Terrific insight as to how films are made

As someone who is interested in filmmaking these podcasts give you great insight as to how films really get made. The interviews are by people who work in the trenches of film production. The average person has no idea how much work and skill it takes to make a film they are watching. Brandon Riley has given us a great opportunity to peak behind the curtain to watch masters who practice their craft, learned over many decades. I love listening to these podcast and learn from every one of them. Well done, Brandon! Thank you!
