Here at Cine Vibes, when we stumble across something that truly impacts us, we always want to dig in deeper. In this case it was after watching the 2021 film, ICON, written & directed by our guest today...Tony Ahedo! We knew immediately after watching that we needed to try and get Tony on the show.
This feature length indie film was the feature debut for Tony and what a debut outing it was. We chat with Tony about the origins of his film, how he found the perfect chemistry in leads, Parker Padgett & Devon Hales (Teenage Bounty Hunters) & much more!
So without further delay, please enjoy this chat with Tony Ahedo!
