The Film Trooper Podcast is here to help independent filmmakers become entrepreneurs and gain financial freedom as an artist. Much has changed in the world of independent film, that this might be a golden age when artists can finally build a sustainable living making their art. Although we propose no secret recipe for success, listen in to hear how different filmmakers, artists, entrepreneurs, and even small business owners who are outside the film industry approach their business.
Learn from their mistakes and successes, then decide how you would apply those lessons to your own journey!
