169. John Venable “First Person”

John Venable, Charlie Baker & Jeff Howard at SOFF 2019

Writer, Actor and Producer John Venable brought his film “First Person” to the Sherman Oaks Film Festival in 2019 and this hilarious comedy found launches Season 3 of the Discover Indie Film TV Series on Amazon Prime Video by being the first film in the first episode.

At the festival Q&A John and his team shared the interesting concept behind the film’s production; it began with a short screenplay contest called “Hollywood Connection Short Screenplay Contest” at shortscreenplay.com where the winning script would be produced.  And unlike a lot of contests, John followed through and made the film!  Not only did he make the film, but he brought in lead actor Charles Baker, known to the public as Skinny Pete from Breaking Bad.  Doing this podcast we get to dive deep into the history of this film as well as its future.
