Ep 53 - The First 52 Episodes Represent 3.4. Million Hours of Storytelling, Living, And Creativity - Summer Break 2020

The host of the American Filmmaker Podcast, Josh Hyde, is taking a 3-week break to find work, start some new projects, and practice more tai chi.  The first 52 episodes represent 3.4 million hours of human creativity in storytelling, composing music and sound design, drawing comic books, acting, producing news, telling stories, and filmmaking in the world today.  This was calculated by adding up all of the guest's thousands and thousands of hours of creating.  The emerging filmmakers interviewed have around 10,000 hours of experience and the most experienced guests, the "story budhas,"  have around 150,000 hours of creating over 50 years.  Collectively, when you add all of the guests hours of creating together, it's around 3.4 million hours.

Go back and listen to all the episodes to learn directly from the filmmakers and discover new films to watch and filmmakers to follow.  Thank you for listening.  Please subscribe to the podcast and share it with a friend.
