    Hey Zagz,
    Maybe a little off topic, however, I’m writing a novel where one of the characters is head of an independent film production house and movie director. Lighthouse Productions is a small production house with brilliant writers and story concepts, but their cinematology and dramatisation tends to miss the mark because of lack of funding. Its films are popular among alternative movie lovers around the country, but are relatively nameless in the mainstream crowd. Nancy just released Movie A earlier this week, and is currently planning Movie B. Both movies are deal with contemporary social injustice and what God has to do with it. Movie A drew a lot more attention than it intended because it’s controversial.

    Can you describe to me the typical pre-production and post-production stages of an independent movie? What should I mention in the novel, and what pitfalls must I avoid? Extra resources are more than welcome! Thanks.
    to your success!

    Hey Zagz,
    Thanks, on a related note, I live in the metro Atlanta area. I happen to know(after reading an independent news source) that the government in Georgia won’t fund MARTA. Because of this, MARTA only covers a small area compared to most mass transit systems in the USA. MARTA, if funded and expanded could solve the crowded freeway problem in Atlanta(ATL spends more money on its private vehicle commute than any other city in the USA) and the pollution problems in Atlanta, which have expanded to the suburbs. I live in the exurbs of metroAtlanta(Paulding County) and we get smog.
    Knowing all of this, why won’t the government fund mass transit? It tried to get the NASCAR Hall of Fame into Atlanta(it lost that bid to Charlotte,NC), why not some funding for MARTA? The city of Atlanta could sure use it when gas prices, commuting times, and pollution levels all go in one direction…up!
    All the Best
    to your success!
