DCC042 – We Make Movies (feat. Sam Mestman)


Have you ever tried to get your movie made? You aren’t alone. Sam Mestman from We Make Movies, the LA based filmmakers collective explains what he sees as the current landscape of the indy film world. We discuss everything from huge overviews of the industry all the way down to how to allocate and distribute your funds to ensure the best chance of making your indy project a success. Using their techniques, We Make Movies has seen 50 feature length films be made thru their collaborative workgroup over the past five years. We also discuss the book “Think Outside the Box Office” by John Reese.
