Elon Musk Accused of Being an Oligarch

"There are a lot of folks that are very angry right now, very angry that Elon Musk bought the company. You have employees voicing their concerns, they're worried about their future, of course. You've got media companies that are voicing their concerns. They too are worried about their future and how they fit into all this. Let me share with you how The Hollywood Reporter is casting the story. And I quote, Elon Musk is Twitter's new ruler. Interesting choice of words there, ruler. Expect grand plans and chaos ahead, the Tesla mogul doesn't care about making money with the platform. Instead, he gets his chance to play wizard and ban bots authenticate users and create his version of free speech utopia. Again, interesting choice of words, given that they're going with ruler, it's kind of in line with what former U.S. secretary of labor Robert Reich was saying about Elon Musk, accusing him of being an oligarch because he's been so successful. I mean, I find that quite troubling, considering the guy immigrated here to the United States of America created an industry from scratch, taking on, by the way, the auto giants, the oil giants, those industries that someone like Robert Reich, you would think would typically despise, and he became the richest man in the world by doing so. Why? Because that is a testament to what we are as a country. This is America, right? Used to be anyway. And I think Elon Musk gets the sense that increasingly if you do not preserve certain freedoms, including that First Amendment freedom, you run the risk that you won't have the same opportunities in the future.

The Delightful Implosion of CNN+

"I want to talk a little bit more about the delightful implosion of CNN plus. I mean, for me, it's like a kid watching a building come down. You notice how kids love to see a building either explode or implode. It doesn't really matter. It's the destruction that's kind of enjoyable. And obviously, we outgrow those sentiments. And so we don't feel that way when we see a building. But I do feel that way when I see CMM plus implode. And gotten to learn a little bit more about the juicy details behind all this, which are kind of fun to go into. So apparently, when discovery, Discovery Channel took over a CNN. I mean, they knew that CNN sucked. It's not that they thought CNN is great. CNN's fantastic. They were like, this is a problem. And they knew above CNN plus. And they were apparently guided skeptical, but they since they were coming in new. They were reluctant to pull the plug right away. I think their view was, you know what? Let's see how this goes. We'll give it a chance and we will then assess how it's going. And you know, it's worth noting here that these are these kind of major media moguls, this we're talking here about David zaslav, the head of discovery, who became the new boss over at CNN. These guys actually don't know anything. And they've been in the business a long time, but most of their most of their viewpoints are recycled cliches that they pick up from colleagues in the office. And so they launched this massive, multi-million dollar, $300 million, I believe, is what the whole project was to promote CNN plus. Just think about the premise. People, people are so excited by CNN that they want to they'll be willing to pay for more CNN.

What Features of Authoritarian Regimes Exist in America?

"What feature of authoritarian regimes. Can we confidently say does not exist in this country? Let's go through a few. Censorship of an authorized viewpoint. Putin is cracking down on descent, and this of course has been a chorus for many years. Okay, yes, he is doing that. Aren't we cracking down on unauthorized viewpoints in this country? Doesn't the Biden administration work closely with digital moguls to deplatform people, silence them ostracize them? All right, number two. Party line propaganda. Kind of the idea of a one party state, yeah, we've got a one party state in Russia. Don't we have something approaching a one party state in America? Now? Isn't the alternative party treated like a kind of domestic enemy, your domestic terrorists? We have to go after you, your enemies of the state, and the general idea is that only the views of one party, a legitimate, the media, of course, has become a vehicle of virtually state propaganda, pretty much again the same as in Russia. Mass surveillance by the state. That's another kind of signature feature of authoritarian regimes. They spy on their population, they encourage people to spy on each other, call in malefactors, and again, we see that here. We see mass surveillance. We see the FBI putting up. Have you seen this guy? Have you seen that guy turning your uncle turning your parents? Did you see your dad on January 6th, go to Washington, call him in? One of the January 6th trials actually involves the rather disturbing scene of a teenage or 20 something kid who essentially turned in his own father. And ideological indoctrination in schools. Another feature of authoritarian societies, we've got it right here at home. And so this line has now become a little blurred. I'm not saying it's completely erased. I obviously would prefer to live in America than I would in Russia. Or any other authoritarian society, but nevertheless, we feel our liberties being constrained.

