'Thirst Street': How Nathan Silver Made 8 Indies in 8 Years [PODCAST]

Nathan Silver's new film, psychosexual drama 'Thirst Street,' is the eighth he's made in eight years. Here's how he pulls it off.

No Film School's Emily Buder sits down with prolific indie filmmaker Nathan Silver and the stars of his latest movie, Thirst Street: Lindsay Burdge and Damien Bonnard.  Silver has made a movie every year for the past 8 years. Last year, he had the film Actor Martinez at Tribeca. Needless to say, Silver is a staple in the New York indie film scene.

In their conversation, they discuss how Silver manages to get his micro-budget projects off the ground, some tips for shooting with limited resources, Thirst Street's distinctive '70s psychodrama aesthetic, and the extreme emotional risks some of the main actors had to take for their roles.
