Alicia does it again!

Alicia is the hardest working professional in the biz, and it shows. She’s as expert in her craft but still works three times harder than her peers to be top of the game, time and time again. Her brilliance and charm is evident in everything that she does, this podcast included. And her mission to shed light on all aspects of above and below the line filmmaking is a much needed breath of fresh air in a very challenging industry. No doubt she is inspiring a long line of progressive and thoughtful future filmmakers and critics.

Love

Alicia is a perfect host. She is curious and well researched, and asks a good question and then allows her guests to talk about what they do and why they are passionate about their work. I love hearing about the different types of film work - especially when, as she said, below the line work is so interesting and yet not talked about quite as much as the more profiled jobs. It’s just really fun to hear people who love their work talk about it with someone who is also passionate, smart, and a good listener.
