Assorted Kinds Podcast

Making movies seems like an impossible endeavor for most. Limited resources. Self doubt. Real life obligations that come first but never go away. You aren’t the only one with these excuses, and making movies doesn’t have to be as hard as you make it out to be. Every month, join members of the Assorted Kinds Film Collective as they explore how to push past excuses to get passion projects made. From seasoned to first time filmmakers, this podcast explores the juicy behind the scenes stories of each month’s Assorted Kinds release and cracks open each filmmaker’s struggles, fears, failures and accomplishments.  Whether you enjoy hearing stories about filmmakers overcoming obstacles to get their projects completed, or have a burning desire to bootstrap your own film projects, this podcast is a direct line into the heart and soul of independent filmmaking.

Making "The Fantastic Folly of Future Jess" -- ASK005

First time writer/director Christopher Ryan Laughter is joined by his short film collaborators Nicole Castillo, Jeremie Brillant and Taylor Shofner to discuss making his project about an animated piece of broccoli attempting to alter their past self’s actions. Kevin Rosen Quan and David Gallardo co-host this episode discussing what it took to make a short film about time travel in a single day using a single location, how difficult it was to pack such a dense world and story into a single scene, and all the learnings that came along with the filmmaker’s first writing/directing experience.
