11 Great Podcasts from Indie Film NYC

By  | 

If you’re on our site, it’s a good chance you’re looking for more information on independent filmmaking.

A great way to get that information is to listen to The Indie Film NYC Podcast.

And be sure to visit our Podcast Page for all the episode show notes.

Here at – we say that we’re looking to Merge the Art & Business of Independent Filmmaking.
How we will accomplish that is by providing visitors to the site with information that they need to get out there and get their projects from the writing stage through distribution. Whether that’s some information on our most preferred screenwriting books, a blog post on how to light a scene or capture clean onset audio, or delving into the myriad of options for the filmmaker who wants to self-distribute their own projects.

In addition, listeners to the podcast will hear real world experiences from filmmakers of all skill levels who are working outside of the traditional Hollywood model. These shared experiences will hope to serve as an organic “master class” with what it really takes to get out there and put the work in to get your project produced and distributed. Because all of us are forging new ground in independent story telling, you will hear the real truth on what worked and what didn’t. I personally had a failed crowdfunding campaign, but through that failure, I was able to take away some pretty big lessons that have helped me shape how I moved ahead after the failure, and how I was able to use that experience to help other people crowdfund their projects.

We hope you’ll participate by sharing your stories and being a part of the conversation. If you’ve got a perspective to share, something you think would benefit the filmmaking community, or if you want to share an exciting new project, please email me at [or add us on twitter @IndieFilmNYC] and we can discuss a way to incorporate your voice into the conversation through an interview, a post or a twitter shout out.

Our hope is that, armed with the emerging tools of digital distribution, we can put the focus back on the artistry of filmmaking and be a part of the next wave of cinema.
