Howdy, everybody. Ian Carruthers here. Welcome to my new project, Meeting the Resistance!

Here’s the story:

I’m a writer and filmmaker. Recently, in my “day job” as a videographer, I kinda screwed the pooch. Made some simple, stupid mistakes. Not fun, as you might imagine.

But it gave me something. I had the opportunity to step back, and see whether or not I was on the right path.

Filmmaker? Yep, right path.

Writer? Yep, right path.

Videographer? Yep, still the right path.

But I wasn’t focused enough, I wasn’t on top of my game.

And what will get me on top of my game? To quote Limelight, from the band Rush, I need to “put aside the alienation and get on with the fascination.” It’s time to overcome my own resistance.

Then, my short film, Loaded Paradise, got into a film festival in Montana, as part of a Science Fiction/Fantasy convention called MisCon. (I also have family in town I never get to see – twofer!) I’ve been asked to speak on panels, and present my film not once, but twice.

And the theme of this conference? “The Resistance.”

So I decided to make a movie about my travels to, and experiences at this convention, and about my own travels and experiences as I “put aside the alienation, and get on with the fascination.” I’ll be posting pics, written blogs, and video blogs here.

Welcome to my journey. Welcome to Meeting the Resistance!
