Interview with the Hazard Film Project

Welcome listeners to a new interview from the Back Lot. Joining us today is Daniel Bergeson and Bobby Peacock of the Hazard Film Project. This non-profit film project is based in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. As of this recording is over 90% of the way of reaching its funding for the film. The Hazard Film Project aims to educate audiences both in front of and behind the camera. The fundraising for the project will be used to help more than finance the film. They will also be coordinating educational seminars in the state of South Dakota. We are super delighted to have Daniel and Bobby on the podcast. We sit down to discuss their passion and creativity behind the Hazard Film Project.

Hazard Film Project will be entirely shot in South Dakota. It also will use a majority of it’s crew from in state, with Bergeson in the director’s seat.
