Filmmaking Footnote: The Podcast for Filmmakers and Film Production

In each episode, Producer Michael Hall dives into filmmaking and production terminology to help you understand how best to apply to your project. He also shares tips and tricks so you can be ahead of the curve to help make your project the best it can be. In each episode. Michael explores why having a good filmmaking vocabulary can help you make your filmmaking dreams come true. As Robert Kiyosaki said, "In school, lawyers learn the vocabulary of law, medical doctors learn the vocabulary of medicine, and teachers learn the vocabulary of education... Change your vocabulary. Change your life." A good vocabulary enriches your life and supports you in moving forward with your dreams. Thoughts become words. Words become actions. Actions become patterns. Patterns become you. Because words are a pivot point between thoughts and actions, the words that you use can have a surprisingly profound impact on making your dreams a reality.
