IFA #45: Jeremy Gardner & Christian Stella

Home / Cinematography / IFA #45: Jeremy Gardner & Christian Stella

Is it possible to build a career as a full-time filmmaker outside of the Hollywood System? That’s the goal of filmmaker Jeremy Gardener and cinematographer Christian Stella. In 2012, with just a few friends and $6,000, they made the surprise hit zombie film The Battery. In this episode I talk with Jeremy and Christian about the events leading up to The Battery, the chaotic process of filming, festival success,¬†distribution and the revolutionary way that the filmmakers are approaching distribution for their latest film, Tex Montana Will Survive.

Update: Watch the Entire Movie Right Here.

Watch The Battery Free (and legally) on Amazon Prime
