Ed Burns Says Digital Is Future of Indie Films

Actor-Director Ed Burns says digital platforms have helped ease some of the financial pressure, allowing films like “Johnny” to reach millions of viewers at home and online.

Instead of a costly theatrical release, the film will be released Oct. 26 on iTunes, Netflix and Video on Demand.

“I decided we wanted to capture a little bit of that renegade sprit that we had on ‘Brothers McMullen,'” says Burns.

“So we set some parameters on this film. We wouldn’t spend more than $25,000, we’d only work with a three-man crew, we wanted to hire all unknowns, and there would be no hair, no makeup, wear your own clothes, shot in my parents’ house again.”
