The Dangers of Being on Set & Best Advice from Summer's Top Indie Directors [PODCAST]
In this episode of Indie Film Weekly, what happens when tragedy strikes on set?
Jon Fusco, Emily Buder, and yours truly, Liz Nord discuss George Romero's DIY Legacy, what filmmakers should note about last week's Emmy nominations, and a trio of stories about crucial on-set safety issues. We also share the best advice we've gotten from some of summer's biggest indie directors, and hear from Killing Ground director Damien Power about his 11-year journey to get his newly released film made.
Charles Haine joins us for gear news, and answers an Ask No Film School question about whether your production company should accept credit cards.
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.
