The Most Popular Rental Gear of 2017 & Is Netflix About to Be Sold? [PODCAST]
This episode of Indie Film Weekly reveals which cameras and gimbals might be your smartest investments for 2018.
Jon Fusco, Charles Haine and yours truly, Liz Nord discuss rumors of a major merger that could change the industry as we know it, and results of the 2017 box office returns. We also say a sad goodbye to Black Swan production designer Thérèse DePrez. In gear news, we reveal the most rented items on ShareGrid last year. Charles also answers an Ask No Film School question about how to choose vintage lenses for your next project.
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.
