This is a special edition of TENNESSEE FILMMAKER: THE PODCAST! Wednesday, July 27 the Knoxville Film Festival 7-Day Shootout Filmmaking Competition Kick-off event took place where 31 team leaders gathered to choose their genre and get instructions for the competition. We recorded the event for the podcast. Local film celebrities Jeff Delaney and Jacob Boyd were our special hosts for this podcast providing play-by-play commentary as the events unfolded (honestly, they did a lot of rambling in a golf match announcer sort of way - but its fun). Don't miss this one. It's a hoot!
