SXSW Podcast Special: Ted Hope

on Friday, Mar. 11th


 

Ted Hope is one of the most prolific independent film producers alive. His latest picture, writer-director James Gunn’s Super, has its U.S. premiere on Saturday at SXSW.

In this interview, recorded before the festival, we spoke with Ted Hope about the state of the indie film scene, which is undergoing a kind of renaissance. Hope talks with host Noah Nelson about the resurgence of the indie film market, and how new methods of collaboration are changing independent cinema.

Bonus: during the interview, we make reference to a discussion held between Ted Hope and former CEO of the Tribeca Film Institute Brian Newman. Video of that talk, which was part of the Vimeo Festival last October, can be found here.
