NAB Sneak Peek & What’s Shutting Down Hollywood [PODCAST]

IFW 041217
In this episode of Indie Film Weekly: the strike that threatens to bring Hollywood to a halt, and what you can look forward to at NAB 2017.

Co-hosts Emily Buder, and yours truly, Liz Nord discuss the Writers Guild negotiations that could shut down Hollywood, even while a big move by Netflix attempts to bring a whole new life to production in Tinsel Town. Tech writer Charles Haine joins us to disclose all of the drone rumors from this year’s upcoming NAB show, and answers an Ask No Film School question about what focal lengths to consider when buying prime lenses. We also talk about what the new Oscar eligibility rules mean for you, and hear from two directors of indie films that are being released this week: Joe Swanberg of ‘Win it All’ and Michael O'Shea of ‘The Transfiguration.’

As always, the show also brings 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.
