Podcast-orama: From The Workbook Project and Sundance

Lance Weiler has a really wonderful interview with filmmaker M dot Strange, whose animated feature 'We Are the Strange' played at Sundance last month. (Lance, a filmmaker who is building a site called The Workbook Project, even asks about the origins of M dot's nom de plume.)

So far, Lance has posted podcasts of his interviews with Ted Sarandos of Netflix, Robert Greenwald of Brave New Films, and George Ratliff, director of 'Joshua,' another Sundance movie, plus eight others. You can find them here. (Disclosure: I'm among Lance's victims.)

Sundance also has put the podcasts from most of its 2007 panel discussions on the iTunes Store for free, including the one I moderated on "Rights Licensing in the New Era of Distribution." Others include "Opportunities in Documentary Funding," "Community Voice and Social Networking," and "Mapping the New Frontier." (You'll need Apple's iTunes software, I think, to open both of those links.)
