Logan Garrity is the cowriter and director of Pool Party '15, which was released early last year.
Making a movie is no small feat; I would imagine all of us have, at some point, imagined writing/directing/shooting/producing/releasing a movie. Logan and I talk about what it takes to actually bring a film to life, and what it can cost. In the end, we are all of us creators, big and small, and every great project begins with little more than an idea, a dream. Enjoy!
