Jon Fusco and yours truly, Liz Nord discuss a new finding on the average length of Oscar-winning short films and what it means for you, which digital companies may be replacing the Hollywood studio system once and for all, and why some audiences in Asia may be missing out on the most popular indie films. In tech and gear news, we get in the mood for NAB with some filmmaker-friendly updates from Adobe and more. Filmmaker and editor Josh Granger joins us to answer an Ask No Film School question about using multiple nested timelines in Premiere Pro.

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.
