Russia's Plot to Kill Indies & RED's Hype Machine [PODCAST]
This episode of Indie Film Weekly calls out RED's incessant product teases and shows that even indie movies aren't safe from Russian interference.
Jon Fusco, Emily Buder, and yours truly, Liz Nord discuss Russia's attempt to shut down indie filmmaking, updates in the indie box office, the battle to save net neutrality, and a too-early goodbye to actor Nelsan Ellis. We also hear from director David Lowery about the challenges of making his summer indie hit A Ghost Story.
Charles Haine joins us for gear news, including RED’s incessant product teases and a TV that might replace movie screens for good. Charles also answers an Ask No Film School question about which affordable monitors to buy.
As always, the show also brings news you can use about gear, upcoming grant and festival deadlines, new indie film releases, weekly words of industry wisdom, and other notable things you might have missed while you were busy making films.
