The Indie Horror Filmmakers behind "Spring"
About a year ago, a friend recommended that I see this really interesting and unique horror love story called Spring. The story started out simple enough. Good acting and an interesting story. I was entertained but honestly didn't know what the big deal was.
About halfway through, there was a twist in the story that suddenly jolted me back into the story. I quickly realized that my assumptions about where the story was going to go was way off and we were not starting down a new direction. And even once we had established the twist, the story took another twist and kept me guessing as to what was going to happen.
A few months ago, I did an interview with Jeremy Gardner, the guy who made the micro budget Zombie film The Battery. Jeremy had a small roll in Spring and I asked him about it. I was really just a fan so any information would have been great. Then one day, on a whim, I decided to tweet the filmmakers behind Spring and ask them if they would like to come on the IFA Podcast. For those who are intersted I am attaching a link to the show, but I think it's also really interesting that these guys had what was considered by many to be in the top 10 of all horror films made in 2014, and yet we discuss how most indie filmmakers still aren't able to make a living by making films alone...something that we also discussed on the previous podcast with Jeremy Gardner and Christian Stella.
