EPISODE 177: D.C. HAMILTON & BRINNA KELLY (PART 2)

In Episode 177, Trev and AJ talk about the power of routine and ritual, discuss the shifts happening in the industry in light of the Sony hack (and Amazon’s Golden Globe wins), and kick around some thoughts in response to a great listener email regarding marketing yourself during the festival circuit.

Then Trev sits down for Part 2 of his interview with filmmakers D.C. Hamilton & Brinna Kelly to discuss the journey from actor to producer (and back again), and what it takes to get a low-budget feature film funded (say that three times fast) and produced in today's market. Total running time: 53:06.

I'm a 40 (something) actress, and singer on a life long adventure of navigating the business of acting, the business of single motherhood, and the "business" of everyday life. I've been performing, writing, producing, and directing in one form or another since I was a small child. I have a BFA in Theatre from Niagara University and I am currently based in Arizona. I also host a new podcast for actors (lovingly inspired by IAP) called Living the Dream Acting (available on iTunes) which features artists living in all parts of the country who are trying to live their Artistic Dreams. You can find out more about me, my inspirations, and the podcast by going to www.LivingtheDreamActing.com.

I am an actor and agrologist – yes, that combination does exist. Having grown up in Switzerland, I moved to Canada over a decade ago. After completing a Master of Science and working in the field, I finally acknowledged the lifelong desire to be an actor. I am currently working to finish my acting degree at the University of Saskatchewan, Canada. // @Mori2U
