Directors Notes is a podcast dedicated to giving a voice to independent filmmakers, covering aspects of filmmaking from concept to completion. The podcast will be an opportunity for featured directors to discuss how they developed their initial ideas managing to navigate pitfalls along the way. We are doing this because we are passionate about good filmmaking and spreading the word as far as possible. Every year there are 100s of great features, shorts, documentaries, music videos, animations and art films from around the world that don’t get the exposure they deserve…it’s our job to make obscurity a thing of the past, one film at a time.
I've been writing for Directors Notes for 6 years and counting now and every year the site goes from strength to strength - regularly adding to its ever expanding audience through its interviews, Vimeo channel, Twitter feed and much more.
