Have you ever heard of the tickling fetish? Neither had we—until the very angry subjects of the documentary Tickled stormed a recent screening. We discuss that, Skywalker Sound's new multi-directional audio tech, the tragic loss of Anton Yelchin (who was a big proponent of indie film), what net neutrality means for filmmakers, and more.

The episode is hosted by No Film School Editor-in-Chief Liz Nord, Producer Jon Fusco, and yours truly, Managing Editor Emily Buder. As always, it includes our Ask No Film School segment, plus grant and festival deadlines, gear news, upcoming indie film releases, and other notable things you might have missed while you were busy making films.
