Keeping the Atlanta film scene vibrant and healthy hinges on bringing new people, specifically the next generation, into the area. We have a lot of momentum going but true long-term success depends on the future and what we do with it right now.
We previously had Georgia State's Elizabeth Strickler on and she discussed all the great stuff the Georgia Film Academy is doing for film education. But on an individual level, what are universities and educators bringing to the table? Turns out, way more than we knew!
Jeff Marker from the University of North Georgia tells us all about the program at his school and what they're focusing on. We also discussed the TV shows Molly's been working on and give advice on how to decide if working for free is worth it.