"mogul" Discussed on Pop Culture Happy Hour

"To be the man, I wish existed when I was a fan then. I wish existed when I was offending for my family that I won't really understand if the kids will never have to be prouder of the dead and I'm not wanker. I'll puppies for summer. Yeah. My odds for all time. He feels this pressure in this weight to be a role model to be someone that a younger Brown kid can see and identify with and want to be. And I think that that certainly through his advocacy for Muslims, the filmmaking that he aspires to do, that's clearly something that he cares about the human and zed the character. My poppies for summer, my arts for all time. I ain't got roots to put down. I'm pulling the weeds up. Angle, roots to put down, I'm pulling the weeds up. A puppy's just a weed. Well, I'm growing don't need love. You know, it's the struggle to define himself through his art, but also the pressure to be more than just an artist. The pressure to be a figurehead for your community, the pressure to be someone that people can aspire to be like. And I think that that push and pull is really interesting and reflective of who Riz Ahmed is as an artist and as an advocate. Again, you never quite get how that manifests because it's also quite selfish, right? He's struggling with it, but he's also interested in going on tour to be known. And I think that's interesting his manager confronts him at one point and says, you know, you clearly are too sick to go on tour. So this younger also South Asian rapper is going to take your place and zed's really struggling with that. And she sort of reminds him, but you know, he is like us. And he's still going to get the message out. The message being, you know, of course, about identity and claiming a space for south Asians in this medium. Everyone's worried about you, man. Always talking about paving the way for other people. RPG's one of us. He's telling our story too. You can see that he maybe he's not as interested in the message as he portrays himself to be because it becomes about that's his space that someone's taking. And I think that's really interesting and something that's very honest, right? Because if you espouse that it's just about pulling people up and making room for all immigrants or marginalized people to have the spotlight when it's not your turn in the spotlight, how do you react in the face of that? How do you act then? And so that I thought was really interesting to in terms of who might be and revealing perhaps a little bit of his own struggle there. Yeah, that entire dynamic between the zed character and RPG is really interesting. And I love the point that you make about the fact that he's both this person who wants to be the figurehead, but is also very much there's an ego there. You have to have some sort of ego when you are an artist, especially when you are a rapper. That is just part of the game. And it's interesting to me that they made the RPG character kind of silly and he's kind of like this younger rapper who isn't necessarily saying the most interesting or thoughtful things. He's not like a quote unquote conscious rapper, but he's very popular. And he is also representing in a way. And so it's like very interesting to see the way in which you have those different times of both respectability politics going on there and also just generational divide there. And I thought that was really fascinating to see. You know, it's not a new dynamic, the groundbreaker who has to fit a certain mold and then the young upstart behind him who kind of gets to do away with all of those preconceived notions of what you have to be to make it. But it also made me think about and you mentioned it, the kind of dream sequence where he's in a battle in a rap battle where he's wearing the hospital gown and another rapper a black rapper is sort of like having a go at him and then when it's his turn on the mic, he says something about, you know, calling me an immigrant, haven't you seen your own skin pigment? Yo, yo, you're so ignorant, calling me an immigrant. Haven't you seen your old skin pigment? We're shooting it together. Knows he's said something wrong. You're not quite sure he knows exactly how wrong he is. Yes, he's fighting for south Asians to be recognized here. But as you said, it's also taking up space in this black art for him. So that struggle, I thought it was really interesting and I wish we could have spent a little bit more time there too because it is so solipsistic to say like, this is about south Asians and where we can go, but it's not for you to decide who gets to take up space there. Yeah, no, I completely agree. I mean, I think overall, this is a movie that has a lot of ideas and it goes for a lot of complex ways of getting at those ideas. And I don't necessarily think it reaches or achieves all of them or any of them fully. But I think the fact that they all reach a certain height in their own respective ways, to me makes this such an interesting exercise. And this is a result of its first co writing credit for a feature film. And so it makes me want to see more from him, whether it's drawn from his life or not. I think that, to me, the sort of dream like fantastical elements are what makes me so interested in both him and the director besom Tariq because again this could have been such a very straightforward narrative. And I think that that takes it to a different level and we haven't even mentioned there is this character called gulag mien who's played by Jeff Mirza. And this character is kind of like a sort of spirit or figure who haunts his character or follows his character throughout the entire film. And he's dressed in sort of the traditional garb that men wear during wedding ceremonies. And of course, I had to Google that too. Afterwards, as I said earlier, I did find myself Googling, but I did wind up learning a lot after this movie, and I think that's to me something great. And I went afterwards and I read the short story, toba texting by Sadat Hassan manto that was published in 1955 and is referenced throughout the movie. And it just gave me a whole other perspective of what was going on in that film. But I'm curious what you think about that figure who's sort of coming and showing up throughout the film and also just what you thought about the dream like or fantastical elements in general. I mean, a lot of them did work for me because I think it made you feel like you were in this liminal space and the character is obviously in that same space because he can't really move forward with his life. He sort of caught in this in between his illness, his career, his personhood, his history, his relationship, like there's so much unknown for him. And the dream like sequences really help convey that to the viewer and help put you in a similar sort of headspace. And I liked that because it didn't feel like I was just sort of progressing through the story. It was really like, took me down into that headspace with him. And I think that that symbol was so interesting because when he's thinking about fatherhood and whether he can carry on this lineage this paternal history forward, you know, he's confronted by this image of marriage and fertility and family. And so that loaded charge symbol gets at a lot of those questions about his, yeah, his manhood, his ability to procreate his ability to sustain a relationship to sustain a family, but also to understand his own family, I thought was really clever and really interesting. But again, it goes back to your point earlier, which I think is such a such an interesting question for a lot of filmmakers is like, you know, you had to search what that meant and you know why it was important. And so sort of begs the question how much do you explain and how much do you just leave to be interpreted and figured out by the viewer? How much work do you want people to do? It's the eternal question. But again, I hope that people do seek this out because I think that there was enough for me to grasp onto while watching it, and then later on to discover. So I think it's definitely worth enjoying the journey. And also just enjoying some really great performances too. Well, we want to know what you think about mogul Mowgli.

"mogul" Discussed on Pop Culture Happy Hour

"Lot like sounds of metal, well, there are some definite similarities here. That was an indie film in which Ahmed played a musician facing a crossroads after he loses most of his hearing. But mogul Mowgli feels like a different movie in many ways, especially because it's also dealing with the traumas of political and familial history. And it plays with more abstract forms of storytelling. This is the first narrative feature from director and co writer bassan Tariq, and he's directing the new iteration of blade for marvel. The cast also includes Ali Khan and set up a char as zed's parents Bashir and nazra and naban rizwan as zed's younger artistic rival RPG. Mogul Mowgli is now available to rent or buy on demand. So Emile, I'm curious to hear how you feel about this movie, but also how you feel about Riz Ahmed in general because in many ways, this is a sort of semi autobiographical story. He's drawing from his own life, his own feelings about his background and the way he's connected with his family. And he's also a rapper. So I'm curious as to how you felt going into this film and what you took away from it. Yeah, I mean two big questions for sure. In approaching the film, I was also expecting something close to Sound of Metal. But what you get instead is something that's so intimate and personal. It's almost uncomfortable. If you know anything about Riz Ahmed's past, you know, if you know him as a poet and a rapper and someone who very publicly struggles with identity and art, then it really felt like a love letter to his family to his fans to his people. You know, I just thought it was a very, very personal and intimate portrayal. And so that sort of caught me off guard. I really enjoyed the film. I thought it was almost not even plot driven, even though there is a very clear assistant plot. But it's much more atmospheric in its sort of storytelling. And I thought that was really interesting. But you know, it sort of unearths more questions than it answers at times with sort of how I felt about some of the themes of identity and Diaspora and you know what it means to be somewhere in between your homeland and your adopted land and yeah, immigrant identity. There were times when I thought there's another movie underneath this movie that I also really want to watch if you know what I mean. Yeah, I have that sense too. And part of it stems from the things that I don't necessarily know that he's drawing from. I of course know about the partition between India and Pakistan and I've seen other stories told about this, not in, I think, as nearly as interesting ways as this movie is trying to do, but I think with this film, unlike something like Sound of Metal, there's a higher bar of knowledge for an entry point to really understanding a lot of it. I was watching it at home. So I was able to pause sometimes and be like, I feel like I should probably Google this. That didn't stop me from enjoying it, but I do think it stops me from really being able to immerse myself in it, the way that I wanted to. Part of that is my own fault. But I also think I wonder if there were ways to tell this story a little bit more clearly in some respects for viewers. But I just feel conflicted about that because I hate when stories tell too much and don't show. And so it's like, where do you fall on that? And I think that for viewers, I think people like myself will probably struggle with it, but I do hope that they keep with it because I do think even though there were parts of it that I couldn't get, there were so much that I could understand and that I could relate to and that I felt was going beyond just the typical sort of immigrant story. And I especially really appreciated the fact that there is this sort of through line of him wrestling with his family, but also wrestling with the possibility of not being able to create his own family, or at least the biological family that he wants. I don't think it's a spoiler to say, when he gets this illness, he runs the risk of possibly becoming infertile. And I'm trying to think of how many stories we've seen were the man is the one who's wrestling with that. And so I really like that and thought aspects of that were really interesting to see it being told from a perspective of the character and also his father who's very much like you're having children. And it's like, wow, this is a lot. So I really liked it. And I'm curious when you say that you feel like there was another movie under this that you would have liked to see. What would that have looked like for you? Well, just going back to the very interesting point that you raised about who do we make art for and over explaining certain aspects of South Asian identity and history I actually been having a lot of these conversations with South Asian creators in the last little while about when we make something or we put something in our film or TV that that's just for us and how much you should explain it for audiences or is it not wonderful to encounter something be confused by it and then look it up and suddenly know more. So I think that point that you've raises so interesting. But leaping off of that, I think there could have been a little bit more connecting us to who his parents were and why he was so conflicted about going back. Of course we understand, I think a lot of people know that, you know, within any kind of immigrant family, there's traditions and mythology and ways of being that can feel constricting and heavy for the next generation. So it's not surprising, perhaps that he struggled to go home or struggle to connect his family even though he's very vulnerable when he does start to become ill. But there was so much about his father's history and leaving what was then India for Pakistan because of partition, so much about his mother and I just thought there were a lot of layers and connections that were worth investigating and interrogating that it never quite did. And it did at times then leave you feeling like you didn't quite understand zed as much as you wanted to. And I think you know obviously it's a creative choice to lean more into that atmosphere to lean more into some of those interesting visuals. And I like those choices. I like the sort of the dance element that was there leaning heavy into the music and the poetry and the wrap. But then in turn did sacrifice some linear plot. And I did feel like, well, that's a movie I want to watch too. Yeah, I wonder if that kind of contributes in a way inadvertently to a sort of more generic immigrant tale in a way that sort of flattens it and doesn't give that sort of very very personal note. Well, I do think that especially his relationship with his father is very, very interesting. And I think the last scene of the movie, I was just like, it's just such a really touching moment between father and son that I really, really loved. I did like you kind of feel as though the parents felt sort of like a mystery in a way that didn't necessarily serve the story. So you have like two sort of competing stories going on here. You have his connection to his family and him struggling with that. But then there's also this very interesting dynamic where he's struggling with himself as an artist and what that means. And what it means to have this artistic persona that isn't some ways assimilating to a certain kind of culture. And also appropriating. Black culture in many ways. And he even addresses that, which I thought was really interesting. For those who aren't familiar with Riz Ahmed's work as a rapper, is that something he's also dealing with in his own.

