This Week’s Must Read is Wired4Film’s interview with an ol’ Underground Film Journal fave: Chris Hansen, who has just wrapped up his 3rd feature film, Where We Started. The chat gets into detail on the challenges of filming a heavy dialogue indie film with just two actors that takes place mostly at night using a mostly student crew. Plus, there’s talk of the Christian themes that run through Hansen’s films, but don’t bonk you over the head, even considering he made a film with the word “Messiah” in the title.
Another interview that’s not really film related, but I dig donna k.’s chats with artists, is her talk with sculptor Karyn Olivier. The photos of Olivier are also really worth clicking over for.
This isn’t really film based, but Get Rich Slowly has good suggestions on how to run a successful Kickstarter campaign. I’ll just add my own brief tip: Be super aggressive! One Facebook status update per week isn’t going to draw in the screaming hordes.
