In this week’s podcast we sit down with filmmaker Peter John Ross to discuss the changing landscape of the local film community. “Ross” tells us a bit about how he first got involved in film production, describes some of the existing resources and support groups for aspiring filmmakers, and also provides a preview of what we can expect to see at this year’s Cowtown Film Series event coming up on December 3rd & 6th.

    I love the idea of this but hate the name. Why does it have to be “Cowtown”. I guess I just figured artists would be the strongest voices against this stereotype.

  • I can’t say I’m a huge fan of events named “cow” anything either… but aside from the personal issue with the name, the event sounds like a lot of fun. I’m considering going. ;)

    I totally agree, Walker. Definitely checking this out. I have made a lot of videos, but nothing I would call a film. I want to learn more about narrative filmmaking and this seems like an event to meet some people who know what’s up.

  • In actuality, the name is a pun of sorts. We’re considered in the “fly over zone” and not taken seriously by the industry, even though technologically we’re just as advanced as any company in NYC or LA.

  • Yeah, the trailer looks like a pretty good indication of high quality work. I’d love to see these types of locally made films more widely supported and widely shown. :D