Politico Highlights Rising Republican Sen. Tim Scott

"And politico is a very left wing site now and then it gets it right. But more than than now, And it it indicates the kind of Republicans that they like Mitch McConnell, his people leak to politico all the time. That says GOP mega donors flock to Tim Scott Building 2024 Buzz Oracle's Larry Ellison is the biggest name in a group of major Republican donors sending big money to South Carolina Scott It starts off this way. Republican Senator Tim Scott boarded a plane to Hawaii earlier this year to meet with one of the richest people in the world tech titan Larry Ellison. Ellison's remote Lanai Island home owner. I'm jealous. Was well out of the South Carolina senators way. But for Scott, who like the 76 year old Ellison is an outspoken advocate for school choice. Cultivating the mogul has paid dividends. And could help. Propel a 2024 presidential bid. Since last October, Ellison has contributed $10 million to an outside group aligned with the senator. A huge sum even in the Super Pac era, and the business owners biggest known contribution in three decades as a political donor. Scott's Behind the scenes courtship of Allison illustrates how the senator has quietly become a powerhouse fundraiser and a major force within the Republican Party. Scott, the only black Republican in the Senate. Has seen his profile rise since delivering the party's response the President Joe Biden's joint address to Congress in April, It's developing a vast network of small and large dollar donors. That spans his party's ideological spectrum, helping him far outraced Senate colleagues this year. The pro Scott Super Pac Opportunity Matters Fund has drawn support from conservative donors like Richard Gabby, who is bankrolled the likes of former President Donald Trump and Georgia representative Marjorie Tele Green. Scott has also received backing from the party's mainstream

His attorneys say prosecutors in the straw got too much help from the judge. They say James Burke was Cavaliers. They put it and protecting one steams right to a fair trial. In a 166 page brief filed with the state appellate court, Weinsteins lawyers say Burt made too many rulings to help prosecutors. One was to let the state call additional witnesses to tell jurors about allegations against Weinstein that never led to criminal charges. The brief even criticizes the 23 years sentence that was imposed on the ex producer. Prosecutors say they will respond to the brief in court. A Moscow Wells Gabriel

"For former movie mogul Harvey Weinstein took steps today to appeal his conviction in New York on sexual assault charges. Comes as preparations were underway for a court hearing that could lead to his being extradited to Los Angeles. KCRW's Terry Glaser has more Weinstein serving a 23 year prison sentence after New York jury found him guilty of rape and sexual assault, and he's facing 11 more charges in Southern California. When it comes to the New York case, Weinsteins lawyers alleged the judge made several mistakes which led to an unfair trial. They say one of the jurors should have been dismissed because she was writing a novel about predatory older men that had similarities to the case. She was seated on the panel because the defense had run out of challenges to potential jurors. Weinsteins lawyers also claim the judge admitted evidence from three women about sexual violence that was not directly related to the case. And they say Weinstein was forced to give up his right to testify because the judge would have allowed prosecutors to question him about allegations beyond the specific charges

You're not responsible for everything the senior. You'll probably make better stuff and also just have like a nice life work with someone else and you won't. You won't be torturing yourself trying to do it over yourself yeah.

