Low to No Budget Practical Filmmaking for the indie filmmaker. Helping to bring Indie Film to the world.


The Indie Film Place Podcast was launched February 2018 by independent filmmaker Russ Cootey. The intent of this podcast is to inspire other filmmakers and artists to whole heartedly follow their dreams.


This business is extremely tough. We constantly subject ourselves to the criticism and judgment of others. We are told regularly that we are either “Too” this, or “Too” that. We are told that we need to fit into a certain mold in order to succeed, or to get anywhere.


As filmmakers it’s preposterous to believe that as technology changes almost daily, we need to have the latest gear to be successful. We don’t. Great gear will not make you a great filmmaker.


The only rule to being a filmmaker is to get out and film something.
