  • 4 Reasons Actors Should Do Indie Film

    Adam Saunders heads Footprint Features, a Los Angeles–based independent production company. Footprint’s latest film, “About Alex,” which stars Aubrey Plaza and Max Greenfield, opens Aug. 8.
    What advice do you have for actors who want to produce?
    When I was just acting, I felt very powerless. Even if I got a job, I was desperate: Where’s my next job coming from? What’s great about producing is that you restore some control not only to your professional life but also to your life in general. There are so many examples of actors creating their own work now; it’s worthwhile. It says, “I’m not just waiting around for someone to give me an opportunity.”
    Can actors make a living in independent film?
    With back-end deals, they can make money. But what attracts actors to indie films is the material. Character-driven films are actor bait. They’re playing characters they can really explore, and that can open up other paydays.
    Are you shooting and casting in Los Angeles?
    I always say, “Don’t shoot your film in L.A.” It’s almost impossible to make the money back that you would have gotten in a tax incentive by staying here. It’s still cheaper
