How to Make an Award Winning, Cinema Released Debut Feature at 19yrs old, Raise Finance and get Signed by WME with Destination Dewsbury’s director Jack Spring

Director Jack Spring joins Giles Alderson and Christian James to talk about how he made his debut feature ‘Destination Dewsbury’.

Jack tells us how he taught himself to raise money for his film by setting up a hot tub business at 18 years old and after netting over a £100K turnover sold it a year later so he could make his feature film Destination Dewsbury.

He tells us how he learnt how to package a film, how he got Destination Dewsbury into cinemas, how he get signed with William Morris Agency. What happens after filming and making a second film made is just as hard.

This is such a fun episode and it’s packed with stories and info and tips on how you can go and make your film too. Enjoy this week’s ep. And if so why not give us a review and share it on Twitter.
