Blue Seraph Producer Interviewed by Filmmaking Blog
Judas Kiss writer-producer Carlos Pedraza was interviewed on the Inside Out, Outside In filmmaking blog about how to successfully raise money to produce and successfully distribute an independent film.
The interview, by filmmaker Hunter Lee Hughes of Fatelink Productions, features tips from the award-winning Blue Seraph writer and producer about how to:
- Produce an independent film.
- Find investors.
- Effectively use social media.
- Create an effective business plan for earning back your investment.
- Reconcile the roles of producer and writer on the same project.
One of the benefits of getting into film festivals is meeting other indie filmmakers that inspire you as you slog from program to program, with a few well-earned pit stops at local bars and coffee shops. Carlos Pedraza and I met in just such a fashion [last year]. His friendship proved one of the most valuable rewards of the film festival experience.
Carlos is a thoughtful writer and methodical producer. He’s been generous enough to share some of his producing tips with me privately and, now, is elaborating on his experiences for our blog readers.
The interview also describes how Pedraza and director J.T. Tepnapa cast up-and-coming young actor Richard Harmon in the starring role as Danny Reyes, as well as their two new features in development, Something Like Summer and The Dark Place.
Hughes is the writer-producer of the award-winning short film, Winner Takes All, and the upcoming Web series, Dumbass Filmmakers.
His blog is his effort to chart his experience in producing his own micro-budget feature and creating a successful template for others to use as a guide.
