Cindy Freeman – Host/Producer

Cindy Freeman moved to Los Angeles from San Diego in 2009 to pursue a career in the film industry. Upon her arrival in LA she immediately began working with producer Jenna Edwards to create behind-the-scenes content for Jenna’s feature film April Showers. Cindy also directed the behind-the-scenes content creation for Jenna’s film In the Darkness. It was while Cindy was working with Jenna that she was inspired to create the Film Method podcast.

Cindy has worked on a number of independent films as a production assistant and 2nd A.D while in Los Angeles and in July of 2010 she began working at Dreamworks Animation as a production coordinator.

Prior to moving to LA she produced a travel documentary, See Girl Go and a short film, Drips through her production company Soonami Productions.

Jenna Edwards- Co-Host/Producing Advisor

Jenna Edwards began her film career in Minnesota where she was signed on as talent with Easter Hailey. Quickly after being signed Edwards was hired by the agency as a full time employee giving her a head-start on her Hollywood education. After two years of rising through the Minnesota film community Edwards made the move to Los Angeles.

Soon after Edwards moved to Los Angeles she was hired by Agent Jamie Ferrar. It was while Edwards was working for Ferrar that she developed an interest in the casting process, before long she had moved from talent agencies to working in casting with such industry leaders as Sally Steiner (Fresh Prince of Bel Air, Boy Meets World), Barbie Block (JonasPepper Dennis) and Allison Jones (Super Bad, The Office). During this time Edwards was also able to gain valuable production experience working on shows such as Buffy the Vampire SlayerMalcolm in the Middle, and working with studios like Disney, MTV, FOX and CBS.

After several years of successfully navigating her career through the Hollywood studio system Edwards made the leap to independent film with her first feature April Showers. After her success with April Showers, Edwards formed Mattoid Entertainment with partners Jeremy McGovern and Andrew Robinson where they made, In the Darkness, the first narrative feature to ever premiere on Hulu.com.  Most recently Edwards made her way back to Nebraska, where she shot April Showers, to team up with some new filmmakers on a comedy film called Trunk’d.

    Today… was one of the saddest days of my life. I tuned in while at work to see if their were any new Film Method podcasts, and discovered there was – but sadly it was the last. ** Sigh ** Three years is a long time to stay committed to something (just ask my therapist). I commend you on a job well done! I am thrilled you are jumping off into new adventures, but sad this podcast will be no more. However, I stand ready myself to jump right in to your workshop, Jenna! And Cindy, I am crossing my fingers for your success with “The Crew.” Live the Dream! Thanks a heap, you too!!

    Yes, very sad times. I still do not know why. I have the last show on my podcast ready to listen. But this is a big surprise…
    Cindy you made the best filmmaking podcast on the entire internet in the history of podcasts to this date. I hope and wish you’ll reconsider a come back sooner than later. I ‘have’ to understand, but it is very sad because Film Method had become my favorite podcast and/or radio show.

    So sad… 🙁

    PS I left you guys and excellent review on iTunes some months ago… ^_^
