Check out day two of our Nashville adventure:

Day Two of our Nashville Film Festival experience begins with a free bacon buffet in the hotel. Reportedly, there were other breakfast foods present, even on my plate, but I couldn’t get past the words “free bacon.” Even though I suspect many of the filmmakers had been up late the night before, many are up bright and early for breakfast. We’re independent filmmakers, which means for the most part, we’re all also flat broke. Free food wins out over a hangover any day.
At breakfast, we run into Tony the Detroit filmmaker we had met the night before. We talked about each other’s films, swapped war stories and generally encouraged one another. Tony is a breath of fresh air in the indie film world: a middle-aged guy who has earned his living doing broadcast work and commercials who decided to make his first movie before it was too late.
