The Risks of Making a Super Bowl Ad & Secrets To Shooting a Perfect Long Take [PODCAST]

Indie Film Weekly 020917
In this episode of Indie Film Weeklywe debate whether or not America’s biggest day of ad spending helps aspiring directors.

Co-hosts Jon Fusco, Emily Buder, and yours truly, Liz Nord discuss this year’s crop of filmmaker-helmed Super Bowl spots, and whether contests that ask directors to work on spec are helpful or harmful to indie makers. Plus, it’s a bumper week for new lenses, awards season marches on, and we say goodbye to tripod innovator Lino Manfrotto. In Ask No Film School, Charles Haine gives tips on creating a film that appears to be shot in one long take. As always, we also bring you the latest gear news, upcoming grant and festival deadlines, this week’s indie film releases, and other notable things you might have missed while you were busy making films.
