My Doctor Who book

I had a nice little surprise in the mail today at the office - copies of the book I edited, Ruminations, Peregrinations, and Regenerations: A Critical Approach to Doctor Who.

I pause briefly here to ponder my obsession with long and unwieldy titles. Between this book, and my film, The Proper Care & Feeding of an American Messiah, it's becoming apparent that I have a thing for them. To be honest, I felt certain the publisher would demand a title change on the book. I'm shocked that they didn't, so now I'm stuck with that crazy title...

Anyway, there are very few things as satisfying as receiving the hard copies of such an endeavor. Seeing the book in print, putting it on the shelf - these are things that make the work seem like it was worth it. The cover looks great, especially now that I am seeing it as something more than a digital file on my computer screen!

Interview on DIY/Indie Filmmaking

Film and media blogger Chuck Tryon, who teaches at Fayetteville State University in North Carolina, interviewed me recently for his blog and as part of the process of gathering information and content for his new book.

The subject matter is the business side of indie/DIY filmmaking, specifically with regard to distribution issues and the impact of online models of distribution on filmmakers like me.

You can read part one of the interview here. I'll update with a link to part two when he posts it.

Update: Part two is now posted. Read it here.
