My future with filmmaking?

With everything changing with YouTube with the ad revenue being limited and can’t add a link Patreon in your videos unless you have over 10K subscribers.  I only started Out of the Box back in January 2017 and I haven’t made one penny from YouTube or Patreon and only have 7 subscribers.  I am thinking of moving any new endeavors to another platform like Vimeo.com.  When I started doing The Radical Geek I looked into hosting my videos there but went with another platform.  I have been working on some screenplays for a sci-fi/fantasy anthology series like The Twilight Zone or Amazing Stories.  If I do change hosts I think Vimeo might be better because it is more focused on the filmmaker community.  Also, they have some groups that focus on sci-fi.

Filmmaker Dreams

For some of you that follow this blog, you see the videos I make.  The videos started because I am a fan of podcasts and wanted to be part of it so I made the Radical Geek in 2011.  After that, I have a current project called Out of the Box where I unbox and review gadgets.  Over time I have been studying on how to be a better film/video maker.  I want to branch out into more and different projects.

My first idea for a full feature length film had a working title, “Do You Copy.”  It was going to be a documentary on Digital Right Management (DRM for short) and the fight between the creator’s right to profit from their work and the consumer’s right to have a quality project or share it.

I also love sci-fi/fantasy and just wrote a script for a short sci-fi film called In Two Days…?  It is about 2 scientists that create a device that views events in time using the theory of an Einstien-Rosen Bridge.  Only thing is that they can only see two days ahead.  The rest of the film is them finding out why.

I do want to make a film but here are the excuses.  It is time and money.  I don’t have the money to put into the project.  So I can try to crowdsource it with Kickstarter, IndieGoGo or GoFundMe.  Time is a problem because either I have a regular job or looking for a new one when unemployed.

If you think I might make a film even a short film you have to wait and find out.

Ganymede Awards

I proposed a film festival with an award in genre and fan films for Flower City Comic Con 2018.  I am still waiting for a response from the organizers to get the okay.  I hope I get a chance to do it, but if I don’t get it should I have it at a neighboring hotel after the convention closes for the night?

Geek Code is obsolete?

Back in the 90’s when the Internet was the playground for nerds in college they created the Geek Code to show off our geekiness.  It increadiblely out of date especially with DOOM!, Star Trek, Babylon 5, Usenet, Kibo, and Dilbert.  It really needs to be updated.  USENET can be replaced with Reddit and Dilbert can be changed with web comics.  That should be updated for the times.  Well below is my geek code.  Click here to decode.

Out of the Box coming soon

I want to give you an update on the new web show I am putting out called out of the box.  I have 2 episodes ready instead of 1.  The reason I have 2 is because to there was some old footage I had saved for what I shot last summer.  Hope to have them up soon.

New Web Show

I have been looking to get back into making videos.  The new show is called Out of the Box.  I am going to be doing unboxing videos on gadgets and review them.
