenient - buckeye(156) In recent years the box office has been taking a hit. It seems that people are being more selective when it comes to watching a movie at the theatre.

DVD profits compared to Box office - buckeye(156) I want to stick with this ongoing theme on failures of blockbuster movies. Certainly there are many factors that attribute to this.

Are Big Screen TV's affecting Box office sales? - buckeye(156) To continue the theme on the failure of blockbusters I'm going to reach out on this blog.

Independence? - buckeye(156) I wanted to focus away from big business for once and dabble in the genre of indie films, otherwise known as independent films.

Rise of the Indie - buckeye(156) I found a great site that focuses on identifying what indie’s really are. There seems to be a certain stigma that derives from the word “indie”.

Youtube - buckeye(156) The introduction of Youtube has changed the film industry similar to what Napster did to the music industry.

Documentary - buckeye(156) Documentary films have become a common thing in theatres today. At least more so than in the past.

Documentaries like Roger and Me, Farenheit...

Mockumentary - buckeye(156) I wanted to blog about the use of mockumentaries since I’ve focused a little on the documentary genre. A mockumentary is a film presented like a documentary, but it isn’t based on facts. Most mockumentaries are used to portray a satire or comical parody. More recent examples of...
