James Boyd is a guru of low-budget, do-it-yourself filmmaking. He’s also an old friend of Christy's who shares a love of movies, so it was great to reconnect after nearly 30 years for this Breakfast All Day A La Carte conversation. Jim discusses his early interest in film growing up in Texas, moving out to Los Angeles to pursue his dreams of working in the industry and launching the all-digital Nodance Film Festival, which he ran for many years, to boost aspiring filmmakers during Sundance. He talks about the work he does through his production company, 6161 Entertainment, and how he has found a way to keep surviving and thriving and embracing technology as it continually changes. Lots of helpful tips in this one, so take a listen and enjoy.
