We wanted to get a podcast going with the participants of the class and find out what they are hoping to get out of the class. We get some good insight on where their heads are at as well as what we feel like we need to spend the most time on. We will have a follow up to this podcast coming soon.

Kyle Scott is one of my long time friends before I really even got into this business full time. Kyle is a Kentucky boy who likes basketball, but we wont hold that against him. He is now the producer for Wentz Brothers Outdoors. Carson Wentz, the QB for the Philadelphia Eagles and his brother travel all over hunting all kinds of stuff in this series. Kyle knows his stuff and we had an awesome conversation with some old stories that brought back some good memories. Hope you enjoy it.


We catch up with the Unguided Outdoors guys and talk about how they are building their Youtube Channel as well as how they are leveraging their social media platforms to gain traction in the outdoor market.


There are a ton of simple things that can improve your filming in the woods but these 5 we think are going to get you further ahead/

1. Establishing Shots
2. Talking in the field
3. Broll
4. Cut aways
5. Transitions from day to day, place to place, hunt to hunt


Sponsors are what make the world go around. They can really help a project but they can also derail one. In this episode we talk about the reason sponsors and shows in the outdoor space are the way that they are as well as ways you can mitigate their impact on your finished product.
