My son laughs all the way through Commercial Kings
My son laughs all the way thru Commercial Kings with frequent pauses to gasp “I love this show!”
What? You don’t know this show? You should. It’s like Dirty Jobs meets Project Greenlight with funny. And, maybe a touch of Hoarders (but with love). What’s wonderful about the show is that it’s not really about making commercials, it’s about these great little vignettes of American small business owners … unique characters, original souls, and treated with such great respect by Rett and Link.
Must watch. I expect this to be on the air for a long time.

The ugly business details of crowdfunding
This is a great article on the legal / business concerns regarding crowdfunding.
I want to encourage all of you who are considering using crowdfunding to consult with a CPA who knows about these issues (if your CPA doesn’t even like Quickbooks, you will want to find someone more up-to-date) and, maybe, even a tax lawyer.
Why the big fuss? Because there are potentially a lot of tax issues connected with crowdfunding.
Worth checking out if crowdfunding is a part of your indie filmmaking business plan.
