Podcast Ep. 5: Micro-budget Exploitation Horror, with Steven Richards

Steven_Richards_Slating_400x400

Who says film has to be art? What is art, anyway? Sometimes a film is just a film – as in the case of very-low-budget exploitation horror.  And sometimes there’s a rough kind of art to be found in these kinds of films due to their utter lack of pretense.

Steven Richards is an actor, director, writer, editor, cook…. you name it.  When you’re working with a small group of close friends on a shoestring budget you’ve got opportunities you’ll never have on the set of a big-time Hollywood production.

In this episode, Steven Richards and I discuss the unique world of micro-budget horror:

  • Budgeting – making something with (almost) nothing
  • Casting – reaching out to adult film and cult personalities
  • Filming – on location in the desert
  • Marketing and distribution – targeting your audience
  • Editing – and why you should NEVER volunteer to edit improv material.
