Today we’re going to talk about “DIG!“ This was Ondi’s second film and it really put her on the map after she won the Sundance Grand Jury Prize for best feature documentary. Co-producer David Timoner, editor Tim Rush, and musician Miranda Lee Richards join in as well to discuss and reminisce on what it took to make the film.

Towards the end of the show Alex Stapleton, the director of the fantastic documentary, “CORMANS WORLD” that’s premiering this FRIDAY, DEC 16th in Los Angeles and New York comes in too!

This is a jam-packed show! So get ready for an hour of fun and incredible insight on B.Y.O.D.

BYOD is co-hosted by Ondi Timoner, director of “DIG!,” “JOIN US” and “WE LIVE IN PUBLIC,” and has the rare distinction of winning the Grand Jury Prize at Sundance twice, and Vladimir Radovanov, entertainment attorney, and executive producer of “WE LIVE IN PUBLIC.” Each week the show explores a different documentary filmmaker or aspect of filmmaking, with special guests and a live Q&A– diving deep into creative process and the business realities of producing and distributing films. Ondi and Vladimir share their insider views, opinions, and personal stories, welcoming audience participation. BYOD aims to entertain, inform, and elevate documentaries in general by bringing attention to films and film makers that deserve exposure.
