So the 7 day shootout went down last week. We were successful in turning in a short film on time. (praise the heavens) In this episode I discuss a few details about that short film. Then I reminisce about all the 7 day shootouts that i've participated in since 2009. This was a late night episode, so it's extra dreamy for my dreamy friends.

Music in this episode is by Kevin Humler who provided the music for the score of our 2016 7 day shootout entry titled AURA. 

Check out the 7 Day shootout as part of the KNOXVILLE FILM FESTIVAL from August 26-28th. Find more info at

As you may have noticed, I'm taking a step back as your favorite Knoxville filmmaking podcast. The Knoxville Film Festival's organizer, Keith McDaniel, has started a new podcast called "Tennessee Filmmaker." This will be the place where you can find news and info regarding East Tennessee filmmaking. I talk about this transition in this brief 4 minute podcast.

Mike Stanley is something of a local legend in Knoxville's film community. He's been a working actor for the past 20 years. In this episode we get in our undies and discuss some of the pitfalls that actors can stumble into. Mike does a great job of educating my brain on many aspects of an actors life, which I consider valuable information for anyone in the world of film and video.
