Misadventures in Independent Filmmaking & Distribution with Anderson Cowan

Today on the show we have filmmaker Anderson Cowen. Anderson and I met through a mutual friend in Los Angeles. When I first met Anderson he was a deer in the headlights when it came to selling an indie film into the marketplace. His film is called Groupers. It’s about a grad student kidnaps two homophobic high-school bullies to use as her subjects in an experiment performed at the bottom of an empty swimming pool.

Needless to say, Anderson went on an adventure getting this film into the marketplace. I wanted to share his journey with the tribe and I hope you grab some lessons of want to do and more importantly what NOT to do when making and selling a film.

Enjoy my conversation with Anderson Cowen.
