In episode seven of the Slate & Lens podcast, Kim Best talks about being a one-woman show. She has shot, edited, and distributed more than 40 short films following her career in print journalism.

Kim has traveled a lot as a filmmaker, and drops knowledge on how to do that without losing your sense of humor – especially when things don’t go according to plan.
