How about that? F*cking do it. Asterisk for the sake of not triggering any filters or blockers or whatever the kids call the buzz-killing censorship algorithms these days.
I digress. This week’s Coffee with Creatives episode is with the multi-talented Bodine Boling, whose film Movement + Location is currently in release in Los Angeles (after a week-long theatrical run in NYC) and available on several VOD channels.
We had a great talk about the travails of writing and producing a low-budget independent film. Subtopics included:
How varying production experiences can help improve your work in other areas
How/why she wrote the script for Movement + Location seventeen times before shooting it
The importance of having a reward you can envision at the end of a long-term pursuit
How to deal with a shoot location burning down
Working with your spouse
The sometimes harsh and insane financial reality of making art
Thanks for everyone who has “tuned in” to the Coffee with Creatives podcast so far. It’s been a lot of work putting episodes together but I’m having fun, the show seems to be growing, and I have some new bonus episodes and some exciting guests lined up for the coming weeks.
On a somewhat related note, I shot a quick video this morning with an important update:
Thanks for watching! Do you feel moved? If so, please head over here ASAP!
Coffee with Creatives is a bi-monthly podcast wherein I interview fellow creatives about their life and their work.
The goal is to engage in a personal, direct way, about practices, resources, and workflows that have helped them produce quality work (and to keep producing it). New episodes go live every other Thursday.
