Today on What’s My Frame? I’m joined by Producer and Director Stu Pollard. Stu shares his story and creative journey, from a young student with loads of creativity and imagination, to his time at USC where he earned his MFA in film. He later returned to the USC campus teaching filmmaking for over ten years. Stu is an excellent example of working hard, knowing what you don’t know, being willing to learn and coming back to create opportunities at home. His highly successful film RUST CREEK currently streaming on Netflix, was filmed in his home state of Kentucky.

Stu has also produced countless projects outside the bluegrass stage. Including PLUS ONE Winner of the 2019 Tribeca Film Festival Audience Award. Syrian refugee documentary THIS IS HOME, produced in partnership with Blumhouse, and Winner of 2018 Sundance Audience Award.

Stu also shares rare insight into the producing world. His production company Lunacy is committed to filmmaking in Kentucky, gender-balanced crews, and discovering emerging storytellers. Lunacy has more than a dozen features and episodic projects in development. Including the just released LunacyU offering creatives in depth insight into learning both the art and business of filmmaking.
