My guest today is Jason Aron. Jason is a successful director and cinematographer who has made the leap into podcasting. He has done some fabulous documentary and live stream work which has prepared him for the standard podcast format. The show is called Jason Aron Manifest and is primarily focused on the behind-the-scenes aspect of film and other entertainment projects. It is relatively new with only ten episodes, but Jason is working hard to make sure that number is just a jumping off point.
