August Meeting: Schirmer and Taylor talk FOUND and HEADLESS

Elvira's Horror Hunt: Indianapolis
Scott Schirmer and Leya Taylor will discuss their experience directing and producing the micro-budget festival hit “Found.” “Found” was shot entirely in Indiana (primarily in Bloomington) with an all-volunteer cast & crew in 2011. Since its Bloomington premiere in July 2012, it has played in over 40 film festivals around the world and was just released by XLrator Media on iTunes, VOD and in a limited theatrical run on August 15th.

Leya and Scott will tell the whole “Found” story – from finding a concept worth fighting for, attracting and keeping a volunteer crew, marketing for success, film festival submission tips, film festival attendance, distribution, crowd funding, why horror is a filmmaker’s best friend, and parlaying the success of one movie into the creation of another (they are filming “Headless” in October).
