Great podcasts. Just as great, fun, educational as your channel. Discovered your YouTube early last year. You always give thoughtful movie/tv reviews with your sense of humor which delivers your message for your passion in what your currently in pre production on. Great job with the podcast. Love the insights from some great filmmakers. Speaking of…. Can’t wait for Shelby Oaks 😀
As someone who’s watched Chris for years on YouTube with his movie review channel, I’ve loved to see him now live out his dream as a filmmaker. As an aspiring filmmaker myself, this podcast is exactly the source of inspiration I’ve been looking for. Could not recommend this podcast enough!
