Making Movies is HARD!!!
The Struggles of Indie Filmmaking
Liz Manashil and Alrik Bursell discuss independent filmmaking, everything from writing, producing and directing to working as crew. But this is not just a podcast about "making it," it's also about struggling with rejection, self-doubt and everything else that comes with pursuing a career in film. Follow along as we forge our own way through the industry and talk to guests who are also making it happen.

Authentic, useful and diverse!
I love this show! It’s relatable and honest about the ugly truth of being in the indie film world. It’s full of resources. It covers many topics and tips as well as hosts guests from all sorts of experiences and backgrounds. Very refreshing!
