Filmmaking niche

It's been about two or two and a half years since I've become seriously involved in video.

In the last eighteen months, the idea of making a feature film on video has gone from unthinkable to possibly viable.

It used to be that when a feature was going to be shot on DV, it was the lead paragraph in the story. Now the fact that it is being done on DV is buried seven or eight paragraphs down in the story.

I have been watching lots of low budget, independent films shot on both film and DV. The range of quality varies between embarrasing crap to highly acceptable, commercial releases.

My question in all this is:

Is there a message board or a website that deals with the low end (economically and experience wise) of filmmaking? I am looking for people with little or no experience and little or no money who are trying to buck the odds and make a high quality feature film?

Just a quick search on 'Independent Film Makers' turned up, Independent Film Makers Guild, AIFFP, and a ton of other sites related to Indie film making. Most of them have members who are working with video to some extent.

I maintain contact with AIFFP & the IndiClub. Both are very active. There is certain to be at least one indie club or something like the non-profit Film Arts Foundation and Bay Area Video Coalition (San Francisco-based) groups in Detroit.
