Creating the Community

Welcome back for another week of Cinematic Immunity. We hope all of you had a fun filled, safe weekend and that you are ready for another great episode.  Before we get into that, I would like to take a few minutes to talk about the business of freelancing in the world of film.

People that work in the entertainment business take a lot of time and effort to do that work.  Not only are the days of production long and the efforts of the people that make movies tireless, but the legwork that it can take to get those jobs is almost a job in it's own. 

When all of this work is said and done, it's important to remember to take care of the important things in life.  Take the necessary time for your friends, your family (sometimes they are one in the same) and yourself.  Sometimes we can get so caught up in the world of the production that we can lose track of how little time we actually have to take care of some of the most important things in life.

This last week, Bryan and I have spent a considerable amount of time in hospitals with ailing loved ones. I am reminded again of the importance of stepping back from our long days to take care of ourselves and each other. Life changes fast and keeping up with our loved ones can sometimes take a back seat. Just remember that in the end, when we need it the most, all that we have is each other.

This Week

We dig into the world of the film festival circuit and the changing landscape of the industry with Film Festival Director Kimberley Browning. Kimberley has been running Hollywood Shorts  for 18 years.  Hollywood Shorts is a festival series that has given many young film makers a chance to have their works viewed and supported.  But not only does she run this festival series but she has screened and supported programming for nearly every major festival in America.

With this many years screening independent films for her festival as well as nearly all of the major festivals in America, she has a plethora of knowledge about what festivals are looking for, what the steps are in submitting your film to these festivals and what to do when you are accepted.  Check back into our episodes page, or on iTunes on Thursday to listen to our latest episode on the world of the film festival.
