V3con is happy to highlight the First 10 People to Register for the conference on Aug. 24-25 in Los Angeles. Among that hallowed group is Patrick Epino. He is a Los Angeles-based filmmaker and co-founder of the National Film Society, a new media studio and PBS web series. He was selected by the film magazine, The Independent, as one of its “10 Filmmakers to Watch” for his first feature film, Mr. Sadman. Let’s get to know him better:
