Tyler @ marialokken.com - I'm a Filmmaker With Karate Chop Action... Redux

by Tyler Weaver.  Follow me on Twitter.

Usually, I'd take this spot with one of my own articles, but today's going to be different in MH-land.  Last week I penned an article for television producer Maria Lokken's website, marialokken.com called "A Film in the Life of a Multi-Hyphenate Guppy," and Maria was kind enough to ask me to return this week.

So I did, with "I'm a Filmmaker with Karate Chop Action... Redux," my first remake, of my own article here at MH (from September), "I'm a Filmmaker with Karate Chop Action."  I took the opportunity to revisit the article, expand it, and fix some spots I screwed up the first time 'round.

When Maria and I discussed me writing another article for this wonderful site, I brought up the idea that she was more than welcome to take any article I had written and republish it on her site.  I put forth the article, I’M A FILMMAKER WITH KARATE CHOP ACTION, which I figured would be a good one, extolling my belief that the filmmaker is the product – and the films they create are parts of that product.

Looking back on the article, I realized I wanted to change some things, and alter a few ideas according to my development in the past six months.  And here we are…"
