Postcards from... the podcast booth!

Hey, Lucas Tomoana here. As some of you may have heard, I’ve started a podcast. With my love for puns I decided to call it "Cinemapodgrapher". I started this to help out intermediate level shooters and the younger generation. Gen Z is online and I think it’s important we utilise different platforms to reach out, share information and help them become tomorrow’s shooters. I’ll admit it was daunting to put myself out there, but I do want to contribute to this industry and I’m not one to shy away from a challenge. It’s been an up-and-down time for many of us, so this is a time where we need to band together and help each other out. One of the great things about our Queensland branch has been our camaraderie and sharing of information. So I hope in that Queensland spirit, this podcast can help out a few people, no matter where they are from. If you know of any people looking for advice feel free to direct them to the podcast or give me a message. You can find Cinemapodgrapher on most podcast platforms. There are new episodes every Monday and Friday. Hang in there Queenslanders, let’s stick together and we’ll be okay!

Yours truly,
Lucas Tomoana
