We Pick the Best Camera for First-Time Directors [PODCAST]
In this episode of Indie Film Weekly, we finally settle one of our most FAQs: which camera should I buy?
NFS Co-hosts Jon Fusco and, yours truly, Liz Nord are joined by tech writer Charles Haine with his take on this hot topic. We also get into the DNC's film connections, the new slate of super-trailers released at last week's Comic-Con, indies nominated for this year's News & Documentary Emmys, memorials to both director Garry Marshall (Pretty Woman, Beaches) and the VCR, and some skyward drama around California's first drone-related arrest. As always, the show also brings news you can use about gear, upcoming grant and festival deadlines, this week’s indie film releases, our Ask No Film School segment, and other notable things you might have missed while you were busy making films.
