#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

Find out why the words, "Let's make a lesbian vampire movie" led to something totally unexpected. Find out why I desperately want my next car to be a Russian Volga! It's all in this episode of the Horrible Imaginings Podcast! 


Mauricio Chernovetzky, co-director of Styria aka Angels of Darkness, joins me to talk about his Horrible Imaginings alumnus film on the cusp of its release on the Showtime network on Sunday, March 1st!

If you are in San Diego, March is the month of the San Diego Latino Film Festival! Horrible Imaginings is involved in the programming of the UN MUNDO EXTRANO sidebar, as well as a short film block. Chernovetzky's newest short film DOS GATOS will be part of that block. I hope you will join me in welcoming the films at 22nd annual San Diego Latino Film Festival!
