What Do You Want, #DocLifer? + Conversation with The Multimedia Ninja, Bradford Rogers

For today’s episode of TDL I’m going to do something a little different. Today, I’m going to be asking you, my fellow #doclifer, some questions. I’d like to discover a little bit more about who you are, friend.

° What sorts of things are you doing to best support your #doclife?

° Are you working in the film/tv industry, while you pursue your passion of documentary filmmaking?

° Perhaps you’re quite consciously doing something entirely unrelated to video production, in an effort to make sure and never view filmmaking as work?

Let’s discuss this, shall we?


Podcast Conversation

And in our shared conversation with a doc industry guest person, we talk with the multi-talented Bradford Rogers, aka The Multimedia Ninja, among other things, about:

  • what it means to be a multimedia person
  • how/why storytelling plays a part in all of a multimedia person’s mediums
  • how the freelance filmmaker can obtain more work via Upwork.com
  • how podcasting is another way that a filmmaker can tell story

These are pieces of work that emanated from the television news station that he works at. Thanks for passing these on to us, Jonathan!!
