This week we have a Thanksgiving holiday special episode of Radio Film School that will give you a profound outlook on life and your art.
Growing up as a kid, one of my favorite Thanksgiving Day pastimes was watching “The Wizard of Oz” on TV with my mom and brother. (Largely because I was hopelessly infatuated with Dorothy.) This week we have a special episode of the show where we look at the history of that MGM classic. We’ll hear fun stories from me and Sky City Haya producer Thom Wineland about our experiences with that movie; and most importantly, friend of the show Brandon McCormick of Whitestone Motion Pictures gives us a profound and poignant lesson based on the dark origin story of the Tin Man.
