On this episode of Pathfinder we uncover what makes comics such an effective storytelling tool. Going beyond super heroes and capes, what makes a panelled page stand apart from just the written word.
This episode on Pathfinder there is more than meets the ear. Put on your headphones to immerse yourself in just how much of your perception in film is thanks to the sounds that surround you.
Following on from last week's episode of Pathfinder we document the creation of Colin Levy's short film Skywatch. This is a story of how sometimes you need to give something up to make things happen.
Colin Levy joins Pathfinder to tell the story of his short film Skywatch came to be. From adventures with the Blender Studio in Amsterdam to a stint at Pixar, we follow a storyteller through the process of getting to build the world you actually want to. This is part one of a two part series.
This week Pathfinder is featuring Nick Hilton's new show from Podot, The Town That Didn't Stare. There is a town in southern England, nestled between the ancient Ashdown Forest and the untamed beauty of the High Weald, called East Grinstead. Locals refer to it as "the town that didn't stare"; a place where you are not judged by what you look like or how you live your life. It's no surprise then, perhaps, that it's the the nexus of Britain's alternative religious scene: from the Scientologists to the Mormons, Opus Dei to Paganism, East Grinstead has it all.
The final chapter of Pathfinder's Monster Month. This episode we look inside the monsters that aren't born of fiction, but of reality. We immerse ourselves in our fear and fascination of serial killers.
This week on Pathfinder, part three of our series of human's manifestation of fear. This week we introduce you to the cosmic horror of H.P. Lovecraft his creation Cthulhu and why Lovecraft's work may have more of an influence on stories than you could have ever imagined.
This week on Pathfinder, part two of our descent into the world of monsters. With the help of Professor Stephen Asma we look into what makes us so obsessed with the things that go bump in the night and where they came from.
This month we wade into the murky world of monsters, starting with a story about some familiar names that were very misunderstood.
All is not well in the world, so this week instead of our usual episode, we encourage you to go and make your voice heard. Our communities need support and as storytellers, we have the ability to educate, empathize and inspire better approaches. Pathfinder stands in solidarity with Black communities in the US, UK and around the world in the fight against systemic racism, police brutality and oppression. Black Lives Matter.
Sometimes the most interesting stories are hidden in plain sight. This week Ollie searches the depths of DVD special features for where to find the best behind the scenes stories ever recorded.
On our journey this week we look at the hidden storytelling tools of Animal Crossing. What may seem like a game about nothing has far more going on than meets the eye, and achieves something many other stories can't.
Films have always had a certain magic to them. This week on Pathfinder we pull back the curtain on what it takes to create something special. Director, Ryan Connolly, of Film Riot joins us to break down his path to the silver screen.
