    How To Raise $500K For Your First Indie Feature With Cody Stokes

    Many commercial directors want to make the leap to directing features films, but don’t know where to start. Our guest this week - Cody Stokes - successfully made that transition after raising just under $500K for his debut feature The Ghost Who Walks.
    Using the film as a case study, Cody walks us through every step in his process from building out the concept to fundraising to post-production and beyond. Cody’s story shows us that you don’t need industry connections or easy access to financing in order to make your movie a reality.

    Winning Sundance, Pitching Spielberg & Rediscovering Indie Filmmaking With Director Carter Smith

    Every filmmaker dreams of submitting their indie film to Sundance, winning the festival and landing a major directing gig. Our guest this week - Carter Smith - didn’t just dream of doing it, he pulled it off.
    After his short film Bugcrush (2006) won the Sundance film festival, he was given the opportunity to pitch on a major Hollywood feature called The Ruins. After getting the seal of approval from Steven Spielberg himself, Carter’s debut feature film was underway. Since then, he’s returned to his indie roots with the 2014 feature Jamie Marks is Dead, and most recently a Hulu/Blumhouse picture called Midnight Kiss (2019).
    Throughout the episode, we discuss Carter’s unique career trajectory, his experience in the studio system, why he’s revisiting independent productions, and so much more.
