    This is How One Man Created a Thriving Indie Production Company with Hope

    This is How One Man Created a Thriving Indie Production Company with Hope

    It seems improbable or impossible to the more seasoned (or jaded) among us. A man, outside of the system and outside of the major cities like New York and LA, built a thriving indie production company with a full growing slate of movies and content... but that's not even the crazy part.

    The crazy part is that the stories he's telling reflect his worldview, and a specific vision for humanity and the future. It sounds as bold as it sounds unlikely. Yet it is a reality.

    BK's story is not just one of perseverance and making your own success, but it's a story of the type of self-education we love at No Film School.

    It all sounds great... but how come it actually works? Listen to BK tell you in his own words.

    What Will Creatives Do About Apple's Big News?

    Apple changes everything (again) and forces a decision for every filmmaker...and, no, it's not whether to use the handwashing feature in the watchOS. Plus, we pay tribute to legendary (and dividing) filmmaker Joel Schumacher and we answer an Ask No Film School question that pits an episodic approach vs. tackling an indie feature.

    6.19.20: The Dinosaurs Are Going Back to Set, But Not The Writers

    This week's theme is how Dinosaurs will adjust to the new world. It's woven into a few of our topics. In addition to talking about Chris Pratt and his open invitation to discuss pizza with us on the podcast, we cover updates from Mac, Adobe's maybe intentional leak of Canon specs, and of course the news that writers are being mistreated by Hollywood. But is that really news?

    Today is Friday, June 12th, which is the date given by Governor Gavin Newsom for film and television productions to (possibly) restart in the state of California. But with potential spikes and the need to implement safe sets, what else needs to be in place in order to safely jump back into work?

Head on in to get your greens!
