By day, Tom Durham can be found on planet Earth, producing commercials, videos, TV shows, and live events. By night, after his kids go to bed, he's in other worlds making movies and writing books. Raised on old-school sci-fi and fantasy, his indie film career began with a camcorder and an Amiga computer. Since then he's become an award-winning writer, producer, director, and visual effects artist. His recent movie project is the hardcore indie guerilla sci-fi feature film 95ers, which is in worldwide distribution. Tom is currently working on a sci-fi film, a collaborative fan-powered movie studio, and a young adult fantasy novel called The Return of Magic.
How do you produce an epic sci-fi film on an indie budget? Tom Durham talks about the six-year journey of making his first feature film, 95ers.
