This Conference is Being Recorded: Discussions on Workbook Project

Late last year Lance Weiler (Head Trauma, The Last Broadcast) started the Workbook Project, a web resource for, by, and about filmmakers. Weiler calls it a “social open source experiment” because anyone can contribute to it. Among the more interesting things Lance has been doing for the Project is a series of conference podcasts.

Lance recently asked me to participate in one of these conferences with him and Mark Stolaroff, LA-based producer and founder of the No-Budget Film School. That conversation has just been posted.

You can listen to it here.

I hope you take something away from it. I certainly enjoyed discussing do-it-yourself issues with Mark and Lance, both of whom have a lot to offer on the subject.

And while you’re visiting the Workbook Project, check out the other great conversations that Lance has offered up:

Eric Bassett, concerning the DIY release of David Lynch’s Inland Empire

Susan Buice and Arin Crumley of Four Eyed Monsters

Robert Greenwald of Brave New Films (Outfoxed, Walmart: The High Cost of Low Price)

Tommy Palotta (animator of Waking Life, A Scanner Darkly)

Scott Kirsner, author of “The Future of Web Video”

Ted Sarandos, Chief Content Officer of Netlfix

Matt Hanson, creator of the web film project A Swarm of Angels

    Stephen and TomQ – Glad you guys enjoyed it.

    Jon – “Harrill addiction”… This is probably the weirdest combination of two words I’ve read in quite some time. Can someone out there stage an intervention for this guy?! ;)
