Jon Fusco, Erik Luers, and yours truly, Liz Nord share loads of news from the 71st Cannes Film Festival, including the year's biggest acquisitions, what caused Agnes Varda and Ava DuVernay to team up, and Spike Lee’s Oscar contender.
Charles Haine joins us for gear news, including why a company known for monitors might be making your next camera. Charles also answers an Ask No Film School question about the best cloud storage for video editing.
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.
