6 Noticeable Podcasts about Filmmaking:
Would you like to find all the important news of the film biz but you are always on set or in your car on the way to and fro set? Maybe your eyes hurt from looking into the viewfinder of your camera all day long, so reading film magazines or blogs is out of the question? Or maybe you are simply super tired but you have trouble falling asleep? Try listening to Podcasts! Podcast are an extremely convenient way of doing two things at the same time. I myself love listening to podcast while I repair, reorganize or tidy up my equipment. Listening to podcast makes dull activities enjoyable and informative. Convinced of giving Podcasts a try but overwhelmed by the sheer mass of film related podcasts out there? Fear not, let me introduce you to some of my favorites today:
1. Filmmakers Drinking Bourbon:
Yes, you got that right. Meet the filmmakers Alex Elkins and Brandon Faris, who like tasting different bourbons and know a lot about equipment. Pour one for yourself and enjoy a night with likeminded spirits. Its basically spirits with spirits! But seriously, if you dig great insights into the film business, interviews with directors, authors and producers as well as solid bourbon recommendations - this is your jam!
