Independent Filmmaker Tom Durham recently sat down with the folks over at Red Giant and gave some very great advice on filming your very own independent movie. Tom has spent the last several years creating his newest independent movie, 95ers: Echoes and has endured both the highs and lows of independent filmmaking. Why not learn from his mistakes and successes? His biggest piece of advice when making your own independent movie... 'Whatever you do, don't go into debt!'
Tom explains how he transitioned from idea to distribution which can turn out to be a long, drawn out process that also turned out pretty costly. Going into debt can really be a drag on the whole filmmaking experience. He explains how using services like Kickstarter can really help preventing yourself from a ton of stress and also helps connect with your audience. He also goes over some experiences he had working with visual effects and the importance of planning.
