Join host Larry Jordan and co-host Michael Horton as they talk with:

Catherine Buresi, Co-Director, European Film Market

A Film Festival is where people go to watch films. A Film Market is where they go to buy and sell them. The European Film Market is the third-largest market in the world (following only the American Film Market and Cannes). This week, we talk with Catherine Buresi, co-Director of the Market, to learn what it is, how it works, and what filmmakers can do to make their films successful there.

Philip Hodgetts, CEO, Intelligent Assistance/p>

Philip Hodgetts is the CEO of Intelligent Assistance, and a world-class tech guru. Recently, he and Larry were talking about both the positive and negative effects Bit Torrent has on the creative process. They decided to bring their discussion on the show so you can form your own opinions. Is Bit Torrent enabling the wide-spread distribution of media, or killing the funding that makes the creative process possible? Join the Live Chat and let us know your thoughts!

Rik De Lisle, Radio Personality

Rik De Lisle was born in the States, but during his career he’s traveled from SouthEast Asia to Germany — where he has become one of the most popular radio DJ’s in Europe. In this light-hearted interview, we explore his roots in radio, how he preps for his shows, the impact new technology has on the age-old practice of entertaining people, and how doing what you love makes all the difference.

Norman Hollyn, Editor and Professor, USC Film School

Norman Hollyn is the Head of the Editing Track at the USC Film School. Plus, he’s an editor in his own right with several feature films to his credit. But the reason we invited him back to the Buzz this week is that we want to talk with him about the other side of visual story-telling; not the technology, but the craft. In this interview, we explore the aesthetics of telling stories.
