DV Guru interviews director Sujewa Ekanayake
With Google promising to open its video platform to indie filmmakers, and the acquisition of YouTube, it would seem self-distribution of movies is on the rise. Digital distribution makes sense, and it is potentially a powerful tool for those without a huge budget to get their films to audiences. With this in mind, Brian Liolia of DV Guru recently interviewed Sujewa Ekanayake. His film, Date Number One, was made on a shoestring, and Ekanayake is a master of DIY filmmaking. Now, with digital tools at his disposal, he has entered the world of DIY distribution as well.
