IFH 037.1: Filmmaking Motivation for 2016 – Happy New Year!

Happy New Year! I have been an amazing 2015 for Indie Film Hustle. We launch five short months ago and have grown at an alarming rate. Thanks to the IFH Tribe the Indie Film Hustle Podcast has become the #1 filmmaking podcast on iTunes, just three months after launch…CRAZY!

The Indie Film Hustle Youtube Channel is closing in on over 1000 subscribers and I was able to gather over 23,000 followers throughout all the IFH social media platforms. Again I have all of you to thank.

This is a special New Year 2016 edition of the show. I want to let you know what to expect from IFH in 2016 and give you a little Filmmaking Motivation as well.

Sit back and get ready to be motivated! Keep that hustle going in 2016 and beyond.
