RIP Final Cut & Indie Film's Sex Abuse Scandal [PODCAST]
This episode of Indie Film Weekly says a final goodbye to Final Cut 7 and dissects a scandal in the LA indie film community.
Jon Fusco, Emily Buder, and yours truly, Liz Nord discuss the CineFamily controversy that's shaking up LA's underground film scene, how much cash exactly is made by the films of top-grossing indie directors, and an update on last week's record-breaking story about whether or not MoviePass will mean the end of theater-going as we know it. We also say sad goodbyes to editor Eric Zumbrunnen, comedian and filmmaker Jerry Lewis, and the print edition of the Village Voice.
Charles Haine joins us for gear news, including the death of Final Cut 7, and answers an Ask No Film School question about how to create a fog effect in your film.
As always, the show also brings news you can use about gear, upcoming grant and festival deadlines, weekly words of industry wisdom, indie film releases, and other notable things you might have missed while you were busy making films.
