The Most Important Takeaways On How To Run A Better Film Business w/ Matt & Ryan

November 20, 2017

Well, we’ve made it to episode 50, and what a ride it’s been thus far. When we started Studio Sherpas in 2015, and this podcast a year ago, we had no idea the impact that it would have on us and our own businesses.

We were driven by a desire to share our stories and knowledge to help struggling filmmakers to run better businesses and bust through obstacles that were keeping them from producing the types of films they wanted to, at the budget they wanted to. But as it turns out, we’ve ended up taking away as much as we’ve tried to give.

So in this, our 50th episode, we want to look back at some of the most important lessons that we’ve learned from both our amazing guests, and the inspiring community that Studio Sherpas has become! Whether you’re a new or long-time listener of the show, we know that you’ll find the lessons we discuss in this episode as relevant now as in the original episodes, so let’s dive in!
