Original Ideas Recycled Material
In entering this contest I have made the hugest efforts to prove I am original and my studio makes original films. For example, this hilarious one:
The Most Original Hardest Working Film Studio
Is it easy being original? That is the question all artists are presented with. The answer does not preclude you from pursuing a career in art, but your feeling about that answer does. If you feel it is hard to be original but you don't care and you can push on and be an artist anyway, then the life of art maybe for you. If you feel it is easy being original and impossible to fake who you are and you must pursue art, then you too may be destined for art. But what then about the current state of art, where trends and the popular techniques and topics are rewarded over originality? What become of those of us who still want to make our original art? Will we fade into nothing.
Explaining the Timeline of My Podcast Documentary
So now that we know in Parts One and Two the "who" of what I was looking to talk to in making this documentary, let us move onto what I was going to ask them.
Explaining My Podcast Documentary
The issue we talked about in part 1 of the I Podcast Too production explanation was "why make a movie about podcast?" In this we'll talk about "who makes podcasts."
Explaining the Production
So I'd like to start with the "why" of this movie. Why make a movie about podcasts? Let's start with the fact that it is an original idea. There have obviously been a few movies about podcasts (more than a few if you take the stance that the failed Seeso featured many live action/video versions of existing podcast. However, that would start us down the road of all sorts of spinoffs of podcasts like Homecoming etc.). WOAH! See, this is the issue with the discussion of podcasts; read the parenthetical in that last sentence. Really read it. Like what am I even saying? Why has the conversation about podcasts turned so quickly into very specific productions. The issue is that people knowledgable about podcasts know so much; some would say too much. We are very into the state of podcasting. Most new media creators are very up on their field because of how much it updates.
