It 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 Film Festival 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 now watch “The Stomach” on the excellent horror streaming service Shudder!
We also discuss some of the poster work in the podcast. Here are some of the other posters to give that discussion some context:
