On this week’s episode, I interview two amazing filmmakers – Hannah Black and Megan Petersen – who are in post-production for their $50K micro-budget feature Drought. Having never made a feature before, they were able to write an incredible script, raise $25K in crowdfunding through Seed & Spark, and an additional $25K through the Duplass Brothers who are Executive Producers on the project.
Over the course of the interview we cover their entire process from A to Z – From the development of their first screenplay draft to shooting the movie in 18 days, and pushing through post-production with their sights set on a festival run – Not letting anything stop them along the way, including a massive hurricane that hit in the middle of production!
