Ted Balaker on Distributing Feature Documentary Can We Take a Joke?

October 31, 2016

Today we’re doing something a little bit different. We’re going to keep the conversation in-house, and talk with Ted Balaker, the co-founder of Korchula Productions. You’ve heard us talk a lot about our feature documentary Can We Take a Joke?, and we thought that for this final episode of our first season, we’d give you a little behind-the-scenes look at the making of the documentary and, more pertinent to the theme of this podcast, the distribution plan and the execution of that plan. Ted was the director of this film, and we just thought hearing that about that experience in our own words might be useful to those of you out there who are starting or even in the middle of your own projects.
