Director Ben Rock is a great guy, and a talented Director/Filmmaker. His short film "Future Boyfriend" is in The screening Room. Check out this interview with Ben. I had a great time, and you will enjoy it as well.
There is a time to buy, and there is a time to DIY. A few years ago it really made more sense to make as much as you can yourself. Now there are companies that offer decent products at a more affordable rate. Sometimes it may make sense just to buy something and other times you just gotta DIY.
"FUTURE BOYFRIEND" directed by Ben Rock is a really cool Sci-Fi short film with a great story. Shot in one location, this film tells a very good story in a cool and interesting way.
Music is a part of our film that we just simply cannot forget about. Many first time indie filmmakers sometimes tend to either forget about, or just not give much attention to. This is as crucial as any other part of filmmaking.
"THE ISLE" film's Matthew and Tori Butler - Hart talk about their film, filmmaking, and their production company "FIZZ & GINGER FILMS". Fizz & Ginger films has an exciting slate of films. We also talk about what is was like to film on this historic island.
Jenifer Westphal and Joe Plummer created Wavelength productions, a company that 90% helmed by women. Wavelength Productions fosters the female talent in all aspects of filmmaking. They focus on films with really great stories. Some of their films include "Where's my Roy Cohn?", "Selah and The Spades", and "Knock down the House" which can be seen on Netflix.
Director Dave Bundtzen and Actress Colleen Kelly of "Devil's Passenger" and "Window Dressing" chat with me about both films. Listen to the conversation here.
"WINDOW DRESSING" by Dave Bundtzen is another short film that utilizes minimalism very efficiently. Let's take a look at how Dave does this in his latest short film.
"THE LAST WHISTLE" is a film about football, and the human spirit. Director Rob Smat talks about the film, as well as the making of it
Writing and shooting for what you have allows us the freedom of creativity. Being creative with minimal resources stirs up the raw creativity to make something work. It forces us to creatively make the best from what little we have. This creativity is what makes magic. #IndieFilmPlace
