One of my favorite things about the convention circuit is participating in panels. I enjoy speaking about filmmaking, steampunk, literature, and screenwriting. SpaceCityCon’s panel is up there on my list. It was my pleasure to join Matt Risoldi (monster), Christopher Lowe (tech. dir, props), J’Nean Henderson (costumes), and Peter Kovic (co-editor, documentarist) to talk about the challenges of microbudget filmmaking. One of the things I love about our larger panels is that we share our tools and tricks we used for making a film.
Quote from article:
“For the filming, some of the most important aspects to the filmmakers were to ensure that the film maintained an authentic, Victorian period-style. To maintain that look, the filmmakers needed to ensure that the costumes were beautiful and accurate. Costumes can be an expensive, especially period costumes. Luckily, the producer, Judith Shields, found J’Nean Henderson, Victorian Lady.”

“IL: You are one of the special guest panelists at this year’s Comicpalooza (2013) discussing how to make an independent film on a budget. Great topic since many indie-artists/film makers struggle with the financial aspect in launching their projects. What advice can you give indie-artists dealing with this dilemma?”
