Filmmaker Linas Phillips on Film Courage (Ep. #141)
Filmmaker Linas Phillips (Walking to Wernver, Bass Ackwards) 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.

What happens to the projects that fail to reach their Kickstarter goal?
One of those projects had a cast that included Emmy-winner Marcia Wallace from “The Simpsons,” Tony-winner Rae Allen who was on “The Sopranos,” Chris Mulkey currently on “Boardwalk Empire,” Retta from “Parks and Recreation” and Kirsten Vangsness who plays Penelope Garcia on “Criminal Minds.”
After losing it all on Kickstarter, Vampire Mob raised over $10,000 through their web site and completed season two, which you can see free and commercial-free at VampireMob.com
