Learn How to Make Films that You're Proud Of, One Step at a Time

Welcome Back, Podcast Squad!

Today's Question:

Why do you make films? The filmmaking life can be pretty frustrating (and require a lot of sacrifice) at times, so what makes this work worth it to you? Don't worry if you can't think of anything off the top of your head—you can just share what originally inspired you to become a filmmaker :)

Before You Answer: 

Make sure to say your name and your location. (I messed up with the first episode by not asking this, so please do it this time so it's easier to give you credit for your answers and pronounce your name correctly!)

Rob's Answer: 

My name is Robert Hardy, and I'm from Denver, Colorado. I make films because I'm passionate about many different art forms, and film combines them all in a way that fascinates me. As someone who enjoys writing and making music and creating images and telling stories, filmmaking offers me the ability to express myself in ways that I wouldn't be able to do otherwise. I also happen to think that film is the most powerful and universal medium we have for telling stories, and the world needs as many uplifting, empathetic stories as it can get right now.
