Filmmaker Christina Raia returns for our one year anniversary episode and the second half of our conversation about her new feature film About A Donkey. More specific discussion topics include the changing landscape of film funding in general and crowdfunding on Seed and Spark in particular, what it’s like when preproduction and crowdfunding campaigns overlap (spoiler:there’s not a lot of sleeping), working with donkeys, how both weddings and babies are like films, taxes taxes taxes, kicking off year five of the IndieWorks screening series, and the utility of writing groups. We also play a rousing round of “Best of the Best Trivia”, discuss recent favorite horror movies including Get Out and The Lure, and propose producing a horror anthology film together!
