The art and craft of movie making;

the stories that define it  

 June 12th, 2014

New episodes released Tuesday mornings to the website, iTunes, Stitcher, and everywhere the RSS feed goes!


 This podcast explores the complex underbelly of how movies are made and what makes them so special. The people that are making movies have a dialogue and this show taps right into it.  They love the craft and think there are far too many good stories that are never heard. Up until now, all you have been offered is the polished version of the Writers, Directors and Actors telling us how “great” everything was.  Instead, they offer these  stories and perspectives from the minds of the entertainment professionals who were there.

Each podcast is a conversation with an industry veteran to get at the stories behind the Hollywood curtain.
