Podcast #156 – The Pig Picture: Running Times & CGI Animals

The Film Pigs are happy to report we’re ending March with a brand-new indictment-free episode!

Podcast #155 – The Pig Picture: The Effect of A.I. on Cinema

We’re back just in time to end February with our fingers on the pulse – we’re talking how the rise of Artificial Intelligence will affect the future of cinema.
