Start with Episode 005

"Laziness is disguised as fear..."
"Don't get it perfect, just get it going."

I think this episode encapsulates the mentality for this entire podcast.
Part motivation, part application, and all wisdom, Angela knows what it takes to be an independent filmmaker.
She knows the mentality required to execute, and she has a gift at explaining it in a genuine tone without pretentiousness of other podcasts.
Do yourself a favor and subscribe, and get into the mindset to execute your vision and make content that matters to the world.
Thanks for doing this Angela.
