The Producer Bootcamp podcast lifts the veil and questions the film industry at its core. Here, we no longer accept what we’ve been told to accept. We don’t believe in the notion of art vs. commerce. We believe art is commerce.
Nancy is awesome. She knows her shit when it comes to distro and marketing for films. She isn’t shying away from what isn’t working and how film makers need to be readjusting their whole idea of how they see film marketing if they want their film to be successful. We speak the same language.
Paul Jun is the co-founder and creator of a new video steaming platform incentivizing audiences to rate and review films by “gameifying” their experience. Paul is awesome. We talk about a lot in the world of film making and distribution. Enjoy.
Jason Charnick is not only a very knowledgeable filmmaker but also a great guy. He gives tons of awesome information to any new producers out there looking to make their first film, especially on a tight budget. We discuss mostly post-production and deliverables but make sure you don’t wait until you’ve finished your film to listen to the episode. Also, check out his documentary film from SXSW “Getting Over”.
I sit down with my dear friend and fellow producer Deborah Smith to discuss the emotional and mental health struggles that come with producing and filmmaking. It can get lonely and depressing making a movie or helming a project. Let’s talk about it.
The more we can accept that making a movie is difficult REGARDLESS of if we DIY it or go with a distribution company, the less blind we will be to the inevitable work that lies ahead of us. Make it fun by diving into the work with good, creative, hardworking people.
