#149: I Talk Indie Film Production with UK-Based Fume Films

ben steiner and dan dixonIt has been a bit of a hiatus since our last episode while I take care of some health problems, but hopefully I can attack 2016 with regained vigor and enthusiasm. This will be the final episode of 2015, and what better way to endcap the year on a film festival podcast than with a conversation all about independent film production? Joining me for this conversation are Ben Steiner and Dan Dixon of the UK-based Fume Films, whose short film THE STOMACH took home an Horrible Imaginings trophy back in 2014.

Now, while we talk about independent filmmaking in some general terms that should interest anyone who wants to hear about the process, it will help if listeners have seen some of Fume Films' output in order to give this episode some more context. These are excellent and creatively original short films well worth your time. THE STOMACH is the film that took home our trophy for best Paranormal short film. You can watch it on iTunes for just a couple of bucks! Click the poster for a direct link to that download: stomach poster

We also discuss some of the poster work in the podcast. Here are some of the other posters to give that discussion some context: posters

#137: Dark Star: HR Giger's World

Hello everyone! Angela and I got the chance to see Dark Star: H.R. Giger's World last night on the exact one year anniversary of Giger's death. Let it be known that we were quite affected by the film. Listen to our reaction--and we do avoid anything that could be called spoilers, even though this is just a film portrait of a fascinating man. Please go and see the documentary if it is playing anywhere near you. I am listing some dates here: dark star poster
