The Movie Crypt

Feb 17, 2020

Austrian filmmaking team Severin Fiala and Veronika Franz (GOODNIGHT MOMMY, THE LODGE) sits down with Adam, Joe, and Arwen for a hilarious and extremely honest conversation about their career journey and the reality of financing films in this day and age. The unlikely filmmaking duo share the incredible story of how they met and began working together… the major differences/similarities between getting a film financed in Austria and in America… their approach to equally sharing the helm on each project… the major differences with which “success” is measured in Austria and in the USA… and the challenges that almost every filmmaker faces in trying to communicate just how difficult it actually is to maintain a career in the arts to those on the outside of the industry. Dr. Arwen provides emotional support/advice to a filmmaker wondering when the time is right to stop working for free (which spawns a brutally honest discussion about the perils of being too generous), Adam shares a very messy story about “parenting,” and Joe and Severin realize that they in fact shared a past “life” in this super entertaining and incredibly candid episode.
