Yday’s panel at the Produced By Conference was, I hope, as informative for the filmmakers as it was fun for the participants. The focus was on adding actors to independent films, but the conversation included lots of things, and I spoke a bit about Slated soon to be in beta on its online marketplace for film finance. Judging by the reaction of filmmakers afterwards, finding a new potential source of capital for their films isn’t exactly the worst idea they’ve ever heard..
One tip for indie producers seeking talent (the industry’s kind term for actors) for their low-budget films: Consider offering the actors the types of roles they generally don’t get a chance to play. Just a thought.
The Hollywood Reporter piece on it is here.