I wonder what my own bed feels like. it was essential to kick it off. You know interesting kick it off and be boring. I think essential as far as doing it again and in terms of wanting to do it again. I think it was just too crazy. Yes too crazy. I know that a lot of people out there that want to digital content. That's like I think I think a lot of people do digital content huntings. They want to be like crazy life man but it's it's it's just not manageable. I don't think it's like it's not you can't go forever. Yeah I mean Yeah Yeah. I like to edit. My Passion is editing so I'd rather just be chopping all I'd rather be sitting behind a computer. Sometimes chopping yeah yeah. Would you like to do all right so we're just about ready to end this now. I'm GonNa ask you a question that I haven't planned and that question is going to be the portal question. It can be if I was well now. I can't say the question of this point and then if you were able to go into portal twenty years ago if you're so so the report opened future youth luck did five years into the future. What advice did you tell yourself might be questioned never make sense because it doesn't make sense for me to know thinking it probably doesn't make sense at all the one in the past right quick for people that want to make a buck traditional content really fast? What's the biggest misunderstanding that people have about it? There's the conception Shen that it's like a it's easy which I don't think it is I think a lot of making like digital digital content is really aware of the fact that a lot of it exists and a lot of it. It is the alternative to what you're making. I think you're really aware of the fact that you have a lot of competitors. You're really aware of what what is that. You're doing could potentially have already been done before. There's a lot of self awareness that is kind of the Plague League of making digital content at least to me when I was working on it. I found it really hard not to kind of be a little bit too self aware about what we were making and then my advice I would be don't watch digital content while you're making digital content and make something that you would rather the interested in watching and if you're interested it than someone else I don't know about everybody but somebody else might be interested in and and it's just a little bit easier because I think the one thing of of breath of making just working on other jobs that I've worked on his there's definitely not as much self awareness. I think when you cut promos or something slager commercials or something like that that you can always end it with being like Oh that was like that was like undeniably dislike kind of cool you know or like we sold this thing I think with with with digital content. There's this feeling of like you're trying to make something funny or entertaining and also like it's just the expectations are just in a different place and because it's so clearly representation of you in your creative ability. I think it becomes a little daunting. You Know Yeah Yeah. I was a surprise surprise to me given the fact that you know you assume that like Oh. It's you know I've I've trumped much youtube like you can do whatever you should be fast yeah I I mean I never had that quite quite assumption of whether or not who's going to be super faster easy but I was more. I was surprised at how self aware I was going to be making the content forgot one thing though the toilet opened up all you and you walk through it and there's Serbian brewery sitting there economics homework and what's the one thing that you home studying. If I was to give myself advice about like just making I would. I mean I'll be honest. If I'll do the film Oh make one person then I'll do the the real one if if if I if I was able to tell myself some advise early on starting out I would've told myself to just be more confident in applying yourself and promoting yourself and you generally generally have something to offer to the table and if you're out there trying to get an internship or trying to get a job the area the barrier ear a lot of the time outside of your experience which is one and also your you know your connections all that stuff a lot of it is also willingness willingness a lot of it is also showing the person who you want to work with whether how willing you are to work on a on on a project with them because I mean there's a lot of social cues accused of prevent us from showing how willing we are. I think it makes us look like we're crazy and the thing about this town town is it's full of crazy. People see the only thing the only way to talk to crazy people is with crazy and they recognize that these crazy people and when you're crazy the crazies respond to you and that's how you get a job. I think there's a nice point there about about about being confident the choice offer yeah and I think a lot of into you have to kind of walk the walk in terms of if you're trying to show that you're willing in your willingness to work at this place or collaborate with someone sometimes it takes more than just an email it you should send the email you should send the call but sometimes you should try to show people that you that I read something about Zach Arnold and he's an editor who is in a lot of the post community and he talks about how when he started editing he he he was a trailer editor I think and then he his first narrative job was on the show burn notice and he talked about how he he made it. He he told the editors how much he knew about the a show where their music cues were what they did the style of the show he he was like very descriptive in how interested he was in working with them and they needed some help one day and he I think he dropped what he was doing and he jumped on to to work with them and he did the same thing even now that he's in establish editor he did the same thing with that. Cobra Kai show like he kind of gave them a package of what their style would be their music that kind of stuff so he he was willing you know he showed up at the door. Yeah with a reason for people to kind of agree absolutely yeah. I think people don't give themselves credit enough for people also don't realize how much employers and like people that respect want people that are willing and talented people that are gonNA were cards to come in. I don't think you realize that yeah. I mean a part of it too. A lot of time to is yeah and it's also location like it's easy for us to say because we live in L. A. There's a mill giving what you WANNA do a lot of people people out there who are totally willing but they just can't get to to a market that that has as many as many of those opportunities slayer a bi-coastal place but for those of you who are in situations that can afford that then you should definitely speak up and make sure that uh-huh people recognize you yeah all right well from the guy with a nice couch closed this really so thanks for joining us.

