Today I’m joined by director Daniel Lafrentz and producer Sean Flanagan to demystify the fundraising process for narrative feature films.
Daniel is an award winning filmmaker known for his debut feature film The Long Shadow, which was awarded a jury prize at the amazing New Orleans Film Festival. Sean made his name in film distribution, having overseen the release of over 1000 films including titles for Sundance Institute, FilmRise, Paradigm, CAA and more. Together, they are developing a new feature film called Meet Cute Murders, which is a focal point of our discussion.
Throughout the interview we take a deep dive into Daniel and Sean’s experience making feature films, and how they are reverse engineering their new movie to ensure a successful release. We pay special attention to the WeFunder platform too, which is a cornerstone of their fundraising efforts, and a resource that all filmmakers could benefit from.
