How to Become a Filmmaker (Ep. 159)

Mayer Adelberg
Who says you need to wait for college to build professional-level skills? Mayer Adelberg, creator of the web series Synesthesia, certainly doesn’t.

Making solo YouTube videos is already hard enough, but Mayer found the creative fuel to successfully Kickstart his passion project complete with actual film crews and casting, all while still in high school.

If you’re interested in filmmaking yourself, or you just want to know how to find the drive to chase your goals sooner than that elusive someday, give today’s episode a listen.
