This episode of Indie Film Weekly also reveals the keys to a successful Super Bowl ad pitch.
Jon Fusco, Erik Luers, and yours truly, Liz Nord discuss why the Kill Bill car crash story matters for every filmmaker, how to create a winning Super Bowl ad, and the results of the recent DGA Awards. Liz also answers an Ask No Film School question about what to do if you think you don't fit in at film school. Charles Haine joins us for a huge week in gear announcements, including ARRI’s new 4K Alexa LF.
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.
