It’s 2014.
It’s hard to come up with completely ‘new’ concepts anymore.
But, since it is 2014, if you aren’t making something cool or interesting, there’s a good chance that nobody is going to care.

Luckily for filmmakers, there’s Experimental Film, which means we can literally do whatever we want in front of a camera or with film in general and at least say we’re trying.

Buffalo is home to some of the most talented, creative and artistic individuals.

Does that statement come as a shock to you?

Let me ask you this;

  • Have you ever taken a drive around the Elmwood/Allen district and visited the many galleries literally walking distance apart?
  • Have you attended screening events for locally produced films or other video projects?
  • Have you ever visited some of the local musicians performing live at venues such as The Tralf, The Waiting Room or maybe even scoring an opening gig at The Town Ballroom?
  • Or let’s not forget about the on campus student art galleries at universities in Western New York, such as University at Buffalo, Canisius, or Buffalo State College.

Then why the shock?

The talent is here. The creativity is here. No doubt, the art is here.

But are the right spectators here?

In the last three years while being a student here in Buffalo I have witnessed and emerging interest from locals and students in the fashion world, it seems like Buffalo could be the next big Place of fashion.  With local designers, student groups, and regional organizations planning these massive fashion shows the demand for more is rising. Recently I’ve watched multiple fashion shows during this winters Fashion Week and got inspired to potentially bring on the action to Buffalo.

Snow Motion: Shooting Film in the Snow in Western NY snow-in-buffalo04-300x225

If you have ever been in Buffalo, New York between the months of November to March, you are aware of how long, cold and brutal a Western New York winter can get. Although the weather is unreliable, a frozen Buffalo make for an absolutely stunning setting for various projects.   From the frozen Lake Erie to Niagara Falls, the possibilities are endless, when it comes to shooting in the snow.

Do you think our wonderful winter scenery is worth freezing in the cold for filming? Click here to read more.

The Buffalo Central Train Terminal: What Side of the Tracks are you on? architecture

There is no denying that the Buffalo Central Train Terminal is one of the most fantastic, architectural structures in Buffalo, New York, but has tragically been abandoned for over 40 years. The Train Terminal has played a significant role in Buffalo film production and is still continuing to do so today, through local and even larger projects.   However, is this incredible building receiving the recognition it deserves, or are we letting a valuable piece of infrastructure go to waste?  Click here to read more.
