From a different type of director

Amazing show that I have recommended to several of my students who want to go into filmmaking.

I am not in the filmmaking community, but I am a band director and stills photographer who very much enjoys the industry.

These guys are entertaining, dynamic, and enthusiastic about sharing their directing experiences with this community. They choose relevant guests and include just the right amount of sarcasm (wooo).

I also thoroughly enjoy unpaid endorsements!

Thank you guys for all you do.

A Filmmaker’s Journey Worth Following

I started listening to these guys back in 2016. It was their 50th episode entitled “A Tale of Two Orens.” Six years later, they’re well over 300 episodes and I’m still listening. It’s a podcast for erstwhile filmmakers hungry to “make it.” The ironic beauty of this successful podcast is that Matt

Constantly Valuable

I think I’ve listened to at least 50 episodes and I find value in everyone. There are so many tips and pieces of inside knowledge that you probably can’t get anywhere else when it comes to commercial directing. On a programming note I love the flow that comes with each episode. A lot of film podcasts have a way getting way off topic and it eats away at the run time. This duo are like ying and yang they balance each other out so well and usually spotlight both sides of the coin with each topic. thank you Oren and Matt for this show.
