#23 I’ve Got a Movie to Make: Some Words of Wisdom, Not From Me (Week 23 of 116)

This week I recount a twitter thread from a successful filmmaker. Christopher McQuarrie posted 25 tweets on October 23rd of this year, including many words of wisdom and points to think about, no matter what creative field you’re trying to make a living in. His feed and this thread have since been removed from twitter for reasons unknown to me, so I wanted to share it with you directly. I’d like to thank Superfan Giovanni for bringing this to me not once, but twice.
I also give a brief update on the latest with the Groupers release.

Week 23: Duration 0:33:20

#22 I’ve Got a Movie to Make: Aggregators & The Amazon Release Process (Week 22 of 116)

I talk a lot about aggregators, what they are and what they do and how I avoided the biggest aggregator meltdown the industry has ever seen. Amazon’s questionable release process is also talked about with some news there. What I didn’t mention is this, the president of my Distribution Company was at the forefront of the aggregator meltdown and he did a very candid interview with Alex Ferrari on Indie Film Hustle. If you’d like to know more you can hear that episode here.

#18 I’ve Got a Movie to Make: A Chat with a Critic, Spoilers Galore (Week 18 of 116)

***Warning, I’ve been advised to let you all know that there is some stuff given away in this episode, stuff that you may not want to know before seeing it. There are a number of “discoveries” that I wrote into the script and honestly it’s hard to talk about this movie withot exposing at least some of them, but a big one that happens in the first act of the movie is included in this interview.
This week I get my wish and have a nice conversation with a critic who was not too nice about the movie… to be fair he was fair in his review, unlike some others. Stuart D. Monroe is many things, an author and a critic are just a few. His work can be found on horrordna.com and getonmydamnlevel.com and on his social media pages which are:
By no means is this an invitation to harass Stuart, I liked him quite a bit and am very glad he agreed to do this with me. Sorry the audio is subpar, I screwed things up, much like the the writing of my movie, right Stu! I kid. Happy listening.
