This episode of Indie Film Weekly recommends how to find your perfect camera.
Jon Fusco, Erik Luers, Charles Haine, and yours truly, Liz Nord discuss how the extension of California’s Production Tax Credits is affecting the film and TV business, and the fate of Supersize Me 2 in the wake of director Morgan Spurlock’s sexual assault accusations. We also say a sad goodbye to the journalists killed last week at the Capital Gazette newspaper. In gear news, we geek out about 10Gb ethernet. Charles answers an Ask No Film School question about how to find your perfect camera and the best way to invest your gear budget.
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.
