Why You Should Go to Film School & How to Rent Your Gear for Profit [PODCAST]
This episode of Indie Film Weekly weighs the benefits of film school against its rising cost, and debates the merits of renting out your own gear.
Jon Fusco, Charles Haine, and yours truly, Liz Nord share some fun facts about the crossover between TV directors and the year's biggest films, say a (possibly temporary) farewell to one of the world's greatest actors, and discuss whether or not Apple is finally a serious contender in the original content game with its latest hires. We also discuss the Canon and Sony summer gear rumors, and hear from Wonder Woman DP Matt Jensen about the differences between shooting for action and drama.
As always, the show also brings news you can use about gear, upcoming grant and festival deadlines, this week’s indie film releases, words of wisdom from No Film School, and other notable things you might have missed while you were busy making films.
