“This is Episode 10 of Mentorless Podcast where I deconstruct with filmmakers the creative process, strategies, practical steps, and lessons learned during the making of their film, from idea to completion.
In this episode, I interview German writer-director Ivy Jelisavac with whom I deconstruct the making of her web-series: Relationsh*t.
Ivy has a clear vision of where she is heading and the brand she wants to build. During our conversation we talk about how she decided which project to push forward when she was at a crossroad of opportunities, what having a business mindset as an indie filmmaker really means, why she decided to book an industry premiere before the web series was done and the benefits of doing so, the challenges and opportunities to have a Patreon as a filmmaker and much much more.”
“First up tonight I chatted to London-based film maker Ivy Jelisavac. Ivy has just produced a new web series, Relationshit (or ‘Relationbeep’ as we referred to it in the interview!), which is currently on the film festival circuit. As we found out, the show’s production was a fascinating story in itself, being written, directed & costume/set designed (among other things) by Ivy herself, and even featuring an actor who went on to a Star Wars role! Ivy and her production company The Friction are currently developing a new feature film (click the interview to hear more about that) and many more new projects – keep up to date on their latest news at www.becauseivy.com, www.the-friction.com & www.relationshit.tv.”
