PUBLIC VERSION. Filmmaker Pete Ohs (JETHICA, YOUNGSTOWN) joins Adam, Joe, and Arwen to discuss his career journey and his extremely unique approach to filmmaking. From developing his own cinematic style through making videos with friends at 15 years old… to how working as an editor, a cinematographer, and a producer on various TV, short film, and feature film productions helped inform his approach to directing… to how the experience of making his first feature film (EVERYTHING BEAUTIFUL IS FAR AWAY) through the traditionally structured filmmaking process made him realize just how much he preferred the looser, more organic process that he imparted back when he was first making videos with friends as a teenager strictly for the love of making them… to how he has returned back to his approach to filmmaking using a skeleton crew of friends and writing the story as a group and as they shoot as opposed to starting with a traditional completed screenplay that the team follows… to why he prefers to start each of his productions with no set expectations… Pete’s uncommon and particular storytelling process is certainly one that will make aspiring filmmakers think outside of the box and reconsidering how they themselves approach independent filmmaking. Pete's latest film JETHICA is currently streaming on Fandor and is also available digitally.
