Halloween Spooktacular II: Advice for the Aspiring Horror Auteur [PODCAST]
This episode of Indie Film Weekly reveals our best horror filmmaking tips and the lens that's so good it's scary.
Jon Fusco, Charles Haine and yours truly, Liz Nord get in the mood for Halloween by sharing some of No Film School's best horror filmmaking tips from the likes of Jeremy Saulnier and Rob Zombie. We discuss a lens so good that it got its own Emmy (plus this year's other Engineering Emmy winners) and why there's an uncertain future for Amazon Studios. We also say a sad goodbye to Oscar-winning cinematographer Walter Lassally. Gear news includes Sony's 42 megapixel beast, the a7R III, and Charles answers Liz's Ask No Film School question about migrating a project from FCP6 to Premiere.
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.
