The Irony (a salute)- By: Yury Delatorre

When was the last time you paid to see a movie? Honestly, the last time I paid to see a movie was… I can’t remember. Oh yea! “The Dark Knight”! The irony!
Let’s throw all our cards on the table. YES! The irony! I say this because I’m a filmmaker paying my dues, working hard, trying to keep up with school, projects (BLOGS! That reminds me I have to go to the graphic lab to catch up on my video graphics projects!). Technology has so many twists and turns. On one hand you can market & promote yourself at no cost, but on the other hand no one pays! “You feel me?” Everything is almost FREE! What do we get in return?
Once again it all comes down to passion. Yea, I know what you’re thinking, it sounds cheesy and all but it’s very true. For those about to shoot, I salute you!


  1. Yury, you're so right when it's your passion no matter what you do it. Having a passion means even you don't get paid you do it for the love of it. Artists do what they love because they love it getting paid or not.
