Customer Reviews

Caz Gaddis ,

Les keeps it reel & helps you uplevel your filmIQ

I've been listening since Day 1 and love how Les doesn't look at filmmaking as per the equipment being used, rather he focuses on the ways we can master the equipment we have on hand. His guests are diverse and insightful. His shownotes are very detailed and really support your growth in knowledge that you can then put into action.

Jay Dyer ,

Very informative

This pod cast, hosted by Les Gaddis, is an inspiring pod cast directed toward filmmakers on various levels. His content is molded for Cinematographers in the business, covering lighting, lens and working DPs in the industry (guest). Listen, learn, laugh, love, and enjoy. I stand by that.

Hall Family Films ,

Really great content in a laid back way

All the content is helpful and informative, in a laid back way that is almost relaxing to listen to. Keep it up!
