What is Film Sense? It's a Podcast Documentary Series About Filmmaking In Uncertain Times.

For many filmmakers, the 21st century marked the end of cinema as we knew it. Gone were the methods behind the madness of Hollywood. New technologies created uncertainty as well as promise. Traditional sources of financing and distribution had dried up, especially for independent filmmakers and the “middle class” of Hollywood. Film Sense will explore the changing terrain of filmmaking as art and as a business. Through discussions with other amateur professionals, we will share our experiences and hopefully make “sense” of what the future holds.
