Blue Valentine, the celebrated 2012 film that follows one couple's tumultuous marriage, has the intimate feel of a movie made simply. Except, it took 12 years, 66 drafts of the script, and endless headaches over budget shortfalls to get Blue Valentine made. And that isn't an anomaly.
Independent producers are responsible for some of the greatest breakout hits in movie history. They fight passionately for their art, meeting every logistical and financial challenge along the way. And these roadblocks often force indie film producers to be just as creative as their acting and directing counterparts. On this panel, we hear from Blue Valentine producer Alex Orlovsky, Beasts of the Southern Wild producer Matt Parker, Meadowland producer and co-star Olivia Wilde, and Bachelorette producer Carly Hugo. Moderating this panel is The Hollywood Reporter’s Tatiana Seigel.
