Respect The Process is a filmmaking podcast focused on directing commercials.

Dec 30, 2022

My friend filmmaker Graham Nolte claims to have taught himself claymation at nine, editing at eleven, and that he still writes on a typewriter. Graham directs funny spots via his own Philly-based production company, Comedy Theory, and has honed his craft by shooting, scripting and shooting more. It's the best way to learn, in my opinion, and i am sure Graham agrees. Graham and I chat about his journey and forging a path as a relatively new filmmaker in the commercial space. Enjoy!
