1 – Jump Into the Deep End

This is me, the face behind the voice.







Welcome to Episode 1 of BREAKING IN WITH BEN PHELPS, a podcast about what happens when a filmmaker who’s never made a feature film, makes one. We’ve launched in iTunes Podcasts (Apple), Stitcher (Android) and lots of other podcast apps. Woohoo! In this first episode you’ll discover what inspired me to jump into the deep end of the pool and make a feature film. You’ll also find out why I’m sharing this adventure on a podcast.

Check out the links below that I refer to in Episode 1. The renegade spirit of American independent filmmaker, Ed Burns, has been a big influence on my decision to ‘just do it!’
