My favorite podcast

As a cinematographer this podcast is a wealth of knowledge and wisdom. I listen to every episode and sometimes listen to an episode 2-3 times! Ben Consoli and Connor Crosby have crafted an amazing podcast that inspires and educated me to be a better filmmaker.

Inspiring, informative, entertaining

I don’t know of any other podcast or place for this kind of behind the scenes information where you get such wonderful technical insight on how a show/movie is filmed. Sure you can subscribe to American Cinematographer, but Ben grounds his interviews with A-List DPs and filmmakers on a human level that makes you feel like anything is possible and you too can make your dreams come true.

This podcast covers all aspects of cinematography from the technical details of camera, lenses, lighting, blocking… to the lifestyle and relationship side of what its really like dedicating part of your life to a film.

If you’re a filmmaker or aspiring filmmaker I can’t recommend the Go Creative Show enough. I’ve been DPing for 10+ years and am always excited to listen to the next episode because I know I will learn something new. And better yet…be inspired for my next project knowing I have a new trick or two up my sleeve.

Thanks Ben for all of your dedication to this show and love for the movie making process.

Action!

Great Show! Film Student Perspective

This show has been instrumental in furthering my education as to what it’s like to be working on a modern Film Set as a DP! Having just graduated Film School, this show has been ON IT! The Cinematographers who come on to the show are working on some of the biggest Films of the year including the Oscar winning Greg Fraser, who shot Dune! The Host, Ben Consoli is awesome and asks ALL the question we want to hear about how specific scenes were shot even down to the specific camera and lens package that they chose with the director. I’m trying to break into commercial and narrative film as a freelancer right now and this show has helped to steer me in the right direction! S/O Dallas!
