Such interesting conversations!
Really appreciate Kevin’s perspective and willingness to chat with the people in the industry he critiques. It’s rare to hear such friendly conversations between parties of differing perspectives
A ‘must read’ podcast
Possessing a camera doesn’t constitute being a filmmaker. This is ‘one giant leap’ a long time coming for the world of Christian visual storytellers.
I listened to the whole thing!
I listened to the whole thing! Had my attention the whole time. Great conversation between Kevin and Alex!
I’m so happy this conversation finally happened. Great to see Alex isn’t stuck up or oblivious to criticism, and I’m glad Kevin challenged him on so many things, it was such a good discussion. Both of them have a good sense of humor. Can’t wait for more podcasts like this.
