So you’ve got a script and all you need is the money to shoot it. Great! But where do you start? This week, producer Yumee Jang sits down to answer all our questions about where independent financing comes from including how to find and talk to investors.
Documentarian Scott Kirschenbaum joins us this week to talk about his life as a documentary filmmaker, how he goes about finding stories that will change his life and how he captured a woman giving brith in his newest film ‘Of Woman Born’.
Producer/Director Rick Bosner joins us to discuss how he’s making a living through filmmaking alone, including work as a line producer on Fruitvale Station and Executive Producer on Other People. And of course we ask Rick how filmmakers like us can get a producer like him on their project.
This week we have filmmaker extraordinaire Rob Richert on the show to give us a nice overview of his career on his filmmaker, covering film festivals, directing philosophies and being ready to pivot your story based on casting. We also talk about being at the San Francisco Film Society Film House residency program and the benefit of having that kind of community and mentorship available to you.
