Rakontur: Learn How a Tiny Company Can Produce 5 Documentaries in a Year
“We’re not one-hit wonders, but we might be one-trick ponies,” jokes director Billy Corben during a rainy morning at the New York City offices of Magnolia Pictures.
If Corben’s aside has any truth in it, it’s because that one-trick pony has enough material for an entire career.
In 2001, University of Miami alums Billy Corben and Alfred Spellman were invited to Sundance as the youngest filmmakers in the festival’s history.
Ten years later, the duo find themselves as busy as they’ve ever been with the success of Rakontur, their small production company that will have five projects this year alone.
