Guests will share insights on their key contribution to creative departments such as cinematography, casting, VFX, production design and editing. Listeners will benefit from a detailed information exchange about the art and science behind moviemaking.

Among the episodes rolling out during Season 1 (and running through late November), we will chat to up-and-coming LA based Cinematographer Alonso Homs (pictured above, left) as well as Dogwoof CEO, Anna Godas (pictured, center), as she talks to Variety International Editor, Manori Ravindran, (pictured right), about the current market for documentaries.
