The Optical Podcast

Movies that we've featured so far on The Optical podcast, where we revisit the earliest issues of Cinefex magazine, talking about the movies, people, and techniques that they wrote about.

In the podcast, we talk to people worked on the films, and people who love movies, and try to have a fun time doing it.

We'll try to list upcoming movies here too, so you can add them to your watchlist and follow along!
