Captain Marvel made a huge splash not only at the box office, but in the hearts and minds of audiences - and continues to do so. In this episode of Wine Wednesday, sponsored by Stowe Story Labs and Steele Wines, Felicity and Max talk about the effect of film criticism, and the need for much more balance where voice, opinion, and perspective is concerned (using Brie Larson's take and perspective as a strong, positive example).

Remember, Felicity Wren and Max Timm always have open Q&A during every Facebook Live broadcast, so you should tune in when they broadcast their next live chat. Even though most broadcasts focus on a particular subject, every writer is welcome to ask anything they like at any time. Felicity and Max will do their best to give you a straight and honest answer.

We can, however, assist you if you wish to find out more information regarding ISA events, contests, or consulting offers. Just reach out to info@networkisa.org and we will be happy to help.

I'm back! It's been far too long since I released a solo podcast, but I'm excited to bring The Craft back. I ope you enjoy these episodes as much as I enjoy recording them. My plan is to release short, quick, and easy to listen to recordings on topics that I feel all writers should know, but also based on questions I get all the time.

This episode is a rundown of not only the difference between agents and manager, but whether or not you need one. It's a loaded question, but a good one to ask...so, with that, enjoy my latest episode of The Craft. If you have questions or wish to work with me one-on-one, you can email max@thestoryfarm.org and we can figure out what the best option is for you. Meanwhile, you can visit www.TheStoryFarm.org for more information.

Enjoy!

Hello all. For our fourth episode Jay Ledbetter and myself discuss, or perhaps, more lament, the state of the superhero genre. As usual we start off by discussing the best and the worst of what we’ve seen recently and then we get into a back-and-forth about what we like in our superhero films and what we find lacking.

We talk about Logan, the last Hugh Jackman performance as Wolverine and what it means for the X-Men franchise and where they can go from next. There is a spoiler section so be on the lookout for that. The highlight of the show, though, is when we fawn over the FX TV show, Legion, which is about a mutant with incredible psychic powers. The show resembles nothing like an atypical superhero narrative, and we act like giddy school girls who just got asked to the prom by the football captain about it.

As usual, we really, seriously, like super duper mean it, when we say we thank you so much for all your support. Thanks for following us on Twitter and keeping Film Inquiry the best film magazine on the planet. Also, just a huge shout out to all the writers and contributors and their immense passion. You kids rule.

There is a lot to know about the film festival world, and who better to discuss the ins and outs than the festival director of HollyShorts, Daniel Sol? In this interview with the ISA's Max Timm, a deep look is given into how festivals work select their films, what it means to be Academy eligible, and how you should approach short films and festivals.

Enjoy, and stay tuned for more Curious About Screenwriting podcasts with Max and ISA-affiliated podcasts.
