'Hunter-Gatherer' Director Josh Locy on Why Now is the Time to Make Small Movies

Executive producers David Gordon Green, Danny McBride, and Jody Hill (among others) enable the story of one man's reintegration into life in South LA.

What sounds like a heavy story of redemption actually finds its way to an light, up-tempo story of a man (Andre Royo, who took home the SXSW Jury Prize for Best Actor) trying to prove himself to the woman he still loves.

No Film School spoke with Royo, Sample and director Josh Locy about performance, shooting select sequences on super 16, and taking narrative risks.
