    Focus On Cinema: What Is A True Indie Film...

    in Movies

    With the amount of films being release every year, it's a wonder how the major studios can get it all done. Well a surprising number of the movies being made today aren't being made or distributed by the major studios at all. Independent films, also known by Indie films, are being produced and distributed at and incredible rate and are part of what's been fueling much of our movie entertainment for a number of years now. So our discussion this episode of A Reel Point Of View stems from these two questions: What is a true Indie Film, and how are Indie Films distributed on a shoe-string budget? To help us answer these questions and other those posed in our conversation, will be our guest from the newly launched film, arts and entertainment magazine "Quiet On The Set".

    Filmmaker Jade Justad discusses her film "Creased" - Co-hosted by Al Milbourne

    in Entertainment

    Jade Justad, regarding "Creased":

    CREASED is a very personal film for me and by far the most intimate subject matter I have ever approached as a filmmaker. My inspirations and cinematic references for this film include the aesthetics of the Instagram account of Brandy Melville, the obsessive teenage behavior in “The Bling Ring,” Julie Chen’s story on The Talk and just as importantly the reactions of her co-anchors to her surgery, the close-ups and sensuality of “Blue is the Warmest Color,” the Korean American woman who waxed my bikini line as she told me I had more beautiful eyes than her because I have a crease, the emotional and inventive cinematography of “True Detective,” that guy in college who loved Buddhism when he was sober and racist jokes when he was on the Jack Daniels, the long takes and character driven heart of the “Before Sunset” trilogy, the woman at the Clinique make-up counter that offered tips to open up and “westernize” my eyes when I was thirteen, the youthful humor, verve, and fraying friendships of “Y Tu Mama Tambien,” and that time when I was a teenager and I looked in the mirror and wished a white girl was looking back at me. This film is for that girl. And all the girls like her. ”

    J-Dub will bring us his musical guest, of course, and Mr. Hollywood Joel Casey will update us on what's going on in film industry.

    The multi-talented Al Milbourne will be co-hosting with me.  Al is an accomplished actor/filmmaker/author who wrote the amazing book "The Cancer Patient".
