Today on the show we have British filmmaker David M. Reynolds, co-founder of Realm Pictures and the visionary director behind the amazing, soon to be released, web-based sci-fi/fantasy adventure “The Underwater Realm.” On January 1 they finished a wildly successful Kickstarter campaign where they raised over $100,000 towards an original goal of just $60,000.
In this episode David recounts:
- How he got started in filmmaking
- The challenges one faces when running his own production company
- How he got the idea for “The Underwater Realm”
- Raising the Kickstarter funds
- The amazing industry connections the productions has garnered
- Making their weekly “how to” videos
- The making of their zombie thriller “Zomblies“
- Shooting “The Underwater Realm”
- Future plans
- And much, much more.
Post Credits Fun
As usual, you want to stay past the end credits. Loads of fun as I call a Motel 6 in hopes of creating an international resort video portfolio.
Enter Drawing for Free Music
Each week we will also give away a free song from Triple Scoop Music (a $60 value). All you have to do is tweet one of these two lines…
Hey @rondawson, the featured @triplscoopmusic artist this week on @crossingthe180 is NAME
Hey @rondawson, the featured @triplscoopmusic song this week on @crossingthe180 is NAME
Replace NAME with the name of the artist or the song. It doesn’t have to be the artist’s Twitter name, but if you DO find and include their Twitter handle, I’ll enter you twice! You have to enter the tweet exactly like this so that I know you’ve done it and because there’s no “e” in Triple Scoop Music’s twitter handle. Your best bet is to copy and paste. Do this throughout the week and on next week’s show I’ll announce the winner. You can do this every week until further notice.
Triple Scoop Music is also offering a discount on your next purchase. You gotta listen to the episode to find out the code.
