In this episode of Indie Film Weekly, we reveal which cameras shooters are looking to buy this year, and help you avoid on-set arrests.
Co-hosts Jon Fusco, Emily Buder, and yours truly, Liz Nord discuss the dominance of Panasonic's GH5 in indie filmmaker buzz, while ARRI's Alexa rules over the Academy's Sci-Tech Awards and film sets everywhere. The show covers the potential neutering of net neutrality by the new head of America's Federal Communications Commission, and an upcoming indie-helmed Netflix show that's pissing off white people. We also hear from screenwriter Paul Laverty on his BAFTA-winning film, I, Daniel Blake and cinematographer Bojan Bazelli on his collaboration with Gore Verbinski for the wild ride that is A Cure for Wellness. In Ask No Film School, we cover when (and when not) to ask for permission for public shoots, and other tips for outdoor guerrilla filmmaking.
As always, the show brings more news you can use about gear, 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.
