It's Podcast Friday and today's podcast in the spotlight is Film Courage. I know there are a lot of filmmakers in Chicago that like to talk shop but sometimes you don't really have anyone there to either rant to or discuss why or why you don't like a film or just what's happening in the industry, especially the indie scene. So this is where a podcast or web series can be handy. Film Courage podcast comes out of FilmCourage.com, a website that was started in 2008 by David Branin who decided he wanted to start his own blog about film where he could talk shop and at the same time share with others on the web. A year later bringing in a co-host, Karen Worden, he began a radio show that would cover filmmaking, screenwriting, acting, and also encourage others who wanted to get in the biz. As of 2009 David and Karen has hosted a weekly show every Sunday inviting guest from various backgrounds that has grown from being a show about filmmaking to a reputable site that has engulfed the indie world.
Looking for a podcast that'll help spark those creative flames? Film Courage podcast is the podcast to listen to. It's one that should be on your subscription list and one you can pass on to fellow filmmakers who are also looking to talk shop. You can keep up with the show and website by following on Twitter (@filmcourage) and liking on Facebook.
