Washington, D.C. – Innovative film and television producer Braxton Pope (Shrink, The Take) will appear at NAB Show on Wednesday, April 10 to recount his uncharted journey to bring The Canyons to theaters.
Opening in July 2013, The Canyons is the first of its kind in movie making: crowdfunded via Kickstarter and cast online via website Letitcast and other online sources. IFC Films recently acquired the movie – directed by Paul Schrader (writer of Taxi Driver, Raging Bull; director American Gigolo and Affliction) – launching a fresh discussion around this new wave of filmmaking, described by Schrader as “cinema for the post-theatrical era.”
