Filmmaker Christopher Smith (CREEP, SEVERANCE, BLACK DEATH, TRIANGLE) shares his career journey with Adam, Joe, and Arwen. From a child collecting film magazines with a belief that he could someday make his own films… to having that belief confirmed during his time in film school… to the realization that he’d have the best chance of getting a feature off the ground if he made something in the horror genre… to the terrific reception of his debut film CREEP and the string of terrific films that have followed… to his move into television directing… to the making of his latest film THE BANISHING (available now on VOD, digital, Blu-Ray, and DVD)… this candid conversation between 3 filmmakers with a 15 year history together covers almost every single aspect of both the craft and the business. Dr. Arwen provides “Hollywood Therapy” for a patient who has terrific ideas for films but an unfortunate list of physical ailments preventing him from writing the scripts himself, Chris reveals the chilling source of where he found the inspiration for some of the most disturbing imagery in THE BANISHING, and the boys discuss the art of building proper dread in a thriller.
