The Film Look

The Film Look

By The Film Look
A weekly filmmaking Podcast dedicated to figuring out how movies achieve "the film look". We have "News & Views": a segment discussing new equipment and filmmaking videos, "You Haven't Seen That!?": where we dissect the filmmaking properties of triumphant movies we have yet to see (there's a lot, we haven't seen a lot of great films!). We do weekly film trivia challenges and a Q&A segment for filmmakers and film lovers with queries and comments.
