Unrelated Indie Notes

Via Chris of Left Center Left: Paul Harrill’s Self-Reliant Filmmaking, a blog that focuses on do-it-yourself filmmaking, a topic I’ve discussed from time to time. Paul’s most recent entry focuses on questions about DIY filmmakers building their own equipment, noting both the strengths and weaknesses of homemade equipment. As regular readers of my blog have probably noticed, I’m very much interested in theorizing independent cinema, specifically the DIY model.

But I also wanted to mention that Paul’s blog led me back to Hal Hartley’s homepage where I learned that Hartley is working on a follow-up (IMDB) to one of the more underrated indie films of the last decade, Henry Fool. The follow-up, Fay Grim, sounds promising and certainly timely.
