The Movie Crypt

Feb 28, 2022

PUBLIC VERSION. Filmmaker Mark Pellington (ARLINGTON ROAD, THE MOTHMAN PROPHECIES, I MELT WITH YOU, PEARL JAM’s “Jeremy” music video) joins Adam, Joe, and Arwen for a discussion about his career that is so epic and fascinatingly detailed that even at 2.5 hours long they barely scratch the surface. That’s right, the guys geeked out so hard over Mark’s early MTV years that they will need to record a separate episode dedicated to Mark’s feature film work! 

Pull up a front row seat to the birth of MTV as Mark candidly discusses his journey from an entry level assistant position in 1982… to becoming a bona fide network staff member… to producing some of the network’s most iconic promotions… and ultimately becoming one of the most revered music video directors of all time working with bands like PEARL JAM, U2, NINE INCH NAILS, BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN, IMAGINE DRAGONS, ALICE IN CHAINS, LINKIN PARK, and the late MICHAEL JACKSON. 

Dr. Arwen provides “Hollywood Therapy” for a listener dealing with intense frustration and the guys discuss Mark’s latest film THE SEVERING (in theaters this weekend)- a cathartic expression of grief inspired by the devastating loss of Mark’s wife that is told through the physicality of dance as opposed to a more traditional linear narrative. This captivating conversation is just getting started as Mark is set to return for Part 2 next week!
