Came across this interesting documentary in pre production which has some similar themes to The Art of Perseverance. being a digi-kid turned filmmaker, I hadn’t considered the re-training that traditional filmmakers have had to go through, creating a specific form of perseverance. Anyway, wish the creators good luck with this project – looks like they are embracing crowd-sourcing as part of the content creation. Hopefully if gives me some food for thought with the thesis.
IndieStardust is a documentary film about artists of all kinds in different mediums, and the effect of the indie and digital revolution on their ability to create their art and continue to make a living, compared to just a few short years ago.
The film depicts the journey that artists are taking whilst facing the extreme challenges brought on by the transformation of the new entertainment industry.
IndieStardust explores and explains this phenomenal new media revolution. As the technology expanded, it became the catalyst of the indie revolution. The beginning of the end!
The film focuses on musicians, actors, filmmakers, comedians and writers. As they learn to navigate the transition, view their successes and failures! The traditional creative art and entertainment business models have shifted and now “new platforms” take centre stage!
