My new favourite podcast
This has rapidly become my most anticipated podcast each week for a number of reasons:
- The right balance of gear and creative discussion
- Fantastic guests
- The enthusiasm of Ben
Whilst the focus is on cinematography, it should appeal to anyone with an interest in anything creative - music, photography etc. Even if that side doesn’t appeal, it is a great way to get in depth information about how some of your favourite TV shows (Breaking Bad etc) are made.
Keep up the good work Ben.
This podcast is ideal for keeping up to date with everything happening in the video and filmmaking world. Ben gets a great variety of guests on who always provide a really insightful look into their particular profession. Ben also is such an infectiously enthusiastic host that this show never fails to put a smile on my face during the morning and evening commute.
I work for an independent production in Glasgow (Scotland) and I can't recommend this highly enough for anyone working or interested in video and film production. Keep up the great work!
Running a small video production company can be hard work and listening to this podcast really helps me keep up to date with the latest equipment, news and production ideas/concepts. A really excellent listen!!
