The Best Way to Choose an Anamorphic Lens & Who Rules the Indie Box Office? [PODCAST]
This episode of Indie Film Weekly reveals the best anamorphic lens test we've ever seen and ponders the future of indie stalwart Fox Searchlight.
Jon Fusco, Charles Haine, and yours truly, Liz Nord discuss how one actor is proving that Hollywood really can change how it does casting, the changing times for Fox Searchlight and what they mean for indie filmmakers, and a sad goodbye to influential horror director Tobe Hooper.
In gear news, we discuss ShareGrid's comprehensive new anamorphic lens test, and Charles answers an Ask No Film School question about how to best pull off a multi-user workflow in post-production.
As always, the show also brings news you can use about gear, upcoming grant and festival deadlines, this week’s indie film releases, industry wisdom, and other notable things you might have missed while you were busy making films.
