Incredible insight

Rob does such a good job on so many levels. I’m a full time film-maker and his podcasts at immense value to me on the business side of things as well as overall creative approaches.

Keep it man, and I would love to hear more about finding gigs and marketing concepts for freelancers.

A Valuable Resource for Filmakers

I really enjoy this podcast as an “aspiring” filmmaker. This podcast's content is always bringing me value and have I really enjoyed all of the guests. I’m making the transition from filming real estate videos to Docs and Films and this podcast helps in opening me up into a world of possibilities. Thanks and keep up the great work.

Impressive!

I don’t usually write reviews but I couldn’t resist. To any artist out there, I highly recommended studying and implementing the advice on this podcast into your daily life. I’ve been working in the entertainment industry for almost 20 years and live by most, if not all of the things being discussed here.

Great job to the creator for taking the time to focus on the most important aspects of the artistic journey. It’s not the easiest life and it’s great to see such a rich and honest resource for people to learn from that may be going through the struggle.

Keep up the great work!
