DCC058 – That Jump off the Diving Board (feat. Joel McCarthy)

Published by:


“Get famous or die trying.” – Joel McCarthy Just wanted to make a film that he thought was funny. However the subject matter was a little out there so he decided that if its going to be unbelievably bad or horrible… as long as one character calls him out its ok to do the worst thing possible. In this episode we’ll follow the journey that Joel took from the inception of a short film into the execution and completion of a feature length project, all completed for an ultra low budget.

In the wrap up at the end of the show Alex goes into an explanation of how a theatrical DCP works and why you need them.
