Ed Burns Reflects on Indie Film

Wednesday, January 25th, 2012 by

Edward Burns has been in the independent spotlight for the greater part of two months now with his uncanny timing of still being young enough to take advantage of new filmmaking innovation while having enough experience to provide retrospectives that help round out how the industry is taking shape in the 21st century.

Newlyweds, a film of surprising quality given the surprisingly low budget of $9000, gives us part of Burns’ perspective on the shifting indie world and opens the door to new and innovative ways for young and eager filmmakers to get at it (yes, get at it – as in, get at some filmmaking!).

Recently Burns did a video interview with Collider.Com where he talked about his recent role in the movie Man On A Ledge, a film telling the story of an ex-cop feigning suicide as a front to a greater plan in achieving vindication for a crime he did not commit. In the interview Burns covers the bridges that independent film has crossed between its outbreak in the 90s to now when, he feels, technology is opening the door to a much wider set of creative minds.

Check out the interview here, or at Collider.Com.
