Â The producer of the hit indie film NAPOLEON DYNAMITE will be joining us to share his secrets of producing an international film sensation. Â Sean Covel hails from South Dakota, but he got his undergrad degree from the University of Nebraska-Kearney. His masters is from the USC Peter Stark Producing Program, where he met his producing partner, Chris Wyatt. Â Their first effort, NAPOLEON DYNAMITE, was directed by Jared Hess. Made for only $400,000, the film premiered at the Sundance Film Festival and quickly sold to Fox Searchlight and MTV Films. The picture went on to make $44 million domestically and over $100 million on DVD, making it one of the most profitable independent films in history. Â The duo have since produced three films coming out later this year: THINK TANK (CFE), BENEATH (Paramount Classics/MTV Films), and 12 DOGS (Universal).
