Since more moviegoers and filmmakers are turning their attention to Las Vegas with the passing of the Nevada Film Tax Incentive I thought it would be a good time to update the Indie Film People Worth Following on Twitter List that was originally published in December 2012. Below I have posted both real and Twitter user names along with brief descriptions of people who are currently some of the "ones to watch" in order to keep an eye on the Indie Film World in Las Vegas. While I have tried to add some new additions to the list, I have also kept some of the ones from before on it who are still quite active and worth following if you aren't already.
