Unique Perspective on Filmmaking
As a beginning filmmaker, it can be difficult to find relatable instruction on the subject. Often, when people become proficient at their craft, they lose sight of the issues that face a beginner in the field.
Although by know means novices, the duo at MMiH are still early enough in the game that they haven't lost touch what it is like to be a novice.
Their approach isn't necessarily instructional as it is sharing their experiences as they navigate the world of filmmaking in their own lives.
I actually learn more from them than I do from any other podcast on the subject. If you are a beginning filmmaker, I urge you give these guys a listen.

How to make a film from beginning to end!
I really enjoy the content and the interviews the show's creators do with other working and aspiring directors. They talk about budgets, common pitfalls, dealing with producers, and areas I had no idea about. How do you market your film? What can you expect to with a script, how to get people to keep working, having realistic expectations and more. I had to add this to my list because the information and knowledge you get is fantastic.
