Today, I spoke with Eric Chaney whose debut feature film Indigo Children becomes available on iTunes on August 23rd, 2016.
Eric has a solid mentality about the business of independent film, saving money and making sure to use the contacts you have in your life to get the things you need to tell your story. I really like the reality of Indigo Children’s production, as Eric mentions that it took seven years of actual work to get the story planned, filmed, and then released to the public.
The story is about a mysterious girl who pursues a young man in her new small town home. Coinciding deaths and a disappearance create a common thread between them as they struggle with young love and loss over the course of one summer.
There is certainly enough in the film to keep you interested from a cinematography point of view, the film looks gorgeous and it really helps with the immersion into the story world when you forget the camera is there and you just want to follow along with the characters.
I’ve spoken in the past about how entrepreneurship and film making go hand-in-hand, especially in the indie world and that you have to do as much as possible from a savings point of view to get your dreams out there. Eric, while younger and releasing this as a debut, already shares this belief.
So much of what we do in the indie world revolves around penny pinching, tapping resources (friends, family, colleagues), and just being brave enough to journey into the muddy waters to come out with a clean and shiny product at the end. I’m really excited to see what comes of Indigo Children and what Eric has for us in the future.
