Beyond Your Imagination is back!

At the end of 2021, I wasn’t sure if this podcast was dead or not, so I left it open until I got the spark for something new. I love movies—making and watching them, talking with filmmakers—and after a brief conversation with a good friend about podcasting gear, the new format burrowed its way into my brain. One guest for the entire season unpacking different areas of the filmmaking process. So, here we are, are you ready for more?

Beyond Your Imagination is a podcast that celebrates the kick-ass do-it-yourself spirit of independent film and those who tell stories beyond their imagination. Season 2 begins on October 31st, 2023, featuring special guest Ryan Erlandsen of Marble Mountain Films.

In each episode, we will unpack an area of Ryan’s approach to filmmaking, from his origin story as a filmmaker and why he loves making horror films to collaboration, creative financing, and how he manages multiple projects. We will record each conversation on location in the cabin he built in his backyard, specifically for his horror projects.

In the meantime, check out the podcast’s first season, which features conversations with independent filmmakers, composers, film lovers, animators, and sound designers.
