A totally stellar podcast.

This is film school for the folks that missed lectures and asked a buddy to take notes. Great interviews and always entertaining.
As a filmmaker I find this podcast an essential tool to my progression in the industry. The insight I’ve gleaned from listening to the show has spurred me on and stories of woe advised me of pitfalls.

Informative and fun

If you are interested in the art and craft of visual storytelling in any way then this podcast is for you.

The interviews are very enlightening, I find learning about movies from a screenwriter’s perspective offers an often unheard angle. Well done for shedding light on something that many just take for granted.

A lot to improve

As much as I love listening to writers talk about what they do, this podcast annoys me a bit...

Jeff Goldsmith asks the same questions, no matter who he’s interviewing. Sometimes he has interviewed the person before, but still asks the same questions he did 2 years ago.

His determination to stick to he same questions even interrupts the flow of thought of his interviewees and can drift them away from an interest response.

Also, the ads fro Backstory are super long. We get it, you have a magazine, but do you need to talk about it for that long? And in the middle of the interview?

I recommend this podcast for anyone interested in cinema. I think there’s no better insight into the writing process. But I would also recommend Jeff Goldsmith to reconsider his advertising methods and maybe think a bit about interview techniques.
