Hollywood's Dark Overlord & Panasonic's Race for Indie Dominance [PODCAST]
In this episode of Indie Film Weekly, we discuss the camera that Panasonic hopes will win back indie DPs, and the threat holding Hollywood ransom.
Jon Fusco, Emily Buder, and yours truly, Liz Nord also uncover the indie heart of the Wonder Woman phenomenon, and how its director Patty Jenkins' next move is coming directly to a niche streaming service near you. The episode goes into Apple's first original program, and says goodbye to Peter Sallis, the voice of Wallace from the ‘Wallace and Gromit’ films and a true supporter of independent filmmakers. Charles Haine joins us for an update from the Cine Gear Expo—including Panasonic's EVA1—and more gear news. In Ask No Film School, Elise McCave from Kickstarter shares some do's and don'ts for crowdfunding 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, and other notable things you might have missed while you were busy making films.
