News Ticker


The Indieplex Online Magazine is an online community news source for and by independent artists, filmmakers and those of us who love and have an abiding interest in the movies, sound recordings, theater, film technology and the good things in life that come to us through art. Indieplex is dedicated to keeping the past in view and the present and future in perspective.

Indieplex Online Magazine publishes articles on a wide variety of subjects including the past, present and future of film, the filmmaking process, and the film business. Recent articles have focused on such diverse subjects as 3D movies, film preservation, recent losses to the film world, the film vs. digital discussions, and such niche subjects as “The Soundies,” from which modern music videos are descended. We also report on new production equipment and local events in the San Francisco Bay Area (where we are headquartered.)

The original peer-to-peer live events which took place in San Francisco, as imagined and organized by Ron Merk and Dan Gomes as The Filmmaker Resource Sharing Group has now been replaced by The Indieplex Online Magazine where much of its original functions, except for the social aspects continue. Ron Merk continues as The Editor-in-Chief. Dan continues as the technical consultant of the site. Leslie Levine is the webmaster and technical director.She will continue to improve the functionality and look of the site, adding new features from time to time that will increase the outreach and effectiveness of our mission.

The Indieplex Online Magazine is supported with generous grants from The Metro Theatre Center Foundation ( and Premiere Pictures International, Inc. ( and the many contributors of articles, technical information and illustrative material to the site.
