Film Sense

Jul 11, 2019

When a filmmaker enjoys a certain amount of success, it most likely means they have some fans that have rallied around their work.  In this new age of branding, however, a true fan has become a much bigger part of the filmmaking process. 

Filmmakers CHRIS MANCINI and GARY DEOCAMPO join us in a discussion about the role of fans in our lives and work.

Fans are more than just our audience.  They can also finance a project via crowdfunding or promote a movie thanks to word of mouth on social networks.  The dark side of fandom is that those same supporters can also be a destructive force.

Listen to some of our experiences with fans and ways to build a beautiful friendship.
