Episode 156 is our biweekly panel discussion. This episode was recorded August 30, 2023.
We tackle a few topics with our panelists, but we begin with Levi’s well informed message, as a union member, about the WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes and how they affect indie filmmakers. We discuss what self branding implies and the shift it’s taken for creators, artists and filmmakers during the popularity of social media. This topic led us to discuss self-distribution as an individual and as a community. Could community distribution be the next new thing for indie filmmakers and creators? I share a bit about white label OTT streaming distribution.
We congratulate Levi Austin Morris for winning an award for his mobile feature film, Paralysis. And Ryan McDonald shares his upcoming film festival in Ogden, Utah.
The panelists: Ryan McDonald, Levi Austin Morris, Jason Rivera, Joey Min.
