Jen West and James Martin are partners in life, partners in filmmaking (they alternate between directing and producing on each film), and partners in a string of successful crowdfunding projects.
Now they face a new challenge -- distributing their most recent completed film (a doc short about a famous New Orleans cocktail) online and on the festival circuit while raising funds for the next film.
