Join host Larry Jordanas he talks with:

Catherine Buresi, Co-Director, European Film Market

Last week, we spoke with Catherine Buresi, co-director of the European Film Market, about the difference between a Film Festival and a Film Market. (A Market is where filmmakers go to sell their films.) The European Film Market is the third-largest film market in the world, running next month in Berlin, Germany. This week, we talk with her about the specific programs they have to help filmmakers make the most of their sales opportunities.

Marilee J. Potthoff, Director of Community Education and Outreach, House Ear Institute

Do your ears ring? Do you have to ask people to repeat themselves? Do you work in a noisy environment? Anyone working with sound is risking hearing impairment and we’ve invited Marilee J. Potthoff, Director of Community Education and Outreach at the House Ear Institute to give us some guidance on everything from how to measure risk to picking the right headphones. http://www.hei.org

Kristin M. Frascione, Free-lance Editor

Ever wondered what it would be like to work at a network like National Geographic? Kristin M. Frascione has over twenty years of experience in the film and video business, as an editor on both non-linear digital (including AVID, DV Express, AVID Symphony, Final Cut Pro and Media 100), linear and non-linear analog systems. She has worked on award-winning documentaries, dramatic films, and industrials for clients including National Geographic, the Discovery Channel, HGTV, and the Smithsonian. We have lots of questions for her about deliverables and schedules on a network reality/documentary show.

Jonathan Handel, Entertainment Labor Reporter, Hollywood Reporter

He covers entertainment labor for the Hollywood Reporter and both labor and legal issues for The Buzz. Jonathan Handel, Of Counsel at Troy/Gould in Los Angeles, returns with a look at the rumored merger between SAG and AFTRA, the upcoming Writers Guild negotiations, and other “gossip from the guilds.” Cool stuff – don’t miss it!
