I released "What is Indie? A look into the World of Independent Musicians" in 2006. This was before Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube were part of every musician’s life. Digital downloads were just taking hold, let alone streaming music services. But even though so much in the industry has changed in the past 10 years, the underlying spirit of the film remains as relevant as ever.
My distribution deal with the National Film Board of Canada expired this year. I’ve decided to release the digital version of the movie for free to anyone that is interested in watching a snapshot of the industry in 2004/05, from the perspective of independent musicians.
I hope you enjoy the film, and please feel free to reach out to let me know what you thought.
