Co-hosts Jon Fusco, and yours truly, Liz Nord discuss a Japanese company that has begun broadcast tests with 8K footage, and a Chinese one that is looking to assume the GoPro throne with a new action camera. We also get into Vice’s upcoming nightly news show, Academy-Award-winning screenwriter Mark Boal’s First Amendment battles, and what Netflix and Amazon's increased spending on programming means for indie filmmakers. As always, the show also brings news you can use about gear, upcoming grant and festival deadlines, this week’s indie film releases, our Ask No Film School segment, and other notable things you might have missed while you were busy making films.
