Love Going Behind-the-Scenes with Laura!

I met Laura at Sundance and we ended up going to Cannes together so you could say I am a super fan of her show! Since we are both in the entertainment biz, we have so many of the same passions and we became fast friends. Just as sweet and knowledgeable in person as she is on this podcast. Love Laura and all her shows! Check out her other podcasts too!

Great insights with Maureen Hufnagel

Been following this podcast for a while but particularly enjoyed the most recent episode with Maureen Hufnagel. Hearing her talk about how she took her agency experience and applied it to directing is a fascinating perspective, and while I also have some previous art direction experience, I enjoyed her talking about it from a more global perspective. Great listen!

Inspiring Podcast with Down to Earth Host

Loved the episode recording with 1stAveMachine director Karim Zariffa, it was really fun and casual! Happy to see a commercial director, especially one with a design background, finally get a voice in a conversation about the entertainment industry!
