New York’s New Indie Film Scene: From Dunham to Perry and Beyond

Indie Story 3 Split - H 2013

From dumpster diving for craft services to making movies starring Jennifer Aniston, here’s the inside story on the struggles and triumphs of a scene that extends far beyond Lena Dunham.

Lawrence Levine and Sophia Takal, a young married filmmaking team, sit in the corner of a Brooklyn speakeasy, nursing a pair of elaborate mixed drinks filled to the brim of martini glasses. The order was expensive, but they feel OK indulging here and there; after several years of struggle, things are looking up. Their next film, a genre whodunit called Wild Canaries, will be their most expensive and ambitious to date, and several friends and colleagues in their orbit are hitting it big — especially a once-unknown actress they gave a bit part in a movie four years ago named Lena Dunham.
