IFP FILM WEEK COVERING: The Digital Numbers Revealed. Exclusive Interview with Joe Swanberg, Filmmaker.

Joe has 27 years old and five feature films done! All of them for less than $25,000, and listen carefully, is not $25,000 each one, but all of them.

The first two films were seen in the Festival Circuit and they got distribution on DVD, the last three had their run in the festival as well and were picked up for theatrical release, the trailer that precede this entry is from Nights and Weekends, his most recent film that co-directed with a frequent collaborator and one of the favorites actors in the guerrilla film community Greta Gerwig, the movie will be premiered by IFC in NYC on October 10th.

Joe is a clever guy, you can see it right away. He's what I call a right eye user, a person with the ability to see life in a different dimension through a constant viewfinder. That's how, I think,  he's being able to produce that massive amount of material in three years. Did I mention he also have a couple of web series around?

He talks to you and me, not as a target in a conglomerated of marketing strategy, but to you and me. His films are totally natural, you almost feel like you're hanging out with the characters. Which is a warm experience.

In this Mini Interview, he shares the unshearable. True numbers about how much money you can make as a guerrilla filmmaker through Digital Distribution today.
