Filmmakers Mel House, Chris Warren, and Brittany Miles share their unfiltered, true stories about making their way through the independent film landscape.
Ep. 45 - INBETWEENING Sneak Peek...I mean "Sneak Listen"
Earlier this week, I did this "sneak peek" of the movie via Zoom - it was part of the grant finalization process. I recorded it, so here's the audio! I play rough cuts from a few scenes I've edited thus far, plus a early sneak peek (listen) to "S**tshow", the song from the musical number in the film.
INBETWEENING stars Brandon Cole, Tye Blue, Debbie Rochon, Chelsea McCurdy, Jill Brumer, Dillon DeWitt, Seán Patrick Judge, and Angelo Moore (the frontman/singer/saxophonist of Black Rock pioneers Fishbone).
We completed principal photography in March 2022, and are in post production right now! Join me for a WORK IN PROGRESS sneak peek at some of the footage and animation as well as discussion of some of the underlying themes/origins of the stories within!
Ep. 44 - In Between The Mystery Spots
What's up everyone? Yep, been a while. Lots of stuff has happened...and we do mean LOTS. MYSTERY SPOT premiered, DARK RITUAL gained traction, the Burn video finally came out, AND we shot another feature (INBETWEENING). Mel catches you up on ALL of it.

This is a mostly unfiltered look at people working, full time, in the movie business. It is about work ethic, determination, personal obstacles and work/life balance. I do think you will enjoy this show. Now, my one knock is that the episodes don't air regularly, but Melgets a pass cause a man's gotta work. And when you are "Barely Living the Dream" you work whenever you can.
It’s like listening to children complain about sharing. These people are idiots. Well mostly Chris.
Listen, Learn and Be Entertained
I have truly enjoyed listening to this podcast. It is an informative no holds barred perspective on the process of making it in movies. Only the top 1% get all the riches and glory. But if you love something enough, it is what drives you. You can hear it in this group of filmmakers.
