    Friends From Film School Podcast EP 56:   Classic Movie Night: Mad Max (1979)  

    Before he became the Road Warrior, entered the Thunder Dome, or traveled the Fury Road, there was a man named Max who went mad. This week on the Friends From Film School Podcast, we host another classic movie night and discuss the 1979 Aussie classic, Mad Max. Directed by George Miller and starring a young Mel Gibson, Mad Max tells the story of a Main Force Patrol officer, who launches a personal vendetta against the gang when his wife (Joanne Samuel) and son are hunted down and murdered, leaving him with nothing but the instincts for survival and retribution. Luke, Brad, and Ellis discuss the story beats of the film, share the crazy behind the scenes stories of this low budget production, and ultimately decide if this post-apocalyptic action film still holds up. So buckle in and join us in this high speed episode of FFFS!

    Are Rom-Coms More Than Just "Chick Flicks?"

    Love is in the air in anticipation for Valentine's Day and this week on the Friends From Film School Podcast, Luke, Brad, and Ellis tackle the question - "Are Romantic Comedies More Than Just "Chick Flicks?" We share our love for the genre and breakdown a few Sci-Fi infused Romantic Comedies that are more than meets the eye. These movies all deal with time travel. Luke gives us a breakdown of the film, "Groundhog Day" (1993). Brad shares his thoughts on the 2013 film "About Time," and Ellis gives a report on the newest member of the time loop movie family, last year's "Palm Springs." So get ready to relive romantic moments like you've never done before. We're talking Rom Coms!

    Friends From Film School Podcast EP 54:   Are Practical Effects Better than CGI?  

    This week on the Friends From Film School Podcast, Luke, Brad, and Ellis debate our next filmmaking topic - "Are practical effects better than CGI?" Ellis shares some of the differences between the the practical effects used in the Lord of the Rings trilogy and the CGI used in the Hobbit. Luke elaborates on the differences of CGI vs. practicals in Christopher Nolan's "Interstellar" and Alfonso Cuaron's "Gravity". And Brad shares the tale of the 2011 "The Thing" filming with real practical effects, but replacing them with CGI in a last minute studio revision.  So get ready to listen and find out our conclusion to which is better - CGI or practical effects?

    EP 53: One Shot Movies - Gimmick or Art Form?

    Friends From Film School Podcast EP 53:  One Shot Movies - Gimmick or Art Form?

    After a short break from the show that was beyond our control, which is explained in the episode, Luke, Brad, and Ellis are back inside the studio and ready to tackle a new filmmaking topic - "Are one shot movies gimmicks or a legit art form?" We dive deep into the history of the "Oner" and how filmmakers such as Hitchcock, Kubrick, and Spielberg, to name a few, have all used the technique. Plus we discuss two recent one shot movies that received critical acclaim, Alejandro G. Iñárritu's Birdman and Sam Mendes' 1917 as well as an impressive oner from the Showtime series Kidding. Listen and find out our conclusion to whether or not the one shot is a gimmick or art!
