Search Engines, from writer/director Russell Brown, won the Grand Jury Prize for Best Feature Film at the 2016 Sherman Oaks Film Festival. Russell is a filmmaker who appreciates and makes the most of the film festival circuit. Every now and then, he even sends a programmer like me an email that updates me about his newer projects.
With out last email exchange I realized it was long past due for Russell to be on the Discover Indie Film podcast. He didn’t disappoint. In fact, I can honestly say that I learned a lot listening to Russell share his film festival experiences and his experiences distributing independent films.
As far as I can recall, there’s not too many spoilers for Search Engines in the interview, so I’m not going to urge you like crazy to watch it before listening. But watch it! It’s a great example of an indie feature that came together in just the right way.
