This edition of TCIBR is brought to you by IndieFlix and Breakthrough Distribution – Today we are joined by writer and director Steve Balderson. Often working from his home state of Kansas, Steve is a strong proponent of DIY filmmaking and the fact that movies can be made anywhere. He has written and directed narrative features (Pep Squad, Firecracker) and docs (Wamego: Making Movies Anywhere, Phone Sex). In our discussion, Steve explains the stripped down approach he took to the making of his latest doc Underbelly and how he’s building an audience for the film by focusing on the power of the niche.

  • This is a great list. But I'd add a number 11: Supporting the Local Community Radio Act.

    This is a bill gaining momentum that would put more local radio stations back on the airwaves, giving artists a way to turn people out to shows locally and gain fans again. Since the waves of consolidation that hit the radio industry in the 1990s, the dial sounds the same whether you are in Nashville or Seattle. And it's really hard for artists to get play on mainstream commercial radio. College and community radio stations have continued to serve as a haven for independent musicians. But these stations have been repeatedly limited due to pressure on Congress from commercial broadcasters.

    This could all change if the Local Community Radio Act is passed -- something that our friends at the Future of Music Coalition are great supporters of. You can find out more by checking out this video. (Full disclosure: I work for Free Press -- a non-profit, media reform organization that actively supports this bill. I'm also a musician).

  • I really appreciate artists who go the extra yard to specify which BUY button results in their biggest bang from my buck.
    All contracts are not created equal. Most are practically unreadable, but I actually love the ability to choose between legitimate methods of access, because it feels like a giant step toward conducting transparent commerce. It's not yet a common practice.
