How to Break into Modern Hollywood & The Latest DSLR Fail [PODCAST]
In this episode of Indie Film Weekly, the "reverse engineering" of today's Hollywood and yet another DSLR disappointment.
Jon Fusco, Emily Buder, and yours truly, Liz Nord discuss the new rules for breaking into Hollywood and why "constantly reminding people you exist is now part of the job." We also share what we learned from last week's Comic-Con and the 38th News and Docs Emmy nominations, which were announced this week. We bid farewell to both Adobe Flash and the YouTube editing tool. Our rundown of this week's indie film releases is particularly robust, with no less than six festival favorites hitting theaters.
Charles Haine joins us for gear news, including Canon's latest camera fail, and answers an Ask No Film School inquiry about the differences between online and offline editing.
As always, the show also brings news you can use about gear, upcoming grant and festival deadlines, industry words of wisdom, and other notable things you might have missed while you were busy making films.
