Game of Practical Effects and Indie Films

This week we have Mariah and John Johnson on the podcast to talk about John's indie films and projects (all 198! of them) and Mariah's AMAZING makeup FX. Ethan and Nathan also spend some time discussing their favorite, and not so favorite, practical effects in movies. We also take a brief ride into the Spoilerverse for the Game of Thrones finale.
