“For sale. Baby shoes. Never worn.” These are the words from Ernest Hemingway’s famous 6-word short story. And they’re the impetus for today’s guest-produced and highly anticipated Radio Film School episode.
“We only give each other the top layers, the top; we dont give each other what lies beneath.” ~ Kassim Harris, Director of It Eats You Up
Robert Hardy is a filmmaker and writer who used to write for the popular filmmaking website No Film School. Robert has since left the behemoth site to start his own filmmaker resource for inspiration, Filmmakers Process. I love what Robert is doing with his site. It’s very much in line with the spirit and goals of Radio Film School–helping filmmakers become better artists by connecting with what it means to be an artist. As I read the articles on his site, I knew I wanted him to adapt one as a segment for the podcast. That’s what you’re going to hear on today’s episode.
Robert connects with director, cinematographer, colorist and 16mm film fanatic Kassim Norris. His award-winning short film “It Eats You Up” is an excellent example of what Robert calls Iceberg Storytelling. You will be immensely inspired.
