Back before the premiere of our indie film Body Farm in January, I had the chance to sit down with Brandon Keenan (Actor, Co-Producer, Co-Director) and Gena Weiss (Actor) about their roles on the production of Body Farm. We touched on what it took to get into their roles in front of the camera. We also discussed a lot of what went on behind the camera and the kind of fun we had while producing the film. And, as this is a horror film, we touched on the gory effects that made this production come to life. From beginning to end, here are the many things that go into producing an independent horror feature film!

However, we did touch on that work as I sat down with Lindsey Donley and Shay Francis, professionals in Makeup SFX. From their time at the Tom Savini School to their work in the indie film and theater communities, these two talk about how all this has played a very integral role on each project they have been a part of.
