    Episode 46: Summer Vacation Special 2018

    On episode 46 Sean and Nicole focus on 4MileCircus news you can use before going on a summer hiatus. We talk about the world premiere of 4MileCircus’s first feature-length film Meme at the Art of Brooklyn Film Festival, where it won Outstanding Narrative Feature Film! We also discuss the NYC premiere of our short film Sanctuary at IndieWorks’ annual Pride screening, where it won the Audience Choice award; the upcoming premiere of our surreal short Rubber Ducky; and the status of our next horror short, It’s Normal and what we’ll be working on over our summer podcasting break.

    We conclude with the Q&A from Meme’s premiere screening featuring Writer/Director Sean Mannion, Producer Carolyn Maher, DP Peter Westervelt and star Sarah Schoofs discussing what prompted children to yell “f**k your movie”, among other behind-the-scenes gems.

    We’ll be back in the fall! Have a great summer and see you then!

    4MinuteCircus: Bonnie Trivia with Lisbeth Kauffman

    KitSplit CEO Lisbeth Kauffman joins Nicole in a game of Uncle Sean's Bonnie Trivia. It makes sense that we're playing that. Really. Kind of.

    For more with Lisbeth, check out episode 45 on which we discuss how and why KitSplit got started, what it means to be "the Air BnB of cameras" and why women should brag more.

    4MinuteCircus: Bookmark Pamphlet Trivia with Lisbeth Kauffman

    Join Nicole and KitSplit CEO Lisbeth Kauffman in a confusing game of Uncle Sean's Bookmark Pamphlet trivia. Yup, that's trivia about a pamphlet Sean was using as a bookmark. It's more entertaining and relevant than it may sound!

    On our 45th trip to The Circus, Sean and Nicole talk to Lisbeth Kauffman, Co-Founder and CEO of Kitsplit, the “Air BnB of cameras” which connects visual storytellers to individuals and production companies looking to rent out their gear. We talk to Lisbeth about how Kitsplit started, building community as indie filmmakers, growing up on set with Troma, and why women should brag more. We conclude with a #rare couple rounds of Uncle Sean’s The NewlyMet Game, in which Nicole and Lisbeth try to guess each other’s first horror movie, favorite Muppet, and more!
