It took a while but we finally managed to have two guests on the show at the same time. This week we are chatting with Chandra Feltus and Malin Stennborg about all things agents and cinematographers.
The business side of any DP’s career is not the most popular topic in the world but in this episode we get to peak behind the curtain of business and hear the dos and don’ts from two experts.
Agents and representation is often shrouded in a cloud of mystery for many new people in the space and hopefully this episode clears some of that away.
The latest course went live last week and I couldn’t be more excited to get this content out in to the world and start getting feedback on the system.
The course continues the exploration of my own system for blocking and coverage that I call the BODVO system. I use it on every single scene I shoot but I haven’t shared it in great detail here on the podcast because it can get so complex.
This particular course is Volume II and it centers on the most common scenario which is the Office Scenario. The name office has nothing to do with the physical location of the scene but rather the orientation of the characters relative to one another.
Once you see the system, you can’t unsee it.
Nothing has improved my cinematography more than leaning in to this methodology and so far the feedback has been nothing short of amazing.

In this week’s Patreon Podcast I am going over all the major mistakes I made in coming up the cinematography ladder. Everything from invoicing mishaps to travel dramas, I lay out all the areas I should have know better.
The hope is you can learn from my mistakes and bypass quite a few of the awkward conversations and situations I found myself in early in my career.
