Creative Inspiration Through Podcasts

On 08, Jul 2013 | No Comments | In Low Budget Filmmaking | By vashi

Often when I’m doing paperwork, logging footage, color grading or locating the source of weird smells in my studio (cats leaving “presents”)…I will listen to a podcast. There are so many amazingly informative and colorful characters on the interwebz that put out wonderful content on a weekly basis. For me it’s much more than a distraction or a need to be entertained. By listening to passionate, intelligent and humorous people discuss topics they enjoy, I learn by osmosis and find out things I would never have thought to search out for myself.
