THE BARE BONES INDIE AUTEUR
It is the only award of it's kind given anywhere in the world. It's a recognition of our cornerstone value,By any means necessary.
That doesn't mean by hook or by crook. Nor does it mean you give up your values of integrity, nobility and honor. Or set
aside the qualities of comraderie, compassion, kindness, self-control or goodness.
It means you are willing to, and have taken on any and every task that is necessary to complete your project.
It is great to have the budget for a full crew. But budgets alone don't guarantee the completion of a project or it's
quality. That takes, determination, commitment, drive and that little extra willpower that most people don't have. It is the
relentless drive that pushes past every obstacle, every challenge, every problem, every wrong turn, every disappointment,
every failure, every mistake and every nasayer that tells you to quit.
The INDIE AUTEUR AWARD recognizes that person of many hats that will not stop, until the job is done. That person who
sets a standard of stick-to-it-tiveness that we all admire, respect and revere. That something, that spurs on great explorers,
lonely scientists, insistent investigators, and every human endeavor someone has said was impossible.
For us, at BareBones, it is the ultimate honor that we can bestow on any filmmaker.
