East Side Podcast


Ben Barnett-Founder/Director-Philadelphia Independent Film Festival

February 11, 2019

This was a very interesting podcast. Weeks back I posed a question on Instagram. 

"Is there truly ever a present moment in time, or is it constant future?"

I wanted have a podcast with a couple people to discuss perceptions of time.  I received a DM an hour later. I clicked on the profile and it was the IG for the Philadelphia Independent Film Festival

I had to do a double take. I responded and quickly learned I was speaking with the founder and director of the P.I.F.F. Ben Barnett! Well that through me for a bit of a loop. I reached back out and posed, "Why don't we intertwine the concept of time into film and media?" Ben also liked that idea. We set a date and had a rough location in mind. 

Sunday came and unfortunately we had to bounce from building to building. We were out of options and started to set up in a hallway in the U.O.A. wing of the Merriam Theater. Luckily a student on the music production floor ran into us and said she had an open room for us to use. What a day. Exciting, fun, interesting and memorable. I hope you guys enjoy this as much as I did to conduct it. Ben is a cool dude and a great person to talk to.
