Philip Gilpin is the Founder and CEO of Catalyst Stories, the home of the Catalyst Content Festival. Our host, Cirina Catania, is on the Advisory Committee for that festival and she wrangled Philip for a live stream to a theatre of young filmmakers in Lake Forest, Illinois. The information was so valuable that we thought our listeners might appreciate hearing the information that he had to share.

If you are planning to pitch or distribute one of your episodic projects, you need to listen in! Thank you to Cirina and Philip for sharing this with us.
