PODCAST: From Crowdfunding a Teaser To Selling Out Theatrical Screenings With Co-Directors John C. Lyons and Dorota Swies

Joining me for this episode are co-directors John C. Lyons and Dorota Swies, here to talk all about their brand new feature film Unearth.

Unearth is a “fracking horror film” that was produced over the course of 8 years. What began as a successful crowdfunding campaign for a teaser, ultimately helped secure financing of nearly $1,000,000 for the full feature film. From there, the project attracted some known cast (Adrienne Barbeau and Marc Blucas), and landed distribution after premiering at the Fantasia film festival. It became the first feature film to sell out a theatrical show the Laemmle theaters in LA (post-pandemic), and is now widely available on DVD, VOD and other platforms. Hear about the entire journey from concept to distribution on this week’s episode.
