Shot/Reverse Shot: Episode 2 - The Future

After the first episode proper of Shot/Reverse Shot proved to be a resounding success, in that we actually managed to record it and release it to wider world, we settled down for Episode 2 - though, if you count the pilot which we recorded as The Martini Shot, the episode that we recorded which was lost due to a technical fault, and that Episode 1 was split in half, you could argue that this is really Episode 5 - in which we decided to talk about The Future, meaning images of the future in cinema, the year ahead and the future of cinema in general. So it's pretty packed.

Our conflicting schedules meant that Adam, Joe and myself couldn't all be in the same room at the same time for the recording session, so we decided to split it up. The first 45 minutes consist of Joe and I talking about forthcoming films, then visions of the future in films like Starship Troopers and Alien. I then step aside and let Joe, Adam and Alex Rowland of Front Row Reviews talk about the future of cinema itself. I'm biased, obviously, but I think this a really very good episode that comes closest to realising the potential of what we want the podcast to be than any of the others we have done so far.
