Since the early 1900s aspiring American filmmakers and journalists have flocked to the coasts to join the studios and multinational corporations that funded, produced and distributed films and documentaries. This is no longer necessary.Recent changes in production make it cheaper than ever to create commercial quality content anywhere. Cameras like the Red and Canon 7D produce HD let filmmakers compete with the studios.New distribution options make it possible for even small independent producers to make a profit on their content. Hulu, Netflix, Red Box and Amazon are all actively seeking new content and new voices to draw audiences.New film credits available in each state, and new funding options like Kickstarter and the significant loosening of regulation in the Jobs Act just signed by the president mean that support for filmmakers has never been more abundant.
