My Favorite Filmmaking Podcast!
I'm not much of a horror fan, but I am a cinephile, and I love that this podcast goes in depth with filmmakers. I've learned a lot about the indie horror filmmaker scene, love the anecdotes from this unique perspective, and the lightning round is my favorite! Keep up the good work, Eric and Rene!
Fun interviews for the discerning horror fan.
Full disclosure: the host's my friend. But I'm so proud of what he's done to carve out a niche in the oft-crowded horror podcast field. If you're looking for a deeper dive and a break from the norm, this is it!
My favorite podcast!
Probably won't believe me when I say I'm not associated with the podcast or its creators(except for being a huge fan), but I can promise you that this podcast is absolutely fantastic.
As a filmmaker/screenwriter, I've found all the interviews to be fun and inspirational!
New goal - make good enough films to get on this podcast ;)
