Even if you don't drink beer, it's everywhere. That's something Christo Brock's new documentary, Brewmance, understands. The film is a love letter to craft brewing and to craft beer. It's become a global thing and we see that as two groups of home brewers in Long Beach, California, who are trying to open their own breweries. Also featured in the documentary are interviews with iconic brewers with Ken Grossman, Charlie Papazian, Jim Koch and others, as they tell us a bit of the history of craft beer.I was able to chat with writer, director and producer Christo Brock on today's episode of The Filmcraziest Show
I was able to chat with actress Lexy Hammonds who plays Cara in the new, surrealist neo-noir film "Drive All Night" that recently premiered at Cinequest. In the film, Hammonds plays Cara, a mysterious passenger who gets in the backseat of a taxi driven by reclusive driver Dave (Yutaka Takeuchi). In the conversation, we discuss the film's premiere, what it was like building chemistry with Yutaka, costume design, video games, conspiracy theories and much more.
Here's another interview I was able to do with Jessie Barr, director and co-writer of the new coming-of-age drama, "Sophie Jones," where we chat about the inception of the film collaborating with her younger cousin Jessica Barr on the film (who plays Sophie Jones), as well as the emotional rawness in the film, its music and locations. (Video and podcast are included.)
I was able to join in on the press day for a new science fiction anthology film called Doors and I was able to chat with writer/director Saman Kesh, writer/director Jeff Desom, as well as writer/director Dugan O’Neal about their project.
The film is about mysterious Doors that appear all over the world and humans rush to figure out the purpose of them. In one segment, we see how the doors got there; in another we see what happens when characters go inside the doors; and in another we learn a bit more about their purpose here. Doors stars Wilson Bethel, Julianne Collins, Lina Esco, Kyp Malone and Josh Peck.
On this episode of my interview podcast The Filmcraziest Show, I was joined by Edward Drake, the writer and director of his latest team-up with Bruce Willis, Cosmic Sin. The film is about seven rogue soldiers who launch a pre-emptive strike against a newly discovered alien civilization in the hopes of ending an interstellar war before it starts. We chat all about the weapons in the film, our favourite Stephen King novels, what it was like working with Bruce Willis and their continued collaboration, and much more. I’ve included the podcast and YouTube versions (as well as two bits of our conversation).
I interview actress Brenna Coates for her role in the new film "The Sinners," about a group of A-list high school girls who start a cult where they all represent the seven deadly sins. Now streaming On Demand. As well, in the conversation we discuss the sins in the film, the experience of being on set with another actress named Brenna, as well as some of her stage work in the play "The Wolves."
On this new episode of The Filmcraziest Show, I was able to chat with some talent behind the new drama thriller The Sinners. I had two different interviews, one talking with two of the actresses in the film, Kaitlyn Bernard and Brenna Llewellyn; as well as one conversation with the writer and director of the film, Courtney Paige.
The film is about a group of seven A-List Girls who form a cult at their high school where each girl embodies one of the seven deadly sins. Soon, after a disagreement within the group, they start to go missing one by one.
Here's a new episode of my podcast where I chat with the team behind the Canadian horror film BRIGHT HILL ROAD (with director Robert Cuffley, writer Susie Moloney and producer Colin Sheldon), a film centering around a character struggling through addiction who stops at the titular boarding house on her way to California.
