    Cold Weather's Katz & McFadden Talk Characters, Genre, Free Collaboration

    TOH's Sophia Savage flip-cammed Cold Weather writer-director Aaron Katz and writer-producer Brendan McFadden. Here's her report; video is below):Cold Weather opens in Los Angeles February 11 at Laemmle's Sunset 5. This genre-bender is a meditation on human relationships dressed as a mystery-thriller. The film plays by its own rules, refusing to be rushed by short attention spans or pressured by mainstream expectations.

Plus, collaboration is not only free -- it's a recipe for indie success. Here...
