Circle Take Podcast
Our very first podcast
Here’s the very first episode of Circle Take recorded over a year ago with filmmaker, technologist and good friend Steven Bradford. We talk about modern filmmaking and how it relates to digital marketing. In subsequent episodes, we varied our focus to include strategists and implementers or creators of video and digital marketing.

Stephen Bradford is a graduate of the USC School of Cinema, and as a working DP, cinematographer and a very creative guy. Besides all of this, he’s been a very dear friend for a long time.
