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!

Awesome podcast. Great resource and source of both inspiration and reality checks for independent filmmakers.

Relatively new listener, just a few months in and quickly digging my way through the back catalogue of this show, which has quickly become my favorite filmmaking podcast. So much insightful information from indie filmmakers at all levels of their careers! Thanks Liz Alrik.

Making movies is hard has been a great education in independent film for me. I really appreciate Liz and Alrich’s “we’re all in this together” attitude. I’m listening through tons of past episodes to learn, and it also really helps me stay motivated to keep pursuing the indie dream.

Hosts Liz and Alrik provide inspiration, humor, and fellowship filled with great interviews, guests, and perspectives. Making Movies is Hard is a must listen.

I wish I found this podcast years ago. I’ve been making films for a long time and still so much of the process is a mystery to me. The best part about this show is the encouragement to just get out and make things, and hearing so many different filmmakers tell their unique stories, getting into...Read full review »

Just found this show. As an actor it gives such a fresh perspective

I discovered this podcast because of the Joe Bob Briggs episode. I’m not a filmmaker, but I’ve always been interested in the process of movie making and I’m a fan of watching independent films. The hosts of this show Liz and Alrik do a great job with their interviews and keep the show interesting...Read full review »

Starting my second script but first real deal screen writing process.

It’s been exciting to see this podcast grow, morph and establish itself as a wellspring of empowerment for independent filmmakers at every level. What I hope people will take away from this show, is the ability to recognize their own film community, no matter the geographic location. Always...Read full review »
Richard J Bosner via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/01/20
I always thought Liz & Alrik were just being modest about the number of reviews and Patreon supporters they receive. Hearing Liz genuinely seem surprised/happy that I was supposedly the first person they didn’t personally know sign up as a patron - I’m thinking maybe this show really is not...Read full review »

I am a screenwriter and filmmaker and let me just say that I have searched far and wide for a good entertaining, and consistent film podcast. MMIH is everything I wanted & needed in film podcast!

I’ve been listening since the beginning and this show gets better and better. Timothy and Alrik had their chemistry and flow that really worked for the show as their skills evolved toward making their first gesture films (congrats Alrik). Now with Liz, the show is leveling up with tools for...Read full review »

I've listened to this podcast on and off for years - I think the show has really evolved into a professional and honest podcast. The hosts are fun. The guests are honest. No blowhards, Hollywood gloss, or celebrity wannabes. Just honest conservation about what it means to be a regular person...Read full review »

I listen to many filmmaking podcasts. MMIH is one I look forward to. I enjoyed the old format and I enjoy the new format more and more each week. Making movies is hard, but it’s easier when you know you’re not alone. Thanks Liz and Alrik for letting us hang out with you and your guests!

I’m a filmmaker on my third feature documentary and my first docuseries. It is always great to learn more about the business and get inspiration from fellow artists. Filmmaking is very hard as I can attest to. I have four young daughters, a full time day job and make movies in my free time. You...Read full review »

I was never a podcast consumer until Timothy reached out to me about MMIH with Alrik years ago. Since then, the only podcasts I listen to are about filmmaking. I'm a fimmaker that never went to filmschool but found that by listening to podcasts like MMIH and others, you can get practical...Read full review »

I’ve been listening to this podcast since the beginning. I’ve listened to the rise of Alrik, the loss of Timothy, and the addition of Liz. They’ve been amazing tools for any filmmaker at any level with their advice, honesty, and passion for making movies. Keep it up and share all you can because...Read full review »

As a filmmaker who got started latter in life, I have to cram as much learning into whatever free time I have, whenever possible. Outside of YouTube, my holy trinity has been Masterclass, Off Camera with Sam Jones, and last, but certainly not least, Making Movies is Hard. Alrik asks great...Read full review »

This podcast is genuine, honest and comforting. I've been listening since the days of Tim and Alrik and was weary at the loss of Tim, but glad to say it kept is charm and pizzazz due to Alrik's charisma and passion. Some great guest hosts and guests and now Liz is a nice balance with...Read full review »

This podcast already was great and just keeps getting better, even in these tough times. Not just for all the superb advice and impressively non-boring shoptalk, but also for the general spirit-lift one gets from lively conversations full of honesty and humor and warmth. Clearly useful to film...Read full review »

I’m an actor and independent filmmaker, and listening to this podcast causes me to smile and nod my head in recognition more than any other, just a dude nodding and grinning in his car and muttering things to himself like “Yep.” and “I get it.” and “HUH. Well, that’s cool.” over and over like a...Read full review »

I’m thankful that this show exists, it’s a great place to hear people discussing roadblocks that maybe you yourself have gone through, see coming, or maybe even more importantly don’t see coming. The community here is great and I basically love everything about it. Excited to hear the format keep...Read full review »

Love this podcast, and love the recently increased diversity of hosts and guests. So often filmmaking podcasts are just two white, straight bros chatting about making movies (though I enjoy & listen to a ton of those too!). I miss Timothy, but the new format means we get to hear from a...Read full review »

I don’t know how these guys do it. But I know why the do it. They do it for the love of filmmaking. They do it to learn and teach. They do it to share the struggle, share the pain, share the joy, share the love they have for the creative process and social collaboration with fellow filmmakers....Read full review »

I love the Alrik & Timothy podcasts, but Alrik has bumped it up a few notches with his mix of guest-host-casters! These episodes bring a whole new energy to the podcast, providing an entertaining variety of color, depth, and experience. Also, listening to the expertise of the podcast guests,...Read full review »

Hi, been listening to Alrik and Timothy (RIP) for about a year now. I have thoroughly enjoyed nearly all of the episodes.

I really loved episode 153 with producer Jeffery Allard. Like many episodes, it puts me in the mind of the experts and shows me what it’s like to do their job.

The premise of this show is brilliant - offering an unfettered look into the world of a not-yet-but-hopeful filmmaker. As stated in episode 1, the public only gets to hear already-successful filmmakers. As a result, those of us in the trenches can rarely relate. The info and advice delivered by...Read full review »

I feel like Timothy and Alrik are good friends of mine, even though we’ve never met (is that creepy?). I appreciate how honest and humble they are about the fun and brutal pursuit of the filmmaking dream, and I can relate to just about every word they say. Congratulations on three awesome years!

I just started listening a couple of weeks ago, and am catching up as quickly as I can.
