Film Florida, the state’s only trade association that represents all sectors of the film, television, production and digital media/tech industry, has launched a new podcast series that will highlight the people and stories that make-up the multibillion-dollar industry in Florida. Episodes of the Film Florida Podcast are available through Apple iTunes, Google Play, and the Film Florida Website.
“The people we are highlighting helped shape the industry in Florida,” Bonnie King, President of Film Florida said. “Florida has such a deep history in the film, television and digital media industry and we wanted to tell these important stories and there was no better way than asking our industry pros to share these experiences.”
The Film Florida Podcast launched with the release of the first two episodes; Michelle Hillery, Deputy Film Commissioner for the Palm Beach County Film & Television Commission and Lori Wyman, Casting Director and owner of Lori Wyman Casting. Future episodes include interviews with local film commissioners, educators, industry professionals and actors who all have important roles in helping grow and strengthen the industry in Florida. New episodes will be released every Tuesday. Podcasts range from 20 to 40 minutes and are available on mobile and/or desktop devices.
“Our goal is to give our listeners an authentic, insider’s view from the leaders themselves who have forged their way through this industry,” John Lux, Executive Director of Film Florida and host of the podcast said. “Every week as I prepare for the interview I learn something new about each and every person or subject. If people enjoy the podcast half as much as I’ve enjoyed the conversations, it will be a big success. We hope people will subscribe, download, rate and review the podcast on their respective platform.”
