listen faithfully, learn a lot
Long time listener here. You guys have chatted in my earbuds during many a long run, car ride, hike and -- yes, it's true -- while mowing. Loved the format plenty in your pre-Vomit Draft days and maybe even moreso now. With each episode, I garner new insight, feel "nudged" to do things in my craft better and, invariably, hunch over laughing. Still reeling from the asparagus bit .. and that was weeks ago! Keep up the stellar work, gentlemen! I, for one, appreciate your positivity and willingness to help so many of us unknown scribes out here filling notebooks and cutting loose on our laptops. Thanks for doing what you do to make us feel welcome and keep us aspiring..........
Incredibly Informative and Educational
The broken projector podcast is a fantastic podcast series which explores the world of film and the mindset behind why we even make films. I myself am in film school and as much as I learn from classes, there is very much that I miss out about real life skills and techniques that are in the industry. This podcast brings in people who work within the industry and provide intellectual discussions on a variety of topics. The vomit draft is also a very beneficial support to those who write screenplays and how to really write them with passion. Again an excellent series that should be listened to any aspiring filmmaker.
Good but smelly
Scott and Geoff are incredibly insightful and funny. Five seconds into my first episode I was compelled to slap that subscribe button. Now I'm three episodes deep and could not be more impressed by their knowledge and conciseness. My only gripe is that they both smell. I know that podcasting is an exclusively auditory medium but, like... you can tell. Keep it up, fellas!
