Netflix made another movie.
Film Tank deals with quarantine by viewing a classic jailhouse picture.
Film Tank goes to the beach! And catches on fire, because this movie is sizzlin’.
Our first episode recorded during the COVID-19 pandemic, and our first episode about a pandemic! Enjoy the welcome distraction from the current state of the world.
In a way, aren’t all podcasts about invisible people? Just lingering voices in the back of your mind that appear to come from the same room you’re in…
Film Tank sits down for a deadly game of chess with an old friend.
If you had… one take.
And one cinematographer.
To seize all the Oscars you ever wanted.

His palms are sweaty, knees weak, arms are heavy.

A line was missed, reset, start all over now!
Sam pulls me back to reality, shouts “Deakins you’re my O.G.”
Oh, there goes a lighting rig.
I’m so mad, but not giving up that easy, no
“Reset the shot, we need those Oscar votes!”
It don’t matter, he’s dope, one of the D-P GOATS

You better lose yourself in the shot, ride its flow,
You own it, you better never let it go
You only get one take, do not miss your mark on “go!”
This opportunity comes once in a lifetime, yo
