A podcast about movies and the movies that inspired them. A good movie is the result of a large number of people both in front of and behind the camera combining to create a piece of art… But what about the movies that came before that inspired those filmmakers to make the movie? On Piecing It Together we figure out what the clear (and not so clear) influences were that make up the movies we love.

    On this special mini-episode of Piecing It Together, we talk about The Bob's Burgers Movie with my best friend's daughter Zoe.

Galaxy Of Film ,

A film lovers safe place

One interesting thing about loving and appreciating film is also having an appreciation for their director's. With this appreciation one might wonder, "what made them want to do this?" and that's what David is here to answer for you. Diving into a film and discovering the layers of inspiration within is one of the most interesting ways to review and discuss a movie and I absolutely love it. Definitely worth listening to! - Max from Galaxy Of Film

chiedugator ,

The Only Movie Podcast You Need

Whether you have seen, plan to watch, or have no interest in the movie discussed, David and the guests always have a great discussion that makes you look at films through a different lens. The unique perspective of the film score has also made me pay more attention to the music in certain films, whether in the theater or at home.

The Grand Lemur ,

A great concept, well executed.

Listening to David and his guests break down movies and pop culture that felt inspirational to the movie at hand is great, and might help others discover new films to watch.
