How to Make Your Old Footage Look Great & Cash in With Kickstarter's Answer to Patreon [PODCAST]
This episode of Indie Film Weekly covers Kickstarter's bold new move for filmmakers, the best way to up-res from VHS, and America's most important doc fest.
Jon Fusco and yours truly, Liz Nord discuss Drip, Kickstarter's answer to Patreon, plus a field report from DOC NYC that reveals why it's become the American documentary festival to pay attention to. We also cover the first Oscars handed out this year, marvel at Agnes Varda's infinite wisdom, and say farewell to Oscar-winning filmmaker Debra Chasnoff, who died last week.
Charles Haine joins us for gear news, including the new Lumix G9 from Panasonic, and answers an Ask No Film School question about the best way to up-res VHS footage.
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.
