Take a closer look at the New York borough that is home to Focus Features’ It’s Kind of a Funny Story, plus a buzzing film scene and a horde of unique movie venues.
Brooklyn | Fostering New Indie Talent
It’s Kind of a Funny Story’s writer-directors Ryan Fleck and Anna Boden are a prime example of Brooklyn filmmakers made good, however they are far from an isolated case. The borough is not only a hotbed of talent, but has an impressive array of organizations which provide education and support for up-and-coming film talent. Scott Macaulay, an New York-based film producer himself, casts an eye over the resources and facilities available in the borough – from the DUMBO-based Independent Filmmaker Project to Steiner Studios in Brooklyn Navy Yards – in The Young Person’s Guide to Filmmaking Resources in Brooklyn.
