Film industry powerhouses Panavision and RED have teamed up to create arguably the world’s most advanced cinema camera, the Panavision Millennium Digital XL 8K. Meanwhile, in Washington, an even more industry-shaking announcement has been made: Obama's plan to require time-and-a-half overtime pay for lower-income workers may forever change the way producers deal with assistants trying to climb the production ladder.

Managing Editor Emily Buder and I discuss these developments, along with some news about Netflix binge-watching, the indie-ness of Amazon's new programming, and updates from last weekend's Cinegear Expo in L.A. As always, the episode includes our Ask No Film School segment, plus grant and festival deadlines, upcoming indie film releases, and other notable things you might have missed while you were busy making films.
