10 Filmmaking and Screenwriting Podcasts We Love
We love podcasts in general, but we particularly love ones that focus on filmmaking and screenwriting. Listening to them is an awesome way to pick up technical advice, keep up with industry news, and also normalize the experience of becoming a professional by listening to how it’s been done before.
The following are some the filmmaking and screenwriting podcasts that we can’t get enough of!
