This episode of Indie Film Weekly also welcomes the Academy's biggest and broadest new class in history.
Jon Fusco, Erik Luers, Charles Haine, and yours truly, Liz Nord discuss how Instagram’s new IGTV service prompted YouTube to give more benefits to video creators, and other news from the massive VidCon event. We also cover the largest addition to the Academy of Motion Pictures ever, and yet another new addition to the movie theater subscription service arena. In gear news, Charles shares some exciting news in the post-production space. We also answers an Ask No Film School question about fair use, and when you can (or can’t) use news clips in your movie.
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.
