After what must seem like an interminable hiatus, the Tohubohu Producer Podcast has returned! For our inaugural “relaunch” episode, hosts William R. Coughlan and Bjorn Munson reintroduce ourselves, discuss what we’ve been watching lately, point out some upcoming Tohubohu-related events, and jump right into our first featured topic: The top ten essentials for a 48 Hour Film Project shoot. So hurry up and visit the podcast home page — tohubohu.tv/podcast — and subscribe to the feed, so you’ll be sure to get new episodes delivered to you as soon as they go live! Because moving forward, we’ll be broadcasting on a monthly basis (or at least that’s the plan). Now, if we’re going to fill up that much time, you know we’re going to need content! So if you’ve got any suggestions for us (or feedback on the podcast itself), drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Now, I know you’re all going to be listening to that episode right away, right? So you’ll have all the latest news… but just to be on the safe side, I’ll cover a few of the highlights here as well. First of all, the Maryland International Film Festival was a big success. In addition to a screening of our film “Green House,” highlights included the features White Knight, Gods and Generals, Narc, and The A-Team (with directors Jesse Baget, Ron Maxwell, and Joe Carnahan in attendance) and some really compelling short films, including Best Animation winner “Prayers for Peace” and Best Short (and Audience Award) winner “God and Vodka.”
Coming up this month, “Touched by a Lawyer” will be screening at the Alexandria Film Festival. The festival starts this Thursday and runs all weekend — our screening is Friday evening at the Athenaeum, and tickets are available via the official festival site, alexandriafilm.org. (Hey, if you think hearing me talk about film on the podcast is awesome, just wait ’til you hear me in person!) As a special bonus, the aforementioned short “God and Vodka” will also be shown at our screening; definitely worth the price of admission. And on the 19th, the TIVA Peer Awards ceremony will be taking place at the National Press Club. In addition to recognizing some of the best in audiovisual production in the mid-Atlantic region, there will be a special commemoration of the tenth anniversary of the 48 Hour Film Project (including a short film with footage from the crew that followed our team around on our “Touched by a Lawyer” shoot). Tohubohu has several pieces in contention for awards (not to mention pieces from some of our frequent collaborators), so we’d love to see some friendly faces in the audience — tickets are available at peerawards.org!
That’s it for now — we don’t want to keep you any longer, since I’m sure you’re all eager to go and set up your podcast subscription. Enjoy, and we hope to see many of you soon!
