Who Profits from Piracy? Ellen Seidler talks to NPR

This isn’t one of those stories about a big Hollywood company suing a big Silicon Valley company for copyright infringement. ¬†This is about a struggling independent filmmaker just trying to make a living doing the work she loves.

Ellen Seidler released And Then Came Lola this spring. Seidler describes her film as a “lesbian romantic comedy.” In the tradition of many independent filmmakers, Seidler and her co-director Megan Siler used $250,000 of their own money and paid for the feature through personal loans, refinancing and credit cards.
