I’d like to share this endless list with you, so you don’t have to read every Podcast Education website like I did!
Recently I was invited to present to a collection of curious emerging filmmakers (via the Women in Screen Lab through the Australian International Screen Forum) on the topic of Audio Storytelling, with the focus on filmmakers using podcasting as a way to compliment & creatively establish proof of concept & IP of their work. And I gathered the links together here for the filmmakers, but wanted to share with you too, for having an established audience (however big or small or niche) can be beneficial to you, your vision and your potential investors.
So let’s get to it!
