Great insights!

Jeff does a fantastic job of curating films that are worth checking out and then getting great insights into the process of how they are made! Wonderful information for any filmmaker curious about the challenges encountered and overcome (or not) when making an indie! Also just entertaining if you like to find good films!

This is what this industry needs

I'm so happy Jeff has decided to do this. This industry needs more interviews and insight with the scrappy, smaller filmmakers instead of just the big time Sundance winners. This is a great incentive for those filmmakers that are a part of the Film Invasion Film Festival and Sherman oaks film festival. I hope this podcast grows and becomes a big success.
