Fantastic deep dives in creative approach. Really makes you appreciate the level of art and effort that goes into making something look great.
Great for the info, hard to listen to
I so appreciate all of the information I learn from this podcast. However, the sound mix is terrible. It sounds like they’re recording in an empty marble room and, for example, there is no regulation between soft speaking and loud laughter. You’ll turn up the volume to hear more subdued speech, to then be assaulted by laughter or someone leaning closer to the mic.
Great guest and information. A must listen for film fans
