About Smash or Trash Indie Filmmaking

Welcome to the Patreon page for Smash or Trash Independent Filmmaking! I'm Robert Long, an award-winning indie filmmaker. I've been in the business for years, working on professional independent movies from the East Coast to Hollywood, CA. During this time I have worn a lot of hats: producer, director, camera operator, editor, animator, screenwriter, actor, makeup, special effects, props, sets, key grip, and foley artist.
     The Smash or Trash Independent Film website has been going strong since March 1st of 2008. Since then hundreds on interviews, reviews and how-to articles have been published. Our staff has interviewed many of the DIY indie filmmaking heavy hitters including Don Dohler, David Howard Thornton, Kevin Kangas, Daniel Ross, George Stover, Leanna Chamish, Donald F. Glut, and Jenna Kanell - among countless others!
     We're looking to expand - by that I mean getting video content up as well as articles up once a week. These will also include making our own movies and restoration of movie techniques - projects YOU can help on and get credit for!
     It takes funds to keep the lights on here at the "studio" and we all work day jobs (as do most indie filmmakers). With this Patreon page we hope to raise funds so that we can get better equipment, as well as do updates (both blog and video) on a much more regular basis. Plus, this will help get some projects off the ground. This will create more how-to videos - AND those that contribute will be credited for helping these dreams come true!
     This Smash or Trash Patreon page will have the usual tier levels, so pick the one that fits you - like a hand in a glove. Rewards galore! So let's get creative, let's get passionate for all things indie filmmaking - and we thank you sincerely in advance.
