This podcast is not for you if you work in the industry and want meaningful, reasonably deep conversations. These guys are hard to listen to. I don’t know why they called this “the cinematography podcast” when neither of them are cinematographers or even have a reasonable knowledge of the craft...Read full review »

I’m not in the industry at all. Just a movie dork and love all aspects especially how movies “look.” Anyway, always interesting guests and love when they get “inside baseball” about the creative process, lenses, and the rants! Thanks guys

I thought I was going to learn more about cinematography, instead I had to sit through a conversation about show business in general with at least one person that had no idea what he was talking about. (e.g., Netflix just lost 20 million subscribers!) Then anti-elonmusk stuff, etc. Since this guy...Read full review »

A great companion to the experience of working as an AC or Cam Op for a seasoned DP. On set, you mostly get to observe their physical approach to the craft with possibly a little insight into their thought process. This podcast is great because it gives you the other side of that coin:...Read full review »

I am a current film student and love this podcast. It has given me more direction in the path I want to take in film and I’ve learned so much from you guys. I’d love to see you interview Tod Campbell on his work with Sam Esmail. Thanks guys
Sonicluva via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/09/20
I find this podcast super informative and hits on a bunch of points of interest. From gear to cinematography, to culture of cinema. As someone who going to film school is not an option, I find it a great way to keep my mind in the game while driving. Can’t wait to pop into HotRod cameras some day...Read full review »

Just listened to the Carpenter interview, which was fascinating. As a side note, I wondered to myself about the connection between director and animals: Woo and doves; Leone and dogs.
Lew in Chicago via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/03/19
I love the cinematography podcast, it’s probably the most interesting thing I listen too. That being said, I often get so inspired by the interviews that I find myself drifting off into my own ideas of films I can make, often missing half of the interview and Needing to rewind!

A really enjoyable trip with some awesome DPs. I enjoy getting to hear how they get started, and how they e developed their process.
Bobertljd via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/09/19
This podcast is hands down the best podcast for any DP to listen to if they enjoy hearing first hand from the pros who have paved the way before them. I’ve gained so much perspective and the hosts are truly engaging.

Hey! I've been tuning in for the last year and it's always a great day when you release a new episode!

Love this podcast.

This Podcast is a really great resource for anyone in the film industry or thinking about trying to get in. I wish there was something like this out when I was younger!
JoeDP via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/03/18
Great stuff! BUT match that annoying difference in audio levels! It's annoying af to have a 10 db or more difference between the two host mics. You crank it up to listen to the quieter guy and then suddenly this other guy screams at you. You're doing an audio-only thing. Pay attention to...Read full review »

Podcasts have almost replaced listening to music in the car and while exercising. I’ve been studying cinematography for a little while and listening to the pros talk about their experiences is one of the coolest things to hear. Each one has walked in my shoes before and I love hearing that they...Read full review »

This is a really smart podcast that has shown me a lot about how to improve my own cinematographic art and craft. If you make films or are interested in what goes on, I strongly suggest listening to this.

Every show delivers such great content. Must listen for anyone starting out as a DP.

What an incredible podcast. It is so refreshing to hear about the theory and aesthetics of shooting, framing, lighting etc without getting to mired in tech talk (although I enjoy that as well.) If future shows are half as good as this one, this will be a fantastic show! Keep it up.
