The Future

Before I said the show would be coming back in February. Well, I’m a liar. The hiatus is going to be a little bit longer. I am not anticipating posting any new interviews until at least June.

Please share the videos with your friends in the meantime. All these filmmakers are awesome and deserve your attention.

And just in case you think I’m not working on the show at all: I interviewed Emilie McDonald just yesterday. I have plans for other filmmakers. If you’re a New York-based filmmaker and you want to be on the show, there is no shame in self-promotion and making my job easier by just emailing me and saying you want to be on the show. Multiple filmmakers have. They’re the cool kids. You want to be a cool kid, don’t you?

New episodes will be coming in just a few months. Thanks for following.
