" A true independent film, “Head Trauma” is written, directed and produced by Weiler. He is even handling his own press. But this is nothing new for Weiler who also wrote and directed the digital feature “The Last Broadcast,” which just finished a run on HBO and can be seen on IFC. He was also in “development hell” with a pilot that tested well but never got picked up, an inspiration for “Head Trauma.”
“I think in some ways it's very rewarding and there's that creative control,” said Weiler of independent filmmaking. “It's a case of the grass is always greener. You want more resources but you hear when people are working on studio films what they're looking for is more creative freedom. They're looking for the ability to own the negative, own their work. So I think it's always a Catch-22. It's very hard when you have to do all this stuff yourself. You try to maintain the integrity of the film, trying to make sure you are on schedule, trying to make sure you're getting all you can for practically nothing. I think we did that pretty well throughout the movie. I think we got a really high-quality film for what we had to work with.” "

Weiler is also theatrically self-distributing the film. It doesn't get any more indie than this.
