For those who may have missed any, here is a quick rundown of blog posts discussing the many reasons behind why people make independent films. Written by me during the 2014 A-to-Z Challenge in April, some topics have brought a larger response than others. As I prepare to adjust the Monday Movie Meme schedule by turning it into a bi-weekly series (I apologize for any inconvenience that the skipping of a Movie Meme has caused earlier this week) and organize the upcoming continuation of my interview with L.A. based actress Nydia Simone, these #atozchallenge posts are an overview of what transpired during the biggest blog hop on the net.
To win Awards.
To be Brave.
Because we have to put Everything on the line.
For the Fame
Because we’re one of the Good Guys
Because we hope they help us live out fantasies of Hollywood
Because we’re already In too deep.
Because somebody’s got to do the Job
Because it’s how we learn the art of Killing our Babies.
For the Love
For the Money
To get Noticed.
For the Opportunity
For the Prestige
Because that’s how we find the answers to big questions.
Because they provide a Rush
For the Satisfaction
For that Theatrical Treatment
Because we Understand that the future is Up to Us
For the Validation
To create a brighter World
Sometimes we need to X out of it
Because it’s all about You
It’s just Zany
