It’s a rough and bumpy road to a debut feature film from writing, then after writing you have to direct it, then edit, then premiere it at a film festival, and pray to the indie heavens that your film will get distribution. Director Josh Beck who premiered his film “EVER” at Newport Beach Film Festival in 2014 decided to bypass all of this, and released his personal indie film online for the cost of FREE. The film EVER — a story about a girl coping with depression and finding new light in her life. The production was scrappy — a $12,000 movie, a crew of 3 — and together we sailed on the filmmaking ocean with varying degrees of failure and brilliance.

Director Josh Beck shares what he’s learned:
When I first set out to make a feature, I had very optimistic hopes for the future success of the film. I wanted my self-financed, very personal little project called EVER to go out and take the festival circuit by storm, and then go on to play in theaters and DVD players for audiences throughout the world. I think it’s healthy for filmmakers to be ambitious, but what happens if it doesn’t pan out the way you had planned?
Peep the film below and realize that there is no IMPOSSIBLE, only the limits you set on yourself.
