    Yet again – fully enjoyed this week’s show! I will say I lean more towards Timothy’s definition of filmmaker. While the term “filmmaker” can be broadly used for anyone who takes part in making movies, I generally use it to describe myself instead of calling myself a writer/actor/director/producer/editor. But if I want someone to hire me as a writer, I refer to myself specifically as a writer. So I guess context plays a roll. Also, Timothy, you must stop saying irregardless. It is not a word.

    • Yeah, yeah, that’s what I was kind of getting at. Filmmaker fills in for the mutliple title problem. I hate when people call themselves writer/director/producer/actor/editor. It makes me want to say “Choose one!” So filmmaker is a less annoying way to say you can do a lot of things. Do I say “irregardless”? I never noticed. Irregardless, if you understand what I’m trying to say, it’s a word.
