FatFreeFilm is the original independent film podcast. Joel Marshall and Kamala Lopez interview filmmaking professionals in about their filmmaking careers and techniques. These are in-depth personal interviews often done at the person’s home or office. We do this because we believe that filmmakers should be able to learn from one another. We also want young people to know all the different jobs available to them in the film, television and multimedia business and how prepare oneself to work in entertainment. We have been lucky enough to interview some of the most accomplished film and television professionals as well as some of the most innovative new talents. Interviews so far have included: Peter Bogdanovich, Leonard Nimoy, Arthur Hiller, Henry Jaglom, Stewart Stern, Karen Black, Tom Rolf, Patricia Arquette, Bruce Campbell, Thomas Jane, Peer Oppenheimer and many others. Please feel free to explore our catalog either here or on iTunes.
Filmmaker Taki Oldham talks about his film The Billionaire’s Tea Party. Joel interviews Taki at the National Conference for Media Reform in Boston, which is a conference for those concerned about internet freedom. Taki explains how he was able to make this feature film almost completely on his own and have it shown on television and in theaters, while contributing to the political discourse of the times. Topics discussed are using digital phones, waivers, establishing shots, vox pops and room tone.
