IFA #55: Creative Ways to Produce Indie Features with Jenna Edwards

Home / blog / IFA #55: Creative Ways to Produce Indie Features with Jenna Edwards

About 3 years ago, while I was in the middle of trying to produce my first feature, I started listening to a podcast called Film Method. Hosted by Cindy Freeman and Jenna Edwards, I was blown away at the format of the show. The show focused on aspects of filmmaking you don’t often hear about, like the legal advice or working with a sound designer. Unfortunately, they stopped doing the show a number of years ago. But years later, when I decided to do my own podcast, I took Film Method as the model with the goal of helping other filmmakers as much as they had helped me.

With that being said, it’s my pleasure to welcome Jenna Edwards to the show. Jenna really knows her stuff when it comes to producing independent features. As she discusses in this episode, one of the key things for producers to understand is that you have to be creative about everything from funding to shooting to marketing & distribution.

Jenna offers programs to teach producing at her website. www.indiemoviemastery.com or she can also be contacted regarding producing/consulting for independent features on www.jennaedwardsmedia.com.
