He recently added a little one at home to the mix so in this episode we see how that has changed things for him in his business.

Michael Hunsucker is one of the innovators in the outdoor business. The show Heartland Bowhunter is one of the few shows that changed the way we view and create outdoor tv and content.

There are no jedi tricks in this podcast just some easy ways I have found to stay sharp and keep an edge.


Episode #53: ATA and Badlands Film Festival

Just got back home and unpacked from the ATA Show in Louisville over the weekend. Chris Irwin and I went out there to talk some clients and look at adding some more work for 2019. The show was awesome and I got to meet so many of the listeners of the podcast. I also got the chance to go check out the Badlands film festival. I will leave it at that. If you want to know what I thought, listen!

Episode #51: Production Class Overview (Class Feb. 22-24)

Getting a lot of questions on what is going to be covered in the class. I figured the quickest and easiest way to get the class overview to you was to record a quick podcast about it. The class is going to be customized to the people that attend. I will make sure I answer all questions are answered as well as cover all the subject you guys want covered. I guarantee you will leave this class with valuable information you wont get in other classes. This will be like no other class you have...

On this episode we talk about what he is doing now, lighting interviews, being a stringer in LA as well as covering wildfires in California.


Episode #49: Storytelling

Storytelling is a subject that most people feel is hard to talk about or hard to explain. I do not feel that way. I think it is simple. I have talked about it time and time again in short form. Who, what, when, where, why, and weather. Beginning, middle, and end. Establishing shots, and transition shots. Those are the basics and if you know how to be creative while filling these boxes you are going to be successful.


Episode #48: How not to film a deer hunt with the 8th and Tine crew.

On this episode I have two of the members of the 8th and Tine crew on to tell a story about a really poorly executed deer hunt from their early velvet season in Tennessee. Grant and Austin go into detail about all the things that went wrong on this hunt and we all put our heads together to talk through how we can prevent this from happening again as well as what all we learned from it.


Episode #47: Creating a Production Reel

Several months ago I was looking for someone to help me on a project and I was needing someone who could shoot and edit. I put out on add on the facebook page "Outdoor Filming Professionals" and I got several guys that wanted to be considered. The problem was none of them had a Production Reel showing me they knew how to do anything. Just because you have a camera and know how to roll video on it doesn't mean someone is going to hire you. You are going to need a way to showcase your work....


Episode #46: Drew Seals

This episode I get to talk to the extremely talented Drew Seals. Drew is young and hungry with a thriving business in outdoor media.

I think Drew is putting out some of the better content in the outdoor space right now and he is someone I look to when I need some inspiration or creativity. I hope you enjoy this one as...
