Crossing the 180

The Filmmakers Podcast that Breaks All the Rules

The newest creation from FSB host/creator Ron Dawson, this is to filmmakers what F-Stop Beyond is to photographers. Since Ron is a filmmaker himself, he could no longer fight the urge to have the same kind of in-depth, poignant and personal conversations with professionals in his industry. And like FSB, guests run the gamut from the obvious to the obscure. Established professionals in Hollywood like X-Men producer Ralph Winter, or Terminator: Salvation DP Shane Hurlbut; Book of Eli co-director Albert Hughes; 24 DP Rodney Charters; to social media juggernauts like international cinematographer and HD DSLR guru Philip Bloom; to amazing short film filmmakers like fellow Atlanta local Brandon McCormick of Whitestone Motion Pictures; and even wedding and event filmmakers like wunderkind and USC film grad Kevin Shahinian. Many more are already in the can and/or in the works.

In the future we hope to bring you more exciting, informative, and insightful programming. If you have suggestions for guests on any of the shows, feel free to email and tell us who, what show, and why. Be sure to include links to any websites that will help us learn more about the person.


Thanks for tuning in.

    Been listening to your shows for well over a year now. I do like you interviews with photographers and film makers. I had an issue with the Rodney Charters one however. Like the man, love his work but the softball he lobbed at you was totally missed. Referencing New Zealand like it was some kind of innovative mecca of film making was quite irritating. There is and has been a Nation Tax incentive there for years. Tax subsidies is the only reason film making flourishes there. The population of that country wouldn’t ever support a motion pictures industry if it weren’t for the government. Just like Canada. I’ve been a focus puller and now set still photographer for almost 30 years and it just pisses me off when the tax subsidies are never mentioned anymore. (Canada especially) Actors, DP’s and Directors can travel at will but 99% of crews are stuck at the mercy of other countries give backs.
    Please keep up the good work. I listen to everything you make with great pleasure.

    You should try and interview Jack Green ASC, Bob Primes ASC and Phil Caruso (Stills). All three I’ve worked with in the past and they would interview well. Bob is the bomb with new digital tech, he use to shoot 30 Something. Jack was/is Clint’s cameraman and directs too, Phil is crazy and funny, he was the wedding photographer in the movie Casino. All three have a credit list on IMDB as long as your arm.

    Take care.
