Welcome to BREAKING IN WITH BEN PHELPS, a podcast about what happens when a filmmaker who's never made a feature film, makes one. Do you love the Behind the Scenes features on DVD and Blu-ray? Now imagine sharing that experience in real time. Not after the film is being made, but as it's being made. If you enjoyed REBEL WITHOUT A CREW by Robert Rodriguez, then this podcast is right up your alley. I'm an independent filmmaker from Sydney, Australia. After making some award-winning short films, I'll chronicle the ups and downs of making my debut feature film. There will be interviews with established filmmakers, cast, crew, friends and family. Laughs, blood, sweat and tears. It's going to be a blast!
