Self-Reliant Film began as a website devoted to DIY film-making in 2005.
Today, in addition to the blog, Self-Reliant Film is a banner under which Paul Harrill and Ashley Maynor produce and distribute films with compelling stories, a personal sensibility, and regional character.
Ashley was recently named the 2012-13 Sheila C. Johnson Creative Producing Fellow by the Sundance Institute!
We'll be announcing information about new films in Spring/Summer 2013--stay tuned!
