#10: Pitching to a Priest by Kevin Del Principe

Pitching a feature movie to an executive is tough enough, but what if you had to do it to a Catholic Priest in rural Michigan?  I Animal author and filmmaker Kevin Del Principe explains.  

“Kevin is a long-time creative collaborator and friend of mine.  We both know the throes of being in and out of Hollywood at the same time.  It’s like that for a lot of creatives.  The stars in the all the magazines are really just a small minority in the huge pool of those making content.  Kevin is one of those dudes that just works to make things happen for himself, regardless of whether he is “in” or “out”.  One day, he was like, “I’m making my first feature film.”  And then roughly a year later, he’s on a plane to Michigan to shoot his film.  It’s cool for me to hear that he had quite a memorable experience during his shoot of Up On The Glass, one that involved an unexpected Catholic priest.  Kevin goes deeper into the significance of that priest in this episode.  We also joke about our old web series that forecasted Putin before the 2016 election happened.  We used to do a lot of Putin jokes, but now we’re scared to do more.”
