22 - Matthew Hankins - Approaching Films as Art and the Importance of Collaboration

"You aren't influenced later in life, you're inspired." - Matthew Hankins

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays, Santa Chris here, Bonsai Chris is tending to his bonsai tree, which is in desperate need of a trimming. Last night, I was filling Bonsai Chris' stocking with small squares of organic, paleo friendly, non-chocolate-chocolate-covered cashew-butters when I noticed that someone (perhaps Bonsai Nick) had already placed a gift inside Bonsai Chris' stocking. Why, it was a freshly-baked, ready to serve bonus episode of the MAKE IT podcast.

A podcast with guest Matthew Hankins, who has been in the film business since 1991 as a Sound Engineer. He's worked on television series like Tiny House Hunters, short films like Generation Mixed Tape, and feature films like Crazy All These Years, Wild Man, and All Light Will End.
