Major Changes Coming To Awards Season & When Should You Shoot Anamorphic? [PODCAST]
This episode of Indie Film Weekly reveals how indies are overhauling awards season.
Jon Fusco, Charles Haine, and yours truly, Liz Nord discuss the indie films that are changing the face of awards season after the results of the Gothams and the National Board of Review list results were revealed this week. We cover the questionable award categorizations of Jordan Peele’s Get Out and Errol Morris’ Wormwood and why they matter to other filmmakers. We also hear some unconventional lensing advice from rising star DP Katelin Arizmendi and debate the merits of anamorphic. In gear news, we share the results of getting our hands on DJI’s new Zenmuse X7 camera. Charles also answers an Ask No Film School question about how to shoot anamorphic on a still camera.
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.
