MMIH is becoming one of my favourite podcasts!

Tim and Alrik have a great podcast here. They are very skilled filmmakers in their own right, but don't at all come across as guys that know it all. It's the main strength of the podcast. Too many filmmaking podcasts come off as preachy and even condescending, not MMIH. They are straight shooters and they both display a very humble attitude towards their filmmaking careers. It's very refreshing. Long time listener, first time reviewer.

Honest and knowledgable

These guys analyze and dissect the world of indie filmmaking from the inside out. They are in the trenches and they speak of their experiences, triumphs, and tribulations with an
Emotional honesty that is refreshing to hear and easily understood by any struggling artist. They speak about all aspects of the craft intelligently both seeking answers and supplying them as filmmakers doing their best to make it happen. Awesome.

Real filmmakers sharing their struggles…. awesome!

This is my favourite podcast to date because the hosts discuss the real struggles of indie filmmaking and how they confront the many challenges faced. They don’t hold back and they're not pretentious or conceited (which seems to plague the industry unfortunately)…and that’s the charm. Keep it up guys! I look forward to every single episode.
