Not alone!

This is more than just a behind the screen look at movies. Frank also discusses the growth of his business and employee relations. Wow, so helpful! I work in a different industry but also employee artists ( and maybe still consider myself one). It’s so great to hear that I am not alone and that there are others out there struggling with similar issues and succeeding

Great Material!

As the Owner and Artist at Khabs Am Pekht Kreations (unapologetic plug for myself😅: @khabsampekhtart on IG & FB), this podcast has helped me grow tremendously.

Starting a business without prior experience is legit like fumbling around in the dark and hoping you don’t bump into anything sharp unprepared. But listening to Frank and the myriad of insightful guests that he and Len bring onto the show has helped enlighten a lot of the sharp things you run into, and has made me think about things I wouldn’t have thought about, even despite being enrolled in as a business major in college to help with my art gig.

Awesome podcast. Thanks for making it happen Frank and Len. Will be putting into the tip jar as soon as my income is sufficient haha!

Great film industry podcast

This podcast is not just for special makeup effects or monsters. This podcast discusses the ins and outs of running a business, dealing with practical effects and other industry professionals.

The interviews and history from the artists on the shows is fantastic. Can't wait for the next episode. I currently have this podcast on repeat during my daily drive
