Episode 42 – The Indiana Filmmakers Network

On this week’s episode, we sit down with Chris Eller and Sean Connolly to discuss the new Bloomington chapter of the Indiana Filmmakers Network. Chris has been on the podcast several times before, but this is Sean’s first episode. Sean works with Chris on the 3D filmmaking class at IU, and also produces films.

In What Have You Seen Lately, Jason has seen a shockingly small number of movies, and Andy goes a bit overboard with three romantic comedies that he didn’t find romantic at all. Andy also re-watched 2001: A Space Odyssey, and starts to discuss the flaws before realizing that none of them matter because seriously, it’s 2001.

We also get into some zombie discussion as part of Chris’ section, and we spend some time discussing the recent Netflix price increase.

Finally, we discuss the Indiana Filmmakers Network, a meeting of people working in film in Indiana. The Bloomington chapter debuts with a meeting on July 26th in the Innovation Center on 10th St, room 105. We also discuss the challenges of working on film in Indiana, and how to increase engagement for productions happening in the area.

    First off “2001: A Space Odyssey”…..every frame is perfect.  It is not too long.  It doesn’t start off too slow.  The film depicts the evolution of consciousness…..perhaps the film’s enjoyment requires just that from the viewer.  Nuff said. 

    Second, I’m not super pissed off because Netflix raised their prices, but……………………………………………………………………………………………….if anyone thinks Netiflix wasn’t planning this all along….they would have to be completely naive, or have no business sense whatsoever.  Surprise, surprise….after Netflix (& Redbox, Dios Mio don’t get me started on Redbox…..nothing panders more to the brain-dead mainstream film-goer/pet rock than Redbox) almost single-handedly closed down every Blockbuster, Video World, every other regional video store chain, and mom and pop video/dvd business on earth, they are going to raise their prices…..what?  really?  ya think?  These MF-ers know they have created a ginormous monopoly……..they have practically no other competition left……….why wouldn’t they raise their prices?  Why wouldn’t they begin to bend every American who rents DVDs/Blu-Rays over a proverbial barrel, and screw their pocketbooks to oblivion…………….and call me crazy, but I’m pretty sure they’ll just keep raising their prices.  Why not? 
    Who’s going to stop them?  Who’s going to say, “Oh, wait, we have better/competitive prices for renting DVDs”.  Well, nobody………because thanks to everyone who stopped spending their money at the local mom & pop rental store……………there is nobody left to offer you a better deal.  Don’t get me wrong……I love Netflix……their instant selection has grown immensely, especially in the last year…….but now it is going to cost somewhere around $15.98 to both receive and stream movies.  Ok, ok, another $5 isn’t going to break the bank………………………… but multiply that $5 by every single American household……..that is a f–k ton of money.  Is Netflix hurting so badly that they need a f–k ton more money from all of our pockets?  Hell, no!  And once this goes into effect, and nobody makes too much of a stink about it…..”well, ok….take some more of my money, if you have to”……..then Netflix will just keep doing it. 
    So, on a positive note, go out and rent some DVDs from your local mom & pop store……they really need the money, unlike Netflix, and they probably know a little bit about film and can carry on an interesting conversation…….imagine that……face-to-face interaction in this day and age.  I’d recommend “Plan 9″, located right here in Bloomington, IN.  Great selection, great people. 

    Always loving the show, despite how grouchy I may sound!  Show is definitely getting better…….I haven’t heard “Top Gun” mentioned in at least 4-5 weeks!  Yipeeee!
