It’s begun~~~ officially xD
and look! Another banner~~~ LOL
I generally like the Indie Spirits marketing. It’s a little more loose, but also generally more fun than the Golden Globes or the Oscar. And it’s certainly better than most Critics Choices…
This year’s nominations… don’t surprise much, actually. It seems those most nominated have been “big” independent films. You know, we’ve talked about this already — American independent films: There are different types of indie films~~~ The pseudo-indie, known in Hollywood as indie because they “only” cost $1M, there’s the more regular indie that could cost between a few thousand dollars, then there’s indie-indie of a couple of thousand dollars, and hardcore indie which… is, just really hardcore.
This year’s Indies seem more like pseudo-indie. Sadly… and at the same time exciting.
I hope we get good screeners. =D Last year we got a few good ones. The most elaborate one that time was Precious. Don’t worry, I didn’t vote because of the packaging.
I think it should be required for First Features, foreign, docus and the John Cassavetes noms to send screeners, or allow screeners to be sent. But maybe that’s just me.
Anyway~~~ here are the nominees~~~
