As a producer on an independent film, I would imagine that there lies a great challenge in being productive (so to speak) while at the same time allowing and enabling the director to see out his or her vision for the film. Especially when that film is one like HOWL, which chronicles the famous literary work from then young poet Allen Ginsberg, as well as the public outcry towards the poem's subject matter and language.

Check out our interview with HOWL producers Christine K. Walker & Elizabeth Redleaf who talk about some of the challenges of wearing two hats, as well as working on a biopic. Walker would know, as she is a seasoned vet of these films having also produced AMERICAN SPLENDOR, about renowned comic book artist Harvey Pekar, and FACTOTUM, about American author Charles Bukowski.