"mogul" Discussed on The Indy Mogul Podcast

"I think Martin Scorsese said something about his film. School teacher was telling him that like the way you shoot a shot is that it has a beginning middle and end regardless of wherever else whatever else you've shot I can see that and then you know that becomes more cinematic because then you can truly put that shot anywhere in a movie and it just becomes because of the existence by itself yeah yeah so even if you're shooting cut away if if you make something about it a little bit interesting then it it better absolute was random but no that's not random and aww. I wish it's something that we did. I was really young. I'm done. I'm green with the Youtube. It's hard youtube is super. I think a lot of people people out there youtubers if they're watching already you guys know hard as hell people that are trying to get into youtube why I don't think realize just how hard it is yeah I mean I think also I think also though this youtube what's cool about it is the scope of what you decide to do is really important. I think the the most difficult part about the trip was just trying to figure out the scope of what we were trying to achieve in terms of the educational occasional episodes because depending on the scope that you do you can be a lot easier or more kind of like if you're going on and you just want to make videos of you talking about your cat and that's the scope of your channel. Your videos can be very easy and simple. You can make a lot of videos vicious with the style which I think we went pretty images format yeah then it's much harder to keep up with yeah. I think I mean it was it was a great learning experience really taught me a lot about another world of filmmaking that I I wasn't really used to. I think my favorite part of the trump who was just seeing how many filmmakers for doing it differently you know yeah. That was cool part yeah. That was definitely a cool thing to see of like yeah. Some people working out of their basements some people working in a studio production studio renting out places some people just making money on this one type of shoot. Some people yeah I think about range of filmmakers makers were was was absolutely insane. Let's talk post real quick. What did it look like jumping J? I mean uh it was it was it was a lot of footage footage jumping so you gotta remember you. We came back from the trip actually just like meeting real quick so during the trip. What are we doing to manage storage as well so you know I mean the media management WanNa one you want three copies? He's of everything else triplicated data we kept two masters so too big hard drives that just had all media on it and then I would back up every odd the rest of the media onto small shuttle drives so I I would have three copies copies of all the media and then one thing that I found helpful for editing is processing everything by day because you you know we'll be in a location but we'll be doing three or four different shoots in that one location so there's b-roll that could that shot one day that could extend to all three shoots shoots so rather than making a project for every single person of the bat. I thought it was better to create a project for everyday shoot and then I'm kind of organized stuff from there so you know May twenty third we had a we had a shoot with Y C. We had a shoot with Kazu you and then we had just New York Bureau and I created you know bins and sequences for New York Bureau that I knew I could import to any project that was in New York yeah and that way that way rather than having too much media in every one of your projects I kind of single out things that could be shared across all all the projects so it was just a better way to keep track of my my media by organizing it by the day that I shot and then once I'm in the edit I just go into each each of those dailies days like those dailies projects and then I would import the bins that I needed so oh like if I'm working on causes. I know I'm only going to import. I'm going to go to five twenty three and only import causes interview his bureau footage and then I'm GonNa Import All the New York Bureau that way when I'm editing causes his thing I'll have all of his footage but also the New York Bureau to kind of create the travel element also producing a trip like this to you WanNa Planet in a way by which you can can schedule in multiple episodes in the same day right block out time to shoot be role of this location and try to say you know what how many upsets could be used this force it. I was never a one shoot one day kind of thing. It was always yeah. We'll shoot here. Well shoot here. We're missing some bureau for this episode. Let's go yeah I mean that's just the way that's just the way filmmaking. Don't making is done in in every aspect I think I think the issue with a lot of student films is that it's not actually that they a are bad. It's actually that they don't get to do re-shoots or they don't have the budget to do all the time to be able to fix their edits. I mean I was watching a black reign the movie from the eighties with Ridley Scott and he shot the movie in Japan and they shot beautiful things like just parts of a scene seen in Japan but then they realized that it was going to be too expensive to film all bit in Japan so he would shoot he he shot some. I remember reading that he shot something at a train station. it was supposed to be a whole seem that happened in the train station and the only thing that they got because he only had forty five minutes to do it. They only got an establishing shot for a whole scene in his shot John Every day they were like well no they went back to. La and then they mix it all in Sean downtown and then it makes the Tokyo footage that was basically that's basically the thing that we shot like Ridley Scott but that's basically what is absolutely we just an interview. Just an interview we shot some location L. and then we would come back and then peace into the bones of the story of what the up with the lesson is now. I think that's what exactly do you need in each location but what is essential because I think we went up there with sort of sometime. We'd have like okay we can shoot try to get some of this live on location and it was like no way when you're stressed out of time. What is the bare bones like? I need this otherwise this location and this trip would have toys and it was shooting the person in their space doing the interview landscape be role travel bureau end even the travel bureau. There's Coulda feel this story. Bloomberg story blocks footage yeah absolutely it's just like one of the bare bones essential of his trip. Get get all of that and again you can treat it kind of like a rolling project and you can patch it up to what we did. Yeah and that's what kind of happened I think cows what when we were starting out. I was having a lot of trouble kind of figuring out how to put together the episode and then I started to realize that oh no we just need to patch things up and we you just need a line that would take upset from beginning to end and again you can. I think there's two ways to do it. You can either do the through line in the beginning you can write it out and have it shoot it with your through line. In mind or you can shoot a bunch of stuff and then do your through line at the end yeah I mean and they come with them and use that to kind of film. I mean it's it's branding. The script always happens at some point in the beginning. What's going to happen at the end but if you want a story always happen now it just depends on when you want to do it? If you WANNA film it if you want to do all the work early on and do it during production or if you WANNA run and gun and then by doing pickups likely it always happens. It's funny is that there's episodes where I thought it worked better in episode that I thought it worked whereas T- like for instance like why episode again again my probably my favorite episode of the series we it wouldn't have worked with prescriptive it. I found a way but you'd have to break apart the story and be like okay. Okay things changed. Why sees episode? Ted Loves this episode. If if trillion are Dawes did not show the episode would have had no story we would've been sitting Marion empty warehouse and it's like yeah so so I treat that as an anomaly no but I mean I talked to a lot of youtube creators that like again you always go in with a format at least at the very least you have a format. How much is scripted can either save you or you might have to might be wasted? Workings aren't GonNa go according to your script throw in the script and the Monroe in in the but I think that is like the mindset to go in with but I think it always helps to have scripting beforehand especially if your precious on time because that way you go into the location you're like I've got something and how we start shooting it and if we had to throw it out the window dos Soviet but at least if Stockton Chop we would have had an episode something a lot of people what they're trying to do weekly content that feeling they can't keep up and it's like I don't know who you're washing out there but in my experience and I think I've met a lot of online creators everyone would kinda worked with somebody or they have a team of people working with I have friends that work on like I think no one of the guys like apparently long pause again for I don't know why but he has a full team of people that like light and shoot and like every day they have guys like running cards back to the studio but like the feeling of it's always supposed to be like because it's never the case. It's just not the I mean. It's something that's prolific in the film industry of trying to like I mean because even people talk about Youtube but like when you watch the like when you look at taste of cinema and you look at art house directors are directors..

