#9. Producer Gemma Bradley Talks About Black Box & Independent Filmmaking

Film producer Gemma Bradley joins this episode of the Movies In Focus Podcast. Gemma is an independent filmmaker who has produced the urban thriller Brother’s Day and the recent science fiction film Black Box.

I’ve known Gemma for well over 20 years. She’s the younger sister of my best friend Robert who was sadly killed by a drunk driver in the year 2000.

 Funded largely through a Kickstarter campaign, this low budget film’s location setting and claustrophobic use of space has echoes of Alfonso Cuarón’s 2013 Gravity. Whereas Cuarón had a $100 million budget at his disposal, Gemma and director Angel Delgado had a considerably smaller budget (thousands, not millions). However, what they did have was ingenuity – which makes Black Box a tremendous feat in low budget, independent filmmaking.

Gemma chatted about many things - including the trials and tribulations of producing low budget independent films and using crowdfunding as a way of raising finance her latest film Black Box.
