EP16: An update & maybe you should consider DaVinci Resolve
What up everyone! It's been a hot minute since our last episode! JC and I jumped in to chat for an hour to give y'all an update on what's been keeping us so incredibly busy, and also ended up talking about the awesome features that DaVinci Resolve has to offer as an editing platform! Enjoy
EP15: Managing work and life (or trying to)
Hey everyone! We're back with another look behind the scenes of what's been happening - as well as discussing the hot topic of work/life balance (or the lack thereof...).
EP14: How do you manage expectations for client feedback?
We're back! It's been an insane three weeks, but JC and I take some time to catch everyone up on what we've been up to - some of the new things in the works - and also talk about how to manage revision and feedback with clients. How do you make sure they don't "nickel and dime you to death" with revisions but also make sure they feel heard and that they're able to get what they're looking for?
EP13: How to help a client see the value in what you offer?
Hey everyone, welcome to episode 13! This week after JC and I give some updates on what we're working on, we answer some audience questions about our process for sound, sound design, etc. After that, we dive into the subject of how to better communicate the value of the "invisible" things that we offer that make a big difference in the work we create - but are sometimes hard to sell because they don't have as visual of an outcome. Enjoy!
EP12: How do you build an effective and invested team?
Welcome to episode 12! This week - We once again give you an update on what's the latest happenings with our creative businesses (hint - a lot!) and also dive into the subject of how to build a team of creatives that aren't just button pushers - but are genuinely invested into the work they're doing.
EP11: We should all be a "go giver" (and business updates)
We're coming at you with episode 11! Starting things off, hear and update from JC and myself on the latest things we're working on and learning - and we end up talking about the importance of being a go-giver - and sharing our knowledge and success with others. Enjoy!
EP10: How should you position yourself when you do more than one thing?
Hey fam! Welcome to episode 10. In this episode, JC and I give some updates on what's going on for each of us, and then we dive into the discussion on branding - how should you position yourself when you like to do more than one thing? We talk in-depth about JC's company, and how he might be able to create a new sub-brand specifically focused on post-production services. Enjoy!
EP9: Working with a small project budget, creatively.
We're back! Due to travel and sickness, we were out a couple of weeks - but we're excited to be back with another episode for you. This week, JC and I start off with some updates on what's new with us - and then talk about what to do when you're offered a lower budget than you want to be able to create a film project. Enjoy!
EP8: Quick decisions, challenging yourself, and behind the scenes on JC's largest project to date!
Hey Guys! We missed last week since JC was still out and I ran out of time to line up another guest... But we're back! In this week's episode, JC and I catch up on the goings on - including a look into the Bartlett Idea Co. "Createathon", discussions about when to take risks and make quick decisions - as well as getting an update and recap on the large church educational series project JC is working on! Enjoy :)
EP7: Talking narrative writing and directing (and more) with Joshua Mangrum!
Hey guys! Happy Tuesday! JC is out this week, so I reached out to my friend Josh Mangrum to see if he wanted to chat, and he graciously jumped on to talk for this week's episode :) In this episode, we talk all things writing, directing, etc - especially talking about narrative work, as that's something I'm always looking to more and more bring into the commercial work that I do. If you're interested in checking out some of Josh's work (including the film we talk about close to the end, and also Josh's podcast) - check them out at the links below!

Welcome back to another episode! I was out last time, so jumping in JC gives his update on what he's been working on, and I share a bit (ok, maybe a lot) about my recent experience with a project filming in Mexico, and the process it takes to get gear across the border legally. Closer to the end, JC shares some helpful tips and ideas on how to best deal with misunderstandings in work or life - something I think you'll all find valuable! Enjoy! -A
EP5: Working with client feedback, pre-production for a teaching series & more!
Hey all! Welcome back to another episode. This week, JC and I give some updates on projects we're currently working on, and then jump into talking about how to work with client feedback (including feedback you disagree with) - as well as a behind-the-scenes look into how JC is prepping to shoot a new teaching series. Of course as usual that's just the highlights and we touch on a whole bunch of other random stuff as well :)
How do you decide to buy vs. rent gear, our favorite (but maybe obscure) software & more!
Welcome back to another episode! This week starting things off with what's happen' for both of us - and then diving into renting vs buying gear, how to handle the finances of that - and also jumping into some audience questions about filming weddings, software and more!
Are film festivals worth it? Should you work with clients who don't have the budget? (Startups)
Hey fam! This week after JC and I recap some of the stuff we're working on, we dive into a conversation about film festivals. Is it worth entering? Why does it seem like some festival "awards" don't mean anything? After that, we also talk about how we should respond when someone we'd love to work with reaches out, but doesn't have the budget we need to make the work they're looking for. Enjoy! - Andrew
Storytelling vs. Problem Solving - How do we create work that cuts through the noise?
This week on the podcast, Andrew gives an update on what's been happening at the agency - and we dive into the subject of how we create work that isn't just following the trends. Are we over-producing things? Are we just copying what others are doing? How do we connect with customers better?
EP1: Introduction, iPads, C70, documentary editing, & hiring subcontractors
Another podcast? You know it :) John-Clay and Andrew sit down for the first-ever Andrew & JC Podcast! (working title...)