"It was more important about getting the educational element the interview what they were trying to talk about and the nailing it later so for the people who we we knew we were going to shoot something with a lesson with the main goal was just to get the interview I it's a two camera setup so we go and try and find something other in their space so like for Ryan Connolly it was in his face I think if you guys released a Parker Wall episode that was Mattie was in space and then so in those situations you kind of want to just make it look like how their videos look at the funds. Just seeing we show up Yeah Toronto. We're here him yeah and then if it wasn't if it wasn't the case then you had already booked some type of location to shoot and and which like crazy producing that you had to do on that but you know for Caleb that was in a warehouse but in Chicago Yeah in Chicago's original House with Y C in the random was art factory our factory studios and then once we got there you know it was just a single twenty mostly. It was almost always a one twenty D in Dome I think as far as the shooting goes to there was a lot of travel footage so there's like let's break down the shots that we have to get. The first person in the first person wasn't time those jobe. It's funny because similar skin tones didn't it didn't really matter if it was my hands are your hands. We could just cut it in there for sure Yeah No. They're about the same yeah yeah so I was in because we have two shooters on. I couldn't control what Ted was doing. Give him some notes. Maybe after looking at the footage maybe do more of this. maybe mitigate more singles of you interacting with stuff. Maybe make sure you get an intro with you meeting. The ask ask because we kind of wanted to give it the feel of again someone jumping into space but for me as a shooter to get the interstitial her special stuff goes mainly about getting locational B Roll B roll of the two of you guys interacting more lacking. Be You know just stuff that basically you could put in in any situation where you would have the two people for me. It was mainly just getting a lot of supporting stuff because I knew that Ted given given the fact we wanted to make the videos kind of like blogs. His stuff was going to be the more important stuff in terms of in terms of tying certain elements together and giving a field that wasn't kind of corporate and boring yeah I think a lot of the time to we got two locations. We've jest and it was just it just wasn't possible all like literally. It wasn't possible to shoot and talk to someone at the same time right yeah. This looks weird to be like shooting like this being like hey hey. Let's go down so I think it was. It was really crucial that you were shooting a lot of landscapes of like we're in Chicago. Slim keeps in Chicago look like and I just sit there and like prep with him and catch up with somebody. Keep them kind of busy. Break the ice a little bit before we jump into the interview and talk about the episode the stuff was man. I wish we had scripted it out to be totally honest. In advance. I think like the I really love. Tally episode came out with her first. Comeback episode was scripted in the transition to go from place to but you just can't I see other people online making that kind of contact with every scene joke from people who can do that. Uh I mean it's a skill on like I'll be honest I have. I have a lot of experience editing but like as far as making this type of content. I'm go hard like Green. I felt very green doing a lot of this stuff and I think if I was going to do it again I would try to script it. In a way that is more like a traditional traditional coverage shoot show a location you shoot your intro but you you you would kind of lends it through a more casual way which is honestly how most likely every youtube show is probably yes. Absolutely I think one of the things that we realized very quickly and it's kind of ironic because I think with our first episode we talked to Griffin about documentaries and one of the first things at least as I don't okay. How do we really want your documentary to be scripted out and I think it's usually posted episode? Someone was like you guys made a documentary about making a documentary and it's true if you think think about it youtube is the documentary yeah yeah you got a script documentaries script youtube to advise you just end up shooting time content yeah something you're not sure how it fits fits in Reno Yeah and and and that's kind of what we started to gear more sheets towards as we would move along that was kind of a really cool experience of like like shooting every day and once we you know I would learn something from the shoot the day before and then kind of apply it to the next year that we would do I remember for for y c imaging's episode like I didn't shoot any of the portraits until until I was like Oh that day I was like oh we totally diffuse. We probably need a portrait for every single. One of these people so I remember like I think for the our the first day in New York I didn't shoot any and then by the second day I was like oh no. I need a portrait for everybody knew everybody. Yes yes so that it was there was probably more substantial will things that I started adjusting to that but that was kind of a really cool experience for me of like being able to adjust on the fly on especially to the Nice thing about working in the youtube spaces you get to. RND stuff like super quickly. Yes which I thought was cool. Yeah absolutely I think though the format just making sure that it is now down again. It helped so much to do that test episode but there was still so much that we could have you know figured out beforehand which I mean you know I think I I'm near regrets about it because it's like you need to kind of jump in and just start fiddling around and start making it work but at the same time it's it's you know if it was done again. It would be done on. I think we're more planned out. I would have like really wanted to scripted out each of those episodes in hindsight scripting out fourteen episodes yeah really hard road close to impossible but I think the talking head is really a result of trying to script it. After the verdict before we took it a post we can talk about just kind of free three pro and prepping on that project. Is there anything else that you prepped as far as like getting altogether together and kind of prepping hips of format mental notes that you gave yourself that maybe at the end ended the trip. You realized were different than than what you thought I mean there's certain things have like just because it's partly kind of a travel blog. I definitely like went online and was like Oh like what are the rolling going to be in this town or city for a hot sex so what's like the what are some just nice places to fill the role at that was super helpful. I didn't even think about yeah so like I mean like you know like you're. You're in Chicago. I mean you get to play tourists a little bigger in Chicago. Let's go to the bean gene. You're in New York. Let's go to dumbo yeah. You're in Dallas allies. Let's go by that yeah. Let's go by the City Hall. You know just like it's basic travel. Filmmaker wants type stuff but it was something that you know if I was a little bit too myopic about Oh. We're only gonNA shoot the educational aspect of it then it was something that we definitely could have missed but it was also very kind of inherent in the type of logging that we were doing yeah like it's not something thing that I would do for every project. I don't think you need to shoot everything of the city. for every whenever you're on a different part of the story was that we're travelling yeah yeah to say that you needed. We needed that. Can you just need a couple of shots yeah. That was definitely a pre pro thing. One of the biggest things that I misunderstood about making online content was when I watch online content. My favorite part is when you get glimpses of like it's just like real genuine like something that just feels so true and like I mean true in the way that like you just can't script this stuff you know so I think part of it was like man we gotta speed and try to find some of these like genuine moments. There were times where we got it like why sees episode. We did not play on the artists missing the flight flight right and it became. I think one of the best parts of the episode was artist missed his flight. Were like live blogging at like. I don't know what's going on and you didn't you didn't amazing cutting together but but I think looking back at it. It's like you can't even if even if that is the goal is trying to find the real genuine moments. You can't what's the word for. You can't just shoot everything. It's just not possible. Yeah I mean you just can't you gotta go in with a plan editor yeah. I don't want you to shoot it. Exactly you gotta go like documentary. You've got a script all this out beforehand. If something candidate happens let it happen within the limitations of what she's scripted yeah I I'm in the more editing you can do onset better absolutely I mean that's the thing of like any every editor that looks good. I mean some of them are real masters of creating a story and then some of them just know like how to pick the right projects. That's not I'm not saying them. Part of part of being a great editor is learning how to pick pick the right projects because if you're picking projects where people have already edited it in their heads and then you're you're taking it over the top your just the icing on the cake. You don't have to worry about building a cake from yeah. I mean it's the it becomes really difficult to to always find a story stories in certain stuff and the more the editing that you can do onset every editor is GonNa love you better and the product is always. He's GonNa end up better because every piece of footage will fit in a way that it wouldn't have but I mean again there are other filmmakers donated anything thing onset but they create things that are so interesting stories in the yeah..

