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!
What Happens After You Win the SXSW Film Festival?
Have you always wonder what happens to indie filmmakers who win HUGE film festivals like the SXSW Film Festival? Well, wonder no more.
I’ve invited one of my oldest friends onto the show, Brant Sersen, the writer, and director of the SXSW Audience Award-winning film “Blackballed: The Bobby Dukes Story” starring Rob Corddry.
Over the years I’ve heard Brant tell me all sorts of stories about his misadventures in Hollywood. So if you are expecting an “Entourage” style story you’re on the wrong website.
What I try to do with Indie Film Hustle is to give you the no BS info, stories, and experiences you can only get by being in the heat of battle. Brant Sersen’s story is no different.
Brant shares his ups and down on the Hollywood roller coaster, what it takes to make it as a working filmmaker and shares behind the scenes stories of working with big name talent. Enjoy the podcast!
Here’s the trailer to Blackballed: The Bobby Dukes Story:
