What to Look for in a Budget Lens & Why Mamet is Anti-Film School [PODCAST]
This episode of Indie Film Weekly reveals how to find your next lens and screenwriting wisdom from David Mamet.
Jon Fusco, Emily Buder, and yours truly, Liz Nord discuss the new coalition that has longtime rivals HBO and Netflix joining forces, why producers are losing money, and a new digital filmmaking initiative in LA. Charles Haine joins us for gear news and answers an Ask No Film School question about how to buy good lenses on a budget. In Weekly Words of Wisdom, we share tips from Steven Spielberg, Game of Thrones costume designer Michele Clapton, and David Mamet himself on the three best ways to learn filmmaking.
As always, the show also brings news you can use about gear, upcoming grant and festival deadlines, this week’s indie film releases, and other notable things you might have missed while you were busy making films.