"Was saying you know it's it's soft overhead lighting so we Kinda came on that. We saw that we experimented a button. We broke down the lighting one by one we shot like regionals like it kind of Casey Nice Daddy Kranji Lake Yeah the camera run front and like talk to a we we tried a bunch of things it Kinda overshot basically the hell we overshot all kind of came in and looked at the footage and basically what we thought was working. What was cringe? What was I mean? It wasn't even just what was cringe it was literally we looked at it and being like okay like can we extrapolate this into you doing this for another twelve episodes. Yes it is as host on episode. I think it was like Oh man we went on said we're like art winemaker test episode going to work and I remember I was just like I don't Oh care how I'm going to over shoot it and then under shoot it and we can find the line in the Senate overshoot a lot. We'll find something in between there. Unfortunately you know I think you met your wall pretty foul. I definitely did I certainly did you know yeah. I think hey people say a lot of the time they're like Oh. Just be genuine. Just beat yourself. It's like when you're dating people. That's the worst advice in the world. Just be yourself. Are you kidding me. I think I'm I'm just trying to look like I understand yourself. Don't do anything but bills false but I think there is different versions of yourself that feel feel good that might feel crane different moments and you've got to kind of find that for yourself yeah and I think that was a big part of that. I learned from working on everything. No I mean in Genoa. I don't working on these videos. was I take things into a direction but for the most part it was gonna be what you're comfortable with us a host so I kind of focused more on like okay like there are certain things that I need to focus on in terms of making an episode. I need to make sure we should the interviews. I need to make sure we get all the transitions. Ah I need to make sure we have some B. Roll for teaching an episode I I need to make sure we have all the logical steps and footage of how we teach an episode so and that was kind of the consideration that went into the pilot episode and we can learn to that oh like how do we tell the story. Let's do the sit downs. You know. That was one thing it was A. I was like okay like there's way too many holes in the episode we tried telling it all on set on location and in our in the interviews you know like it. It just became a thing like it wasn't going to be repeatable for us to try to tell all the story alive on location so we kinda thought it would be better to get the more high production value stuff and then kind of filling in gaps through more of a personality driven sit down. which was I mean it's a part of the Youtube language too so I thought that that seemed like the best way to do the episodes yeah and I think this way let us especially because the style was like we wanted to interview people and then I'm trying to like parse through and find like the key moments in that I think I think the talking head was something we didn't plan on the beginning but was pretty essential? Actually I think I think also like the I think the talking head kind of worth more into what your strengths are rather than having to do like act really wacky. You know all the time. Oh Yeah Yeah especially to when we're meeting some of these you know contact or industry people that you might not know very well. You kind of WanNa play things a little safe and tell them not to just just do like the wildest for sure. I think the dream for the show to talk about this a lot was like we sorta wanted to do like an Anthony Bourdain gene for filmmakers. Wouldn't it be so cool if I think a lot of it was because I had this conversation with a publicist for DP and she was just talking about all these like Kinda kind of like high end like AFCD's that like frankly whirling trying to do social media and it was like these people are brilliant geniuses but they don't really have a platform to talk on and like the idea was that hopefully bring a lot of those people to come and talk about these things so talk about the gear well prior to actually going on. This trip is a lot of interest uh-huh women. What were you organizing and making sure of? What are your checklists look like four a long trip where you're going and making a ton of content? What are you gotTA? Make sure that you have have situated. This isn't a situation where choosing your camera is important and we talk about camera yeah here but choosing a camera is important because because it also decide a lot of the different factors of the gear in terms of batteries media camera support support whether you have an ibis in the camera and Internal Bodies Image Stabilization Your Lens Choice is also limited so in terms of speed of of the Lens aperture that kind of thing so I mean honestly we the camera we chose the one. DX which does it because it was here. I mean it's it's is the camera we had. This is here already yeah yeah yeah yeah so we had. We had the one the X. so I was like okay like I mean it's a flexible camera. It shoots all different types of frame rates shoot four K. when you wanted to shoot for K. not in the most efficient things space wise plenty of people out there that will also this cameras not worth the specs yeah. It's not fun. I will say that. I think that there's a quality to the camera. That's looks like you too. It looks like it's a it's a nice camera for I haven't I I used to shoot a lot starting out and then I kind of stopped and just focused on editing so it's kind of like a nice thing for me to hold that like cannon. Ds larger faster foreign factor was kind of Nice but I think it it had its moments in terms of being great on the on the on the shoot in terms of the frame rates and the low Louis light especially but yeah from there you kind of make sure once the camera figure it out then you just gotTa make sure you have enough. You know your media situation is great. Oh your your batteries. We didn't bring tripods. That's the you know the the main thing was it was mainly like there are a lot of things that you we thought that we should bring but we didn't bring because we assumed that the filmmakers we met would have them well. I'll say I'll say this first of all you gotta remember that we were doing ten cities and fourteen days yeah and you can't carry that much gear around yeah especially when you're trying to you think literally Chicago Toronto. We've fluid in the morning six. Am Shot with Mattia Poi- yeah show fully maurice flu grand the airport again that night to go fly. We missed that flight that that was even in the schedule I think was this meant. That was no time for checking bags for tweeting back yet so we were working with luggage. Oh I mean we had a backpack and a Kerryon waller year until backpacking to carry it yeah I mean I had I had like maybe maybe twenty percent of my carry on had my clothes in it and then the rest of it was like we had one one twenty one little light stand. We had one in many dome like soft box of that. We never used actually because we needed it. It was just too small. we needed like a bigger source and then just like all these random like trinkets like like a extension like. Was it a power or brick that tech yeah the best tech was great. You know like I had I had I had like a little like charging station every night that I would plug in our phones. How every camera battery every what is it Anton Bauer batteries equipped with the bugs? Oh sorry the best tickets basically it's just his like little cube that like has like an outlet on every face of it and then it has like a USB port on every of it and like every hotel room I went in two thousand the first thing on the mobile charging station for sure yen avows the first thing I charged every I made sure every time we got to a new place. The everything was charged. I set up the laptop started downloading stuff and that was kind of the most important thing was like media management and and battery management organized about every day we like. I just woke up we had our camera situation. Set up was the reception yeah so we always one and then one sixty for you and now every every morning we had like a little routine like I would look over at Ted and I would go you have your first. He would say wake up. I I was like well. You were pretty good about it but I had to be a mom in other respects in the sense that I'd be like okay. Hey Do you have your media media. It was like okay I have some new media view and then I'd be like do you have your batteries then you'd be like batteries and then I'd be like okay all right I double check that I had all my stuff and then you know and then from there we kinda hop out. Yeah it was really important to always check on that stuff and then also make sure that Oh yeah we had the little light panels to we always had we always little nine for just a tiny little emma nine yeah and then the glide cam absolutely the glide cam which which we had to bring rather than a Ronin. I'm sure we've already made this point a lot of times in the show but we had the glide cam rather than the Ronin and we have the choice to we left there on mass aspect in yeah mainly because it was just going to be too wild of a shoot to worry about like this thing it and I just gotten Super USA bouncing using the glide cam and then also I just didn't WanNa worry about charging another thing and it's also heavier. I'm not strong. I'm not strong. I'm editor on like one of you like I'm not what's his name buff nerds smuggler Jacob. Oh I'm newborn Jacob respect Jacob bones ones. I'm I'm I'm sitting on the computer. Yeah no that so I I didn't want to be honest the glide cam with the DAX. I got pretty strapped. I got pretty fit. The map I lost ten pounds sosa running around sixty mark to come flooding stand up on the job. We've got the glad cam with a Monday as far as the actual shooting goes. What did it look like going each day so we woke up routine checking everything from meeting? Got Your Batteries Yeah Yeah Yeah. Let's let's go day. Plan had the location. What are the shooting actually look like Oh? This is something that we started figuring out was we had we had so many different guests on the show. Some people are teaching the lesson that we would film and then some people were we'd have to figure it out. After we got back..

