Jim Cummings Might Owe His Directing Career to a Shopping Cart

Facing failure isn't scary. In fact, it might be exactly what you need.

The ever-inspiring Jim Cummings joins us once again to discuss his new horror/comedy The Wolf of Snow Hollow, just in time for Halloween.

As with his (proper) debut feature Thunder Road, Cummings writes, directs, and stars. He tells us about the beauty of having a democratized film set, even on a production as large as Snow Hollow, and why filmmakers should think of themselves as competition to the industry, rather than “subordinates.” Also, why the most important thing to learn about directing is how to set up a C-stand.

The Wolf of Snow Hollow is out on iTunes today. Enjoy!

Check out some more of Cummings' insight, like How to Make the Jump From Short to Feature, his free 'Short to Feature' Lab Curriculum, a look at the future of indie film finance, and how he made the award-winning 'Thunder Road.'
