Kevin Smith on Funding 'Clerks 3;' Producer Lynda Obst

Hosted by

Lynda Obst has produced films as diverse as The Fisher King, Contact and How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days. In her new book, Sleepless in Hollywood, she deconstructs the impact of foreign markets and the loss of DVD revenue to explain how studios have become afflicted with "sequelitis" and turn a deaf ear to original ideas.

Plus, filmmaker Kevin Smith on how he plans to fund Clerks 3. He almost did a Kickstarter campaign, but upon reflection felt it wasn't right for him to take money out of a pot that could go to budding filmmakers without access to financing.
