Zacuto Live on Facebook

Every Wednesday at 11am CST

Zacuto Live is a weekly Facebook show covering subjects that are important to us as filmmakers and content creators. As always, we hope our programs will inspire and inform you. We’ll have some interview and educational episodes with incredible guest talent. And some shows that focus on gear tutorials and cameras. We’ll be bringing back shows like FilmFellas and Critics in this new Live format.

We’ll have DP’s, producers and directors discussing everything from new equipment to scriptwriting, budgeting, directing, producing, lighting, working with actors or anything you want! Feel free to email guest suggestions and/or show ideas to and we’ll find the talent and produce those shows for you.
