Filmmaker Linas Phillips (Walking to Werner, Bass Ackwards, Manson Family Vacation) calls into Film Courage to tell us how working with special needs kids led to his filmmaking career, his advice to those who did not get into the 2012 Sundance Film Festival, whether or not he feels pressure as a Sundance alum, and whether he is focused on money or pursuing his dreams.
 
During this episode we were joined by Actress/Producer Elizabeth Karr, who helps us guest host this show with Linas.

WHERE SCREENPLAYS

GO TO GET BETTER



This past August, Larry McMurtry, author of Lonesome Dave, The Last Picture Show and Brokeback Mountain, sold over 300,000 antiquarian books from his legendary Booked Up bookshop at auction over two days. This film is the story of those Books.  Filmmakers Mathew Provost and Sara Ossana of Studio Seven7 Films have launched a Kickstarter Campaign to help them complete a documentary about McMurtry, the auction, and the future of the American book trade.

“I’m talking a lot of people of color who’ve never made a pledge on Kickstarter so I really think that it’s a fallacy, it’s a misconception and it’s just plain out wrong with a capital “W” that because someone puts $5 on my film, someone who backs my film with $5… that was $5 that a young filmmaker was going to get and that logic does not follow through.” says Spike Lee.
