Fix the server issues!!
I really want to give this a 5 stars, but I can't download some of the issues I purchased. It downloads for 10 min with little progress and then gives me an error that the server is busy. Then I have to start all over but it hangs every time. I was able to download most of two of the issues, but that's after babysitting the app and u pausing the download every time it pauses itself. I love the content of the magazines and Jeffs q&as are incredible! But trying to get the magazine to download is nothing but frustration.
An insiders look at the industry and the art...
If you ever get the chance to listen to Q&A with Jeff Goldsmith podcast, then you know this magazine is a must subscribe. Great together and worth every minute. So happy right now. Christmas seems to have come early.
More great material
Supplementing my subscription to American Cinematographer and the wide range of great podcasts including The Q&A with Jeff Goldsmith, Backstory is a great new addition to my source of knowledge about the making of movies. I find the sources vital in pursuing my career as a filmmaker.
