This week on the show, filmmaker Shaun Colón takes us on a deep dive into the world of documentary filmmaking.

We chat at length about his debut documentary feature: A Fat Wreck - a 3 year long DIY project that found incredible success with film festivals and fans alike, even generating interest from the Sundance Institute. Building off of this success, Shaun moved into production on his second documentary feature (Age Of Audio), which features interviews with Kevin Smith, Ira Glass and other monumental voices in the podcasting space.

Over the course of our discussion, Shaun outlines his process for financing, producing, and releasing his documentaries using his own DIY tactics, and shares a roadmap for how others can do the same.
