Hello loyal followers,

Just to bring you up to speed, No Budget Cinema is not dead. I have been looking at project ideas, developing one, considering others. I had some other business to attend to with my publishing company and writing projects and those have been going strong. I wrote and published five books in six months last year and they are some of my best works, both fiction and non. I'm also bringing my Lost Continent Library Magazine back for another go at it and that is coming along very nicely. So...with my son in Wisconsin directing his first feature film, naturally my mind and heart return to film!

The film I'm thinking about is not Kaleidoscope Grimoire, as that will require the biggest budget I've worked with yet at a minimum of $5,000. What I have in mind will be another B&W period piece. Things are brewing in the creative aspects of this project so when the time is right, and all goes well, I'll make more posts here about it. I have some considerations to make as regards my general situation because commitment to a film goes much more smoothly with a steady foundation under one's feet. The good thing is that I do not intend for this film to take six months to produce as did Hell's Bells. I will allow myself half that time, one third the cast (if that), and even less money. Anyway, it will benefit from everything I learned on Hell's Bells.

I look forward to 2015 being a good year to return to your 'screens'.
