In The Seats With...Adam Donshik and Tyler Wayne for 'Goodbye, Butterfly'
Grief can push you to the brink...
On this episode we have the pleasure of talking with actor Adam Donshik and Writer/Director Tyler Wayne for their new film 'Goodbye, Butterfly' that is hitting Prime and VOD platforms on April 15th.
'Goodbye, Butterfly' is the story of Ryan Olsen; a loving family man with the perfect life… until the day his five-year-old daughter is murdered. When the official police investigation hits a dead end, Ryan has a chance encounter with Stan Granger, an oddball neighbor from down the street, and becomes convinced that Stan is the killer. But, after the police ignore his suspicions, Ryan’s obsession with Stan quickly turns violent and, as he takes the law into his own hands, he must ultimately decide how far he’s willing to go in order to find out the truth.
We got the pleasure of talking with both men about the creative process, working within confined means and finding those creative partners that push you to the next level...
In The Seats With...Thomas Rinfret and 'The Last Villains; Mad Dog and the Butcher'
Icons get booed too...
It's a perfect collision of our bosses two favorite things this week as wrestling and documentary comes together during both Wrestlemania week and the Canadian Film Festival on the Super Channel. We talk with director Thomas Rinfret about 'The Last Villains; Mad Dog & The Butcher'
'The Last Villains' is the larger-than-life story of the legendary Vachon family of pro wrestlers, as recounted by its only surviving member, Paul "The Butcher" Vachon.
We talk with Thomas about how he got involved with the project, the legacy of a family in a hard business that took it's toll, why it's one surviving member wouldn't have traded it for the world and the parallels between filmmaking and the art of professional wrestling...
In The Seats With...Brad Furman and 'City of Lies'
Corruption is everywhere...
We've got a good one on this episode as we sit down with director Brad Furman about his new film 'City of Lies' which is on VOD platforms now.
Based on the true story of one of the most notorious and unsolved cases in recent time, City of Lies is a provocative thriller revealing a never-before-seen look at the infamous murder of The Notorious B.I.G. shortly following the death of Tupac. L.A.P.D. detective Russell Poole (Johnny Depp) has spent years trying to solve his biggest case, but after two decades, the investigation remains open. "Jack" Jackson (Forest Whitaker), a reporter desperate to save his reputation and career, is determined to find out why. In search of the truth, the two team up and unravel a growing web of institutional corruption and lies. Relentless in their hunt, these two determined men threaten to uncover the conspiracy and crack the foundation of the L.A.P.D. and an entire city.
We had the pleasure to sit down with Brad to talk about how he got involved in the project, if he should even do it in the first place, the cinematic mystery behind Los Angeles as a back drop for crime and why it's important to still shine a light on a story like this...
In The Seats With...Anthony Giacchino and Alice Doyard for 'Colette'
Short things can have real power...
We're in Oscar season as all 15 of the nominated short films in the Live-Action, Animated and Documentary category are playing in select Virtual (or Actual) Cinemas across North America.
We got the distinct pleasure to sit down with director Anthony Giacchino and producer Alice Doyard to talk about their short 'Colette'.
As a young girl, Colette Marin-Catherine fought the Nazis as a member of the French Resistance. Since 1945, she has refused to set foot in Germany. That changes when a history student named Lucie enters her life and encourages her to visit the concentration camp where the Nazis killed her brother.
This film is an intense experience and we talked with Anthony and Alice about the origins of the story, how they found their subject, the importance of the short form film and allowing for truth to shine in storytelling...
