I've had the idea of starting a podcast for a while now, and love that I've been able to make a start with some friends at work. Speaking to the design team at Across the Pond, we often discuss things quite deeply, even just about one film we'd just seen. So it felt like a no brainer to start with a design focused podcast. We kicked off in February with our first podcast which covered Art of the Title's Top 10 Title sequences of 2014. Was a buzz to have Art of the Title and their editor tweet it and say some nice things about it.
This week we recorded our second one, this time about a personal film from Mike Brookes, our Head of Design at Across the Pond. It was really fun to hear why he made the film and what inspired him during in the process.
I'm doing all the editing and the accompanying blog post, and it is weird to hear yourself at the best of times, but when you're fumbling over your words or trying to remember that interesting anecdote you heard/read/saw on a podcast/Twitter/YouTube, you can't help but kick yourself. I have made the error of doing the podcast with a Jackhammer, which is a delicious beer, but with a 7.2% alcohol volume it hits you like a proverbial Jackhammer in about 10 minutes, so it's no wonder I'm losing my thread. (Note to self, water during, beer after).
Anyway, looking forward to doing more and branching out to some other subjects in the future.
