Variety recently named my movie-producer brother, Nicholas Tabarrok, one of 10 Producers to Watch. Starting tomorrow he will be guest blogging for a week here at Marginal Revolution. Nicholas's firm, Darius Films, has produced a lot of good indie movies including Weirdsville, Cooper's Camera (starring Daily Show veterans Jason Jones and Samantha Bee) and one of my favorites The Life and Hard Times of Guy Terrifico which features Kris Kristofferson, Merle Haggard and many other country stars. His latest is Defendor, one of the few films to sell this year at the Toronto film festival and starring Woody Harrelson, Kat Dennings and Sandra Oh. No blockbusters or Academy Awards yet but Nick's track record of bringing investors, stars, directors and actors together–all of whom are utterly crazy in their own way– to make movies on-budget and on-time is truly amazing.
I'm not sure what he will be blogging this week but if you have questions or ideas to suggest feel free to put them in the comments.
