Picture Lock PR After Show: Ron Newcomb & Mid-Atlantic Studios

midatlantic.jpeg

Well, you should be off after today, so Wednesday isn’t looking like a hump day! Happy holidays! I’ve got the After Show conversation with Ron Newcomb. He talks about the importance of being transparent with your audience, and oversimplifying while over-communicating in an effort to create clear expectations. Ron also asks me the best way to navigate the film festival world to get the best bang for your buck…aka how to ensure you’re submitting to the right fests. Sit back, relax, and enjoy this episode! Thanks for listening.

The after show is where I ask my guests two questions that cut straight to great takeaways for how to improve the PR and marketing for your production and they throw one at me. Definitely worth the time to listen #indiefilmmakers!

Picture Lock PR After Show: Director Roxy Shih

roxy shih_picture lock.jpg

I’ve got that #mondaymotivation for you with the Picture Lock PR After Show with Roxy Shih! Director Roxy Shih’s Painkillers takes a look at how far someone may go to ease their pain. Roxy and I talk about how far indie filmmakers should go to ensure their films are marketed correctly in post-production. This is a Master Class in asking the right questions, and perhaps unlocking yourself to ask questions about how your film will be treated after it has been acquired!

This After Show is a little longer than most, but it’s definitely worth the listen for all the great information we cover. Thanks for listening and supporting!

Picture Lock Radio: Ep. 100- Widows, Alex Ferrari, Roxy Shih & Celebrating 100!

Happy Friday folks! I’ve got a super special 100th episode for you guys! I have founder of Indie Film Hustle and Indie Film Hustle TV, Alex Ferrari on the show. We talk about how his love for film burgeoned into an empire along with the launch of his new streaming platform geared to help indie filmmakers. I also talk with Roxy Shih, director of Pain Killers. Roxy is a rock star. We recorded this interview a while back but since then I’ve followed her on Instagram and she dances, plays the violin, directs a film festival, directs movies, and so much more. You’ll definitely want to check out the after show that I had with both my guests next week to keep your Thanksgiving travels fun!

Since this episode will be the one to air prior to Thanksgiving, Happy Thanksgiving! In honor of this monumental episode and the holiday, I have some call-ins sprinkled throughout the show in which folks will list their top 3 Thanksgiving films. But first, Steve McQueen’s Widows hits theaters this weekend and ya’ll...I guarantee your money won’t be wasted if you go!

Picture Lock Unlocked: Ron Newcomb & Mid-Atlantic Studios

Happy Thursday folks! I’ve got another Unlocked Episode of Picture Lock for you. This is a great conversation with Ron Newcomb, indie filmmaker, producer, director, actor and much more. This particular conversation is about his latest endeavor as the founder of the Mid-Atlantic Studios. I made this particular interview an unlocked episode on the podcast simply because of the nature of it. The Mid-Atlantic Studios is a film studio based in the Mid-Atlantic Region (MD, DC, VA, WV, NC, & SC), conducting 100% of the hiring from the region. It’s their believe that if we band together, we can create a more sustainable environment for filmmaking in the region.

Ron will explain the concept further in the episode, but in short, Ron is currently doing equity crowdfunding to try and create a sustainable way for filmmakers in the region to work year round on projects that they care about. So take a listen and see if you’d like to be involved!
