Question by Josiah Kortje: What does Independent (Indie) Filmmaker mean?
Does this mean that I am like a cheap filmmaker or a DIY filmmaker?
Thank you everybody for your answers. This really helps me!
Answer by Alter Ego
An independent film maker is not associated with any of the major studios (Paramount, Sony, WB, etc.). Usually, independent film makers or studios pay for everything themselves, as opposed to say… like when a well-respected director gets hired to direct a film, the studio is going to pay for everything as an investment… and hopefully for them, the film will make more money than they invested.
