I love the spirit of Independent Horror filmmakers, especially fans who are compelled to create, no matter what the odds.

In today’s episode I interview Nick Hunt, the director/producer/creator of SAFE PLACE.

Nick is a true independent spirit, and we talk about the tremendous amount of legwork required to get his movie into production, how lack of experience didn't deter him, and an eye-opening peek into the power of social media as a marketing tool. 

We also talk about my favorite subject: horror movies! Nick talks about his influences, his desire to break down tired tropes, and his optimism for a brave new world in horror.

In the tried and true tradition of low budget horror movies, we celebrate that independent spirit in this episode and the drive of all independent filmmakers to get their work made and seen.
