Hail the Disruptors! [PODCAST]
In this episode of Indie Film Weekly, we reveal companies, new gear, and filmmakers that are changing the game for indie directors.
Co-hosts Jon Fusco, Emily Buder, and yours truly, Liz Nord introduce a new film incubation model from Pretty__Ideas, a new level of financial transparency from The Orchard, and a badass new drone from DJI. We also talk about Peacock Productions’ move to unionize and chat with composer Jeremy Flower about how to go about creating an original score for your film. 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.
