If it weren't for independent musicians and indie bands, I wouldn't have been able to figure out how to go about things when it comes to what I do as an indie filmmaker. They're the ones who paved the way. Small budgets to get things done, no arena-size seating but $ and seating nonetheless.
People have assumed that other indie directors pointed the way towards how I'd be doing things but, actually, it has to do with observing the operational tactics of indie bands more than anything else.
I owe everything to the musicians. They chopped through the wilderness and made the path.
