We were lucky enough to record a live show during Indy PopCon last week at their podcasting stage. Thank you to all of the people who showed up to listen! For this episode, since we were going to be broadcasting at PopCon, we wanted to talk film.
Starting TOMORROW is the start of the Indy Film Fest. We were joined by Chris Overpeck and Dan Moore and they helped plan the yearly festival. This year's festival takes place July 13-23 at the Indianapolis Museum of Art. Some of the films they will feature this year are: Wind River, Lucky, and Patti Cake$
The festival is 10 days and there are several different ticket types available for purchase, depending on your schedule. If you want to purchase tickets, please visit their website: https://indyfilmfest.org/
You may not be aware, but one of the most influential companies for the movie studios is located right here in Indianapolis. Fizziology is a great company located in Broad Ripple and they provide social media data to all the movie studios (except Disney) to help them make casting decisions, choose opening days, and predict how well a movie will do at the box office. Their software tracks all the sentiment from users on websites like Twitter, Facebook, Reddit, etc. and they provide all of that data for TV and movie studios.
Ben Carlson and Jen Handley are Co-founders and Co-CEOs of Fizziology and they also own The Hatch, a co-working facility located in Broad Ripple. Having traveled regularly to the east and west coasts, they saw what worked and what didn't with the typical office and co-working facility. So, they put those lessons into their office and created The Hatch.
