Making movies is actually hard

I’m thankful that this show exists, it’s a great place to hear people discussing roadblocks that maybe you yourself have gone through, see coming, or maybe even more importantly don’t see coming. The community here is great and I basically love everything about it. Excited to hear the format keep evolving, and to hear updates as Alrik enters production on his feature The Alternate.

Fun new format, same great show

Love this podcast, and love the recently increased diversity of hosts and guests. So often filmmaking podcasts are just two white, straight bros chatting about making movies (though I enjoy & listen to a ton of those too!). I miss Timothy, but the new format means we get to hear from a variety of filmmakers with diverse backgrounds, both interviewed & interviewing (alongside our intrepid host, Alrik). Remains one of my favorite filmmaking podcasts to have on rotation.

Just keeps getting better!

I love the Alrik & Timothy podcasts, but Alrik has bumped it up a few notches with his mix of guest-host-casters! These episodes bring a whole new energy to the podcast, providing an entertaining variety of color, depth, and experience. Also, listening to the expertise of the podcast guests, who knew how much goes in to this stuff...the animation, the cartoon show, the launching of a streaming platform... Incredible how hard people work on these projects. Truly inspiring!
