IFH 248: Bomb City – Tapping into Your Audience with Major Dodge

MAJOR DODGE, BOMB CITY

Bomb City: Tapping into Your Audience with Major Dodge

Today’s guest is producer Major Dodge. His new film Bomb City is quite frankly…da bomb (sorry I couldn’t help myself). Here’s some info on his film.

Bomb City is a crime-drama, about the cultural aversion of a group of punk rockers in a conservative Texas town. Their ongoing battle with a rival, more-affluent clique leads to a controversial hate crime that questions the morality of American justice. Based on the true story of Brian Deneke. Directed by Jameson Brooks.

I wanted Major Dodge on the show so he can share with the IFH Tribe how he raised the money, got the rights to the story, got a theatrical release, tapped into his key audience and created merch to sell to that audience. Bomb City is a great case study.

Enjoy my conversation with Major Dodge.
