Indie director Joseph Christiana and his
co-hosts from their hit podcast THE CUTTING ROOM, Thomas Dettloff and William
Bourassa Jr., are hoping you’ll want to take part in an experiment. They aren’t
just making a movie, they’re going to give audiences an unprecedented look into
the filmmaking process and the opportunity to influence various aspects of the
Listeners to their podcast have already
begun altering the fate of the production by choosing EXPERIMENTS IN KILLING as
the script they wanted to see made into a feature. The next steps are being
taken now – the official Kickstarter page for the film
went live today and the accompanying podcast, EXPERIMENTS IN PODCASTING, launches tomorrow on
the Horror Palace podcasting network.
Through this show, listeners will be able to hear production meetings, audio
diaries and other exclusive behind the scenes content. They will also be asked
to help the filmmakers make decisions about the production; and what the people
demand, the people will get!
At first glance, it may appear to be a bit
of a gimmick, but the prospect of just being able to take that fly on a wall
view of the production is exciting, particularly for aspiring indie filmmakers.
You will see the struggles, the beautiful agony and ecstasy of the creative
process and probably learn a hell of a lot about the process, to boot. What’s unprecedented
here, is the added ability to influence various aspects of the production
through listener polls.
One of the things missing from a major
studio production is a sense of danger, a sense that anything could happen and
disaster for the production lurks around the corner. To me, this energy is
exactly what makes indie shoots so interesting and so full of life. This risk
the filmmakers are taking has a certain rubbernecker kind of appeal, if that is
what you are into.
Filmmakers and fans alike should not miss
this! Head on over to their Kickstarter page and get a feel for the project and
then subscribe to EXPERIMENTS IN PODCASTING so you can keep up with the action.

Christiana’s past work you can check out this interview I did with him last
