The Media Futurists Podcast has completed its two-part series – thanks so much for joining us for the ride! Here’s a bonus episode to express our appreciation: a Q&A with Adam Ravetch from Arctic Bear Productions.

Did our VR series make you want to know more about VR filmmaking? Adam is a VR cinematographer who specializes in underwater wildlife films – we ask him real questions from film/media students and community members about his work and the fun techy world of VR.

PODCAST: Confessions of a Gamer’s Girlfriend – Alexandra Kirr

What do you do when your boyfriend’s gaming obsession starts leveling up? You make a webseries, of course!

The YouTube webseries “Confessions of a Gamer’s Girlfriend” was born on a ladies’ wine night, and the hilariously relatable episodes are based on creator/lead actor Alexandra Kirr’s real life with her gamer boyfriend. Listen to this podcast episode to hear about internet content-creation and gaming culture. Fun fact: the whole webseries was filmed in a single day!

“People are in different cultures, different countries, but we are all universally connected by certain things…it’s fascinating to watch, that our little video game series can touch on some of those topics.”

– Alexandra Kirr

PODCAST: Tech Bettys – Mary McGloin

The future is female!

It’s hard being a woman in a male-dominated field like tech, so our next featured internet creator is here to bring a much-needed (and humorous) eye to workplace sexism. On this episode of the Media Futurists Podcast, we sit down with Mary McGloin (pictured left), creator of the webseries “Tech Bettys.” Listen below to hear about how female-driven media can bring people together to laugh a little, and encourage more gender-inclusive workplaces while we’re at it!

Visit newmediafilmfestival.com to learn more – the 10th annual fest kicks off TODAY!

“I think once people observe something as a viewer…you’re able to sort of step away and see ‘I see this behavior now, and I do have this behavior at work.'”
