The Cinematography Podcast is the program about the art, craft and philosophy of the moving image and the people who make it happen. Your job title doesn't have to be cinematographer to be featured on the show. We interview a wide variety of filmmakers including, actors, directors, producers, production designers, editors, storyboard artists and those in related filmmaking careers. This is not a film school, more like a professionally produced radio program found on NPR, each episode brings an interesting perspective to an often overlooked and widely misunderstood craft. Recorded in Hollywood, California at the world headquarters of Hot Rod Cameras. Hosted by Ben Rock and Illya Friedman.

The Anatomy of Production
Although the title suggests a focus on the Cinematographer, this podcast is really a great resource for anyone who wants to know the ins and outs of production on just about every level. The lessons of how to work within a production unit and different personality types you will find there are invaluable. I would recommend this podcast for anyone wanting to get a project done or just simply looking for a way into the business of show business.
You don't have to know how to operate a Canon 7D to enjoy it.
A good conversation is one that can be listened to and/or joined by anyone with a reasonable level of intelligence. Whether you are a Film and Video professional, or just someone interested in the Cinematic creative process, you will enjoy this podcast. It stays away from the technical end of the process and has plenty of on set stories that can be understood, whether you work in the entertainment industry or not (And if you still don't know what a Gaffer or Best Boy is, Google and Bing are your friends). Recommended.
What an incredible podcast. It is so refreshing to hear about the theory and aesthetics of shooting, framing, lighting etc without getting to mired in tech talk (although I enjoy that as well.) If future shows are half as good as this one, this will be a fantastic show! Keep it up.
