FROM THIS EPISODE

This week, our producer Darby Maloney talks with filmmaker Evan Glodell about his breaking-in story. His debut feature, Bellflower -- a real DIY indie made with friends on a micro-budget -- sold quickly at the Sundance Film Festival. But that success came at a price. By the time he'd submitted it to Sundance he'd devoted four years of his life to the movie and sacrificed -- money, a home, clothes -- and Glodell was losing faith that it was worth it. Now the movie is in nearly 500 theaters and Glodell is earning a reputation as a new indie filmmaker worth watching.
