    Episode 185 - LIVE from WonderCon 2022 w/ Luke McGarry

    A new episode of podcast is here! This weeks episode is LIVE from Anaheim, CA at WonderCon 2022 with special guest, cartoonist and animator, Luke McGarry! 

    I have been following Luke on social media for several years and have been a huge fan of his art. When I knew I was doing a live show at WonderCon, Luke was one of the first people I thought of and I was so excited to have him join me on the show.  

    On the episode I talked with Luke about living in the UK, finding his artistic influence, growing up surrounded by animators and cartoonists, his band Pop Noir, working for MAD Magazine, KROQ designs, working with Tenacious D, Sad Chewie and so much more!



    A huge thanks to Luke McGarry for taking the time to join me on the podcast at WonderCon. Thank you as well to Comic-Con International and WonderCon for allowing us to be a part of this years convention. Make sure to follow Luke on all of the links on the website https://www.onthemicpodcast.com and check out his art on his official website as well!
     
    Thanks, Luke!

    Episode 184 - LIVE from San Diego Comic-Con 2021: Special Edition w/ Alex Watson and Emily Perry

    Episode 184 - LIVE from San Diego Comic-Con 2021: Special Edition w/ Alex Watson and Emily Perry

    We are finally back with a new episode! What better way to return to podcasting than with a LIVE episode from one of our favorite places, San Diego Comic-Con: Special Edition! 

    This episode was recorded over Thanksgiving Weekend 2021 as Comic-Con International returned for their first in-person event since the pandemic began. This year was extra special to me since we were not only doing a live show again, but we were also debuting the trailer for "Bundy Manor", the horror film I spent the past year producing. 

    Since we had the entire cast of Bundy Manor in town for the panel and trailer debut, I invited my good friend, Writer/Director Alex Watson and Actress Emily Perry to join me on the podcast!

    Alex was previously on the podcast years ago and I was so excited to have him back on the show to talk about the film we've been working on and what inspires him as a filmmaker and took him down the horror path. This was my first time meeting Emily in person after working with her for months on the film. Emily has such an intriguing, fun story, and a very unique collection she told us about on the show. 

    A huge thanks to Alex and Emily for joining me on the podcast over Thanksgiving weekend in San Diego. We had such a great time together. Also a big thank you to San Diego Comic-Con for having us back for another live show. It was so great to be back in front of a live audience! 

    Thanks, Alex and Emily!

    Episode 183 - Hugo Covarrubias and Tevo Diaz

    Episode 183 - Hugo Covarrubias and Tevo Diaz

    Oscar week is here and it's time for an all new episode of the podcast with Oscar nominees Hugo Covarrubias and Tevo Diaz! 

    Hugo and Tevo's film "Bestia" is nominated for Best Animated Short Film in the 94th Oscars. I first watched "Bestia" at the Sundance Film Festival this year and was absolutely blown away by it. I knew immediately that it would be nominated for an Oscar and it was no surprise when the nominations were announced that "Bestia" was among them. 

    Hugo and Tevo discussed the process of getting "Bestia" off the ground, the immense research that went into creating the character and story, the production design (which is incredible), filming during the pandemic, and so much more. 

    It was a great time talking with Hugo and Tevo over Zoom. There were a few technical issues, but they worked themselves out as the episode rolled on. "Bestia" is a film that will stick with me forever. I can't wait to see what is next for them and wish them the best at the Oscar's this Sunday. 

    You can still see "Bestia", as well as all of the nominated short films as part of ShortsTV. Click on the link below to find where it's playing near you. 

    Thanks, Hugo and Tebo!

    Enjoy the episode!

    Episode 182 - Jason Park

    On today's episode of the podcast I have Writer and Director, Jason Park! 


    Jason's current film BJ's Mobile Gift Shop is part of this year's Sundance Film Festival Shorts Program. I absolutely loved this film and wanted to talk to Jason about the film and about his filmmaking career. 


    In this episode I talked with Jason about growing up in Chicago, finding his love for film, making the career change to filmmaking, his Sundance experience, what inspired BJ's Mobile Gift Shop and more. 


    A huge thanks to Jason for taking the time to join me on this episode. This was a really fun episode to record and we talked for much longer than was originally planned for this episode. It was great to get to know him and I really look forward to seeing what Jason does next. Make sure to follow him on all of the links below. 


    Thanks, Jason!