"Custom brackets for my motion control robots or things like that or I've got a tripod play that needs to attach to some weird proprietary like robot part and you know the the Boltholes don't lineup so I'll build a adaptor to make to make those two pieces the Annika mating adapter Raja so it sounds the second thing that you can also make our parts that are plastic already on cameras absolutely so things like focus rings is great for Focus Ring. You can sprint once you can print classic adjustable ones you buy from like Red Rock or whatever back in the day that kind of clamp on or what's great is because you can print in any this is you could print custom rings for any of all your lenses yeah and you know it takes a little trial and error but other. That's the other thing with the Internet is if it's a common thing like Dat. Someone's already designed it so you just download print it to rent. A bunch of sizes fits on your togas rings. Yeah that's a huge. That's those are expensive yeah. I've never I've never been there so fast apprently printing like twenty minutes yeah. That's amazing okay so anything that's plastic. Basically that's common already. They'll probably already be important that someone's paying for it. Probably someone's already designed. It and you can just download it for free. Conscious sounds good okay and then because we're in front of the obvious so I'm GonNa get real crazy with crazy real crazy with the do. There's obviously I guess if you get really deep into filmmaking. Mrs Like the reward that you could get going going down. This crazy rabbit again is you could make has physical custom lower cost versions of like highest tag gear. Yes in a way in which is like. There's a lot of stuff for for like more affordable. Companies Common made affordable versions for things like shoulder eggs. Treasure steady cams things like that but there are some places where the affordable has not been made yet yeah. I think it's super specialized so like a bolt arm for instance. Yes there's just not a lot cheaper options other than on that thing and and I get why because there aren't that many people that need something that precise for sure in specific the motion control rig that I've made is is basically equivalent to what they would use on a higher end big-budget like stop motion film and how much would normally costs to zoom they use things lightbulbs which is about about one hundred fifty to two hundred thousand dollars Nice. How much did a custom make the I would say. I haven't added up totally but I would say less than three three thousand. That's amazing. That's insane. Po Toys Yeah Yeah and it's it's mostly off the shelf parts like I would say a the three main sites pretty much everything for this robot off of Amazon opened builds dot com which is like a diy like CNC and Cervo city dot. com so those three places most of the parts for their. That's crazy yeah so if if you if you were to go super deep into the west of I think you can make a lot more affordable versions of things that are that are out on the market yet and I think the person that I think of enlightening doing this. Doing that is is my buddy key that I mentioned before yeah just doing it independently by himself now. There's a thing called the Hudson spider that is those. Led Strips inside of a Softbank's you know the exact pricing on top of my head but I'm sure it's much more expensive than buying the strips and just making it yourself right yeah yeah so going deep into this. Diy Pat there is sort of There is still diy filmmaking. It's just more for like adapters for pieces for more specialized more specialized because I think the need has been filled a little bit yes so now. If you WanNa make something you can make you can use that talent to sort of build more specialized higher on things yes. I think everything's more accessible yeah like your tried and true. Basic filmmaker equipment that we used to have to make is now accessible. The super specialized high-tech stuff which you couldn't afford and probably couldn't make now you can actually make it if you're crazy like me so crazy people. It's better for everyone on you know everything's more accessible with the technology and the knowledge a because I couldn't have built this if I didn't find the ten other crazy nerds who are building things like online yeah and I think from a company standpoint. It's like the the indie film scene sort of blown up in a way that now it is is interesting for companies to come in and make that stuff wasn't before right it wasn't there was either super high end or nothing right now. There's this kind of living breathing indie film world total wonder if that started with like the cameras can really thank you for indy mogul just N. A. B. You would all be goals. I feel like indy mogul helped really push that like diy filmmaker thing and now this whole industry sprung up so I think rightly if all just like just go to care about credit just like half a percent of revenue the go-to anybody just walk around. I will say from a company standpoint that there are people that go around that go around the company to company and dislike trademark stuff. You get hit up by like companies outside of the film making industry. It'll just come in and be like Oh we make we are in the company. I need the trademark steel thing yeah. Pantry controls are a real thing I believe as again that's the the best word I can use to describe them because trying to get the explicit rating on this cares a whole. There's a whole this American life about patent. Some bad. I recommend is a lot of good time to be. I mean it's the best time in the worst time to be an indie inventor company. Yeah I have friends all the time when I build something crazy and they're like. Do you ever think think about patenting. It and I'm like that's not really thing anymore. I always that's a tangent. Don't get me started on as long as we were talking about another one that the full discussion for sure okay cool lesson to mention and this is just brought it up actually is thanks to is fabric materials and things like that because you can go and buy Muslim at every store. You can buy Deuba team things like that just again. I'm not sure of that. They're exactly the same because it's probably not yeah because I think you know. You got to put the rag place or something like that. They rate their Muslim bowl quarter half debased on how much light loss there is right actual right material but again if you're filmmaking don't feel like spending four hundred dollars four by four of material. Ariel and can anyone really tell as far as the viewer goes someone's GonNa flame and I agree you can and I'm not discounting that it's an art. I'm just saying some people don't want to spend four hundred dollars for some fabric and can tell you Mr Amac flame him he lives in. You just not be all the houses in the U. S. There okay okay so fabrics. I think Dr Gray One. Oh we also want to mention if you don't know what we'd drive we gotta go Home Depot. It's literally the floor to stop weeds from coming up yeah but what it does is it's also cheap poor man's do if you want to be able to knock down the light on things you can buy like huge rolls of we'd. Rab a super cheap windows or whatever yeah totally like destroy kill them but it'll like knock so much down oh that it's like a great way to control the lightness bays okay so he sees garbage bags. Garbage bags are another one. I think we'd have a little easier to play with because it is a fabric that makes sense intellectually hanging. Won't you know you don't tape side of it that she doesn't like curling yeah totally garbage bags days yeah. There's still the option to end things out into kind of close it out real quick. Eric got a question food that the audience has been asking a lot and it's not really a question. It's more of an assertion. It's just going to say to echo the voice voice Irwin. Oh man back via. Thanks what is your answer would be a Gotcha journalism. no well you heard from the answer isn't to bring back ex. Sorry guys it moved onto. You're doing projects. Companies absolutely and it's just you know that type of cardboard and tape and spitting blood is this this. Is You know not as what I'm personally interested in but I also think there's just so much out there like you know yes. We do episodes on how to do something super specific but first of all there's a lot to be copycats out there and between like our back catalog and all the copycats which a lot of them are really good. You like any recommended recommends copycats from people that are looking for the content. There is man on me. Stuff is pretty good. It's the DIY prop shop what it's called we're. GonNa do a wash of all the all the names he's like. Oh Man. Can we think of very yeah. There's a lot and 'cause I again. I think is the explosion of the cause play community if you're looking at special effects there's really really there's everything you need is already out there. You know either. There's there's either five different versions of exactly what you WanNa make or you could take a little bit of this a a little bit of that and it's out there so the gear side and like the tools like production tools we covered most of that in this episode of what the we need are talking about the specialized pills you can find most facebook groups absolutely. Arab probably already. There's so many communities when any mogul started there. Weren't these online online communities. That was the one place you could go and now if you know it's a great place to learn and be entertained but when you really get into the nitty gritty there's a lot of places make sense and then also. I think the question is so you're working on a secret project that we can mention or sending positive vibes. Eric Irk anything else coming up well. I had this idea to do any mogul. Show indy mogul show okay. I'm loving what you guys. Were doing itching obvious I don't WanNa do behalf we have had by Hashtag Hachinohe. Be thanks but no thanks but what you know. I love all you guys and Gals Lebane- mogul so we are talking about a new show where it's like a deep dive on all the coolest filmmaking stuff that you guys and US think is interesting so it's like the history of red cameras like how DSL are filmmaking changed. Our our lives where the hell did where the hell did the guy that made the red rock micro rigs come from because we all give them a lot of money yeah right shoulder a gap remember eighteen hundred dollars for a plastic cylinder men and I thought it was a great deal the company though they're living on private islands apparently like lettuce adapters leanest absolutely how was a weird time and then what's all the cool developments now now just really netting out on bill maker stuff just talking menial deep dives history back act new show coming soon yeah really looking forward to it channels looking good. Everybody's happy we're back in. La I episode back cool. I think we're really close physically close right now. Our shops are very close literally ten minutes apart..
