The Podcast

NO-BUDGET FILMMAKING

The Gilded Cinema motto – “we believe in cinema” came to be from our desire to reignite true the spirit of independent filmmaking in the wake of a mega studio boom.

My podcast, the No-Budget Filmmaking podcast, is about the art of making films no matter how small the budget.
