So most of you know we enthusiastically support independent music but did you know we also have a toasty place in our hearts for independent film? The creators of outstanding flicks such as The Wrestler, Memento and 300: Rise of an Empire all started as indie filmmakers and shot to film awesomeness.

Why this homage to celluloid? (…and we use the term with reminiscence of course!)

This month, our CEO, Paul Wiltshire was invited to present to indie filmmakers at a spotlight event hosted by Independent Film Project, which makes perfect sense because we are after all, in the business of facilitating the perfect marriage between sound and vision.

Here we go with the month’s highlights.
