Benjamin Wiessner, producer of locally filmed Beast Beast, came on the show to discuss making the film in the state and the process of turning it from a short into a feature! We also discuss how he got into producing in the first place, what it takes to be a producer, and much more.

Beast Beast got a lot of attention when Alec Baldwin signed on to co-produce the film, but the team was all ready to make the movie even better he came on board. Long-time listeners know how much we love the do-or-die attitude of indie filmmakers, and this is a great example of it!
