Hidden Gem

I’m so happy I found this show. I’m a bit of a film buff and have always been interested in behind-the-scenes. Go Creative Show is perfect for me. I feel like I’m learning so much about the film industry... even though I can barely take a picture let alone make a movie. The podcast gets technical sometimes, but the host keeps it conversational and casual enough for pros and enthusiasts alike.
