Welcome back to the Dear Bradley Vlog. Every month I'm going to be answering your most burning filmmaking questions. If you have one, please submit your questions in the comments below or via Instagram @Bradley_Gallo. Be very specific and I will personally answer your question the best I can.
Some answers will come in long form and others in a lightening round (multiple questions with 15 second answers). Some of you will have the same question and so we will combine those. So ask, ask, ask, away!
In the meantime, check out the questions below and the video below those where I answer a handful of questions from members in the lounges right here on Stage 32.
