**More About this Episode**Indie Film Distribution: Interview with Trey Reynolds, VP Development, Provident Films
It’s one thing to make a movie, it’s another to get it distributed.
“If you’re a person of faith, spend a lot of time with the Lord and follow God’s direction. Put some people around you that can give you some nice wisdom... Become skilled at your craft, screenwriting, cinematography, whatever. What I see too often is passion for ministry or passion to tell a story trumps the time it takes to really make it ready for production and compete in the marketplace.” -Trey Reynolds
