This edition of TCIBR is brought to you by IndieFlix and Breakthrough Distribution – Today we are joined by writer and director Steve Balderson. Often working from his home state of Kansas, Steve is a strong proponent of DIY filmmaking and the fact that movies can be made anywhere. He has written and directed narrative features (Pep Squad, Firecracker) and docs (Wamego: Making Movies Anywhere, Phone Sex). In our discussion, Steve explains the stripped down approach he took to the making of his latest doc Underbelly and how he’s building an audience for the film by focusing on the power of the niche.


For more on Steve and his films visit

For those in the Boston area Underbelly screens at the Boston Underground Film Festival this coming Sunday.

  • Yes, I agree. Very nice analysis. It is undeniable that the gaming world is consntantly evolving but at the same time will it ever hit that mainstream status that Hollywood has? Perhaps when younger games become older and have more money to spend? I dont know. Time will tell.

    Fantastic analysis of the state of games Jason. The gaming industry at large has always suffered from a major inferiority complex, especially when dealing with Hollywood.
