NYC filmmaker Mateo Márquez joins us for episode 39 to talk about his films The Blood in our Veins and the upcoming The Invaders. Topics discussed include why and how he isolates his characters, the importance of Queens specifically and New York City in general to his work, festival strategy for short films, social media promotion techniques, and Mateo’s approach to crowdfunding (Including what he’s learned from past mistakes). Since we’re now knee deep into “pie season”, we play a round of–what else?–Pie Trivia.
