Great Show About that Covers the Process of Filmmaking

This is a solid show in the filmmaking podcast network. I’ve been listening to Oren and Matt’s podcast along with a select handful of others as I’ve been directing my own first feature the last few years. Very informative. They cover a good array of topics and some great discoveries have been made. In these wild times we’re living in with an onslaught of over information, it’s great to have a few solid staples that deliver great content and episodes on a regular basis. Remember, when all else fails, Just Shoot It! It’s a great call to action.

Existential-... Triumph?

Listening to over 200 episodes over the course of several months, I finally caught up to current events and WOW. Matt and Oren discussing their triumphs and misery so open and honestly, along with their incredibly insightful and sincere guests, makes for an entertaining and supremely educational show that I am so incredibly happy to have found.

I’ve saved a handful of quotes to later be put on T-shirts, but I shall end this review with these 2:

“If you stick it out, your odds are better than 1 in 50” (Oren) and “Steven Spielberg was never a shark.” (Matt)

Every episode has golden nuggets

As an editor I first started with the editor interviews, but as I expanded to the other crafts being explored I discovered there are immensely insightful moments in every single episode. An invaluable tool to navigating this industry.
