Welcome to another round of Indie Beat! For the uninitiated, this podcast focuses on indie filmmakers (and soon programmers, critics, producers) that You May Not Know But Should™. We’re a conversational show, so the typical film-specific Q&A segments will be minimal — we’re more concerned with where the artist finds inspiration, how they work in the field, how they pay the bills, what their assessment of the current filmmaking climate is, etc.
This episode we check in with filmmaker Andrew Gitomer, a New York-based director who just unleashed his web series “For Ex-Lovers Only” (trailer). The show follows the post-breakup life of Zoe (Genevieve Hudson-Price, “Show Me A Hero“) and Joanna (Tess Harrison) as Zoe struggles to pick up the pieces of her life.
Gitomer’s movies are generally relationship/friendship dramas (sometimes with a surreal/magical-realist bent) focused on women, complete with killer soundtracks and potent mid-20s malaise. Check out the trailer to his feature “Past Present Future,” the sizzle reel to his next feature “Pretty Girls,” and the first episode of “For Ex-Lovers Only” below! (The rest of the series can be found here).
