NOAM KROLL, Micro budget filmmaking

The Art of Micro-Budget Filmmaking with Noam Kroll

Today on the show we have the writer, director, post guru, and podcaster Noam Kroll. Noam has directed a killer micro-budget feature film called Shadows on the Road. In this episode, we discuss how he shot this extreme micro-budget film and still made it look gorgeous. Noam also runs a great podcast and blog that helps indie filmmakers. You can find links to his sites below in the show notes. Here’s a bit about Shadows on the Road.

After potentially killing her attacker in the midst of a violent altercation, Zoe – a runaway youth – befriends Silver, a charming beach dweller, who offers to drive her to the Mexican border and help her make an escape. As their journey unfolds, the blossoming relationship between the two is threatened by Zoe’s dark past, which not only haunts her but puts both of their lives in jeopardy.

Here’s some more info on Noam Kroll:

Noam Kroll is an LA-based filmmaker here to share my thoughts, experience, and perspective on all things film with you. He has worked in the film and television industry in many different capacities over the years, but primarily as a director, cinematographer, and colorist. He got his start by writing and directing his own short film content which led him to work on music videos, advertising campaigns, and eventually feature film work.

Noam’s approach to filmmaking has always been quite hands on given my background in cinematography and post-production, which has led him to DP and edit many of his own projects. While he continually develops his own passion projects, Noam also spent much of his time assisting other filmmakers in the creation of their films. Through his production company, Creative Rebellion.  

Enjoy my conversation with Noam Kroll.
