How to Raise Your Filmmaker IQ with John Hess

Today on the show we have director, Youtuber, and founder of the legendary Filmmaker IQ John Hess. I have been a huge fan of John’s for quite some time. The videos he creates for Filmmaker IQ are, by far, some of the best and most informative film education on Youtube.

Here’s John’s explanation of what Filmmaker IQ is.

Filmmaker IQ (which also goes by the aliases Who?, FilmmakerIQ.com, and FIQ to evade debt collectors) is worshiped by no less than five monotheistic religions on Earth despite their petulant childish behavior, persistent meddling in the space-time continuum, and clear bipolar disorder. FIQ is the largest black hole of film knowledge in the universe.

With over 3.4 billion courses on subjects such as Ways to successfully acquire both armrests at a movie theater, Why do all the evil people in Star Wars have a British accent? and Martin Scorsese’s Eyebrows. FIQ’s video lectures are hailed by educators, non-educators as well as people who are against the concept of education on moral grounds.

John and I geek out over cameras, post, and filmmaking in general. If you haven’t watched his videos you are missing out. They are a must for any serious filmmaker. Enjoy my conversation with John Hess.
