The third installment of Kvibe TV’s 4-part conversation series with assistant director Salvatore Sutera is available now and if you have any interest in the differences between mainstream TV and film and the independent approach, or you’re just curious about the business side of things, you’ve got to check it out below!
Sutera is a 12-year industry veteran who cut his teeth on big-budget blockbusters like The Adjustment Bureau and Men in Black 3 as well as hit TV shows like Curb Your Enthusiasm and Boardwalk Empire.
Sutera currently works on the hit CBS show, Elementary, and in this episode, Mainstream vs. Indie Filmmaking (Ep.2 / Pt 3 of 4) – Learn Episodic TV Production, he and longtime friend/Kvibe founder Khoa Le dive a little deeper into episodic television production and how it differs from both big-budget and independent filmmaking.
If you haven’t seen the previous two parts of the series, you can check them out at the Kvibe TV page, but if you want to just jump in now, thus far, Khoa and Sutera have talked about what an assistant director actually does on set and how challenges both on set and off can affect mainstream film and video productions and those with much smaller budgets.
In Mainstream vs. Indie Filmmaking (Ep.2 / Pt 3 of 4) – Learn Episodic TV Production, they discuss the rapid pace of big-budget episodic television production and how it, in some ways, has more in common with low-budget indie filmmaking than big-budget film, the difference being that in low-budget indie film, you don’t have the same kinds of resources that you’d have access to in mainstream television or film.
But in both indie film and big-budget television production, it’s all about efficiency, and no matter what you do, you can learn a lot from that. And that’s the whole point of Kvibe TV: to connect you with various industry professionals who have real experience so that, whether you’re in film or video production or you’re just trying to build a business or career, you can learn something that will help you on your own journey.
