Please note: Throwback Fridays are archival episodes from the Indie Film Hustle Podcast. After many requests from the IFH Tribe to bring back some of the show’s best episodes I decided to create Throwback Fridays. These episodes will not be posted every week but at least twice a month…if not more.
There’s so much amazing info and knowledge bombs in many of these past episodes and I don’t want them to be lost in the sea of IFH Content so I’ll be putting a spotlight on them in Throwback Fridays. Enjoy!
Horror Films: How to Make Your Indie Films Terrifying.
Making scary independent horror films in the current marketplace is rough. Today’s sophisticated audiences are getting harder and harder to scare every day.
When many filmmakers start out they make a film in the horror genre. It worked for famed filmmakers like Guillermo del Toro, Sam Raimi, George Romero, James Wan, John Carpenter, Wes Craven, Roman Polanski, David Cronenberg and Alfred Hitchcock just to name a few.
On this week’s episode, I’m joined by the aficionado of horror films Edwin Pagan from LatinHorror.com. We discuss what it takes to make terrifying horror films, the difference between Latino horror films versus Korean or American horror films and what is truly terrifying.
We also packed this scary episode with indie filmmaking tips on the do’s and do not’s of indie horror filmmaking, adventures of a working cinematographer in New York City and what it really takes to scare the hell out of your audience.
Don’t listen to episode alone. Happy Halloween and be safe everyone!
