Jon Fusco and yours truly, Liz Nord are headed to Park City, Utah for the 34th Sundance Film Festival. We are joined by NFS Managing Editor Erik Luers on this episode, and together we share everything you should know to get ready for the big event, whether you’ll be there in person or not. In gear news, Kodak makes a big gamble on a new version of old tech and in Ask No Film School, Charles Haine reveals the most useful film production apps on the market. 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.
