    suggestion A podcast that interviews guests?

    I think the market for filmmaking podcasts is fairly saturated already, so I wouldn't anticipate a huge audience for something like this. That said, Indietalk is a great platform that's been around for ages and I'm obviously pro anything that celebrates its work and history! I did actually, for...

    Animated logo?

    Hello Nate! Thanks for your kind offer, would be fun to work with you. As for the animation: I don't have any particular preferences, so long as it's not too long. Could be the label affixing itself to a bottle? Could be whiskey sloshing inside the bottle? Just a couple of seconds of motion to...

    Animated logo?

    Hi everyone! I'm looking for a logo (and an animated version of it) for a newsletter I'm planning to launch in the new year. Very simple, just want it to look like a label on a whiskey bottle with a couple of bits of relevant copy, and then an a 3-second animated version where something slightly...

    Help one of our longest running forum members get back on their feet

    As far as I'm concerned, it's up to Alcove whether he responds or not. He didn't ask for this and has no obligation to him. I'm fully aware that my $10 isn't going to make any material difference to his life; it's just a recognition of the fact that he will always have legend status round these...

    Help one of our longest running forum members get back on their feet

    I owe him far more, for the advice he's given me over the last decade (and a bit), than the few bucks I'm able to chip in at the moment. Alcove, when you see this thread, let us know what next steps you're considering. I work in audio these days and often have clients (usually in Europe but...

    crew Why is it so difficult to find collaborators for a project?

    I don't think Nate is a scammer and I certainly don't think the people who buy into his vision are scammers. I think Nate is massively – perhaps pathologically – ambitious. And ambition is very seductive and powerful in this industry, amongst indie filmmakers who hold such big dreams but such...

    crew Why is it so difficult to find collaborators for a project?

    In my time (scarcely over a decade, so pinch of salt here) doing film (and other media) I've come to have a really good eye for people who are going to succeed. They need a mixture of qualities – talent, sure, but they also have to be in the right place at the right time, have the right...

    How do we get more people to come to Indietalk?

    @Nate North I've just spent 20 minutes going down memory lane, reading the old Deathworld mansion threads. I think your last post on Indietalk a decade ago said you'd tell us the story of what happened to the Deathworld mansion one day. Could that day be today?? For those who don't remember...

    How do we get more people to come to Indietalk?

    Man, this thread has brought back some memories of the combustible glory days of Indietalk. I remember Nate pretty well...

    wanted Looking for musicians to record bits of Holst's The Planets

    Hello everyone! I'm working on a podcast – apologies, it's not a film – for which I am seeking recordings of Holst's The Planets. I'm hoping to use bits of each of the seven movements across the series. If anyone has access to any recordings from The Planets which I could use (fully credited, of...

    suggestion What do you want to see?

    FWIW there are bags of filmmaking Discords. There are tonnes of filmmaking subreddits. There are literally thousands of filmmaking Facebook groups. Indietalk is its own thing, and I like that it's still an old fashioned forum. This has some advantages – the proliferation of spam content here is...

    suggestion What do you want to see?

    Sorry to hop in here without any good suggestions, but I think a relevant question is: what do you, IT, want Indietalk to be? What's important to you? It still provides a great resource for filmmakers all around the world, even though the last decade, I guess, has seen its market share steadily...

    link The Town That Didn't Stare

    My 6-part podcast documentary – 'The Town That Didn't Stare' – is now out in its entirety. It's been really fun to work on, a bit of a shift from what I found with indie filmmaking where I struggled to get anyone to watch or review my work. The podcast has been covered in most of the UK's major...
