IFA #19: Producers Brian Udovich & Justin Duprie


Today I’m talking with producers Briand Udovich and Justin Duprie of Rough and Tumble Films. We discuss the ways independent filmmakers working in the sub 1 million dollar range can compete with other larger budget films. Starting with his film All the Boys Love Mandy Lane , Udovich has had a track record of delivering high productoin value and star power at a fraction of the cost of independent films in the same league. His latest filme, Bad Turn Worse, stars Mackenzie Davis, Jeremy Allen White, and Mark Pelligrino.
