Hello, Indie Creatives! 

In this year ending episode, we have a conversation with Producer, Actor, and Co-Owner of Pollen Path Entertainment, Tom Stajmiger. Tom talks about the correct expectations for making and exploiting a short film, finding your filmmaking tribe, and the downside of funding your film via Kickstarter.

Enjoy!
