Next Week: A Filmmaker's Dilemma

On Monday, Gloom to Boom will welcome its first guest blogger Betty Teng, a writer, filmmaker and film editor based in New York. Betty will share a fascinating story about how the credit crisis forced her to become more innovative in her approach to producing her film Maestro Maestro. Even though the recession has challenged the traditional model for making a film, it has forced open new doors for Betty to realize her vision. Here's an excerpt:

With systemic changes in the independent film market coupled with the current downturn in the global economy, viable funding and distribution models for films budgeted in the $2 to $5 million range are essentially extinct. While this has been a hard reality to face, I have been heartened to find, in the rubble of one plan, newer and fleeter possibilities for delivering Maestro to the world.

Please join us on Monday to learn about Betty's story. Hopefully it will inspire you to take a second look at your plans.
