The Hatred – Making a Movie from Idea to Lionsgate Distribution

Brief Intro

What if you could follow a movie from idea to getting distribution from Lionsgate?

I first met Michael Kehoe on Instagram (no, not on my trusty Twitter but I digress), and I had him on my podcast to discuss how he turned his short film, Hush, into the feature film, The Hatred.

The episode was extremely well received and now, The Hatred is ready for release on September 12th, 2017.  So now I’ve interviewed several members of the cast and crew and we went through the process of how they become involved with production.

If you’re a new filmmaker, curious about distribution, or just interesting in the whole process this entire post is for you.

Temple University – Temple University is a state-related-public doctoral university located in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, United States. It was founded in 1884 by Baptist Minister Russell Conwell.

Pat’s – The self-proclaimed “inventor of cheesesteak” offers classic versions of Philly’s favorite sandwich.

Geno’s – Diehards line up 24/7 for the cheesesteaks served up at this no-frills veteran spot.

Tony Luke’s – a sandwich shop that specializes in Philadelphia favorites including cheesesteaks, roast pork sandwiches and chicken cutlets.

John’s Roast Pork – Iconic roast-pork sandwich & cheesesteak joint that only accepts cash & closes by late afternoon.

— Jim’s on South Street – Original 1939 location of local chain serving authentic Philly-style cheesesteaks & hoagies.

Lazaro’s Pizza –  Family-friendly spot offers thin-crust pies & a lengthy list of subs including 18-in. cheesesteaks.

Rosa’s Fresh Pizza – Unique $1-a-slice pizzeria known for its “pay it forward” program that feeds the homeless.

Nathan For You – Writer, director and comedian Nathan Fielder (CBC’s “This Hour Has 22 Minutes”) also has a business degree, and he combines that knowledge with his unusual life experiences to help struggling small businesses boost their sales. However, Fielder’s marketing campaigns for each business can best be described as unorthodox, to the point where no traditional sales consultant would ever attempt what he does. Episodes in this docu-reality comedy include Fielder creating a distinctly smelling flavor for a yogurt shop, devising a plan for a pizzeria to guarantee delivery in eight minutes or less, and finding a way for a gas station to charge less that $2 a gallon and still be successful.
