We talk making a feature on an i-phone and turning a stage play into a feature. What compromises you have to make and how to self distribute your feature film.


How he made the films 'All God's Creatures' and 'What would Bear do?' and got an advance from sales and how he distributes his movies and give you advice on how you can produce your own movies.
