The Movie Crypt

Jul 25, 2022


Filmmaker Rob Savage (HOST, DASHCAM) joins Adam, Joe, and Arwen to discuss his career journey. From directing music videos and episodic television that felt more like “gigs” as opposed to his true artistic calling… to finding inspiration in what filmmakers like David F. Sandberg were doing by creating brilliant short films to gain consideration for studio level film work… to how he methodically went about making his phenomenal short film SALT (2017) which ultimately showed the industry that his talent could not be ignored… to how his found-Zoom-footage film HOST (released just 4 months into the global COVID-19 pandemic) proved to be exactly the right movie at exactly the right time… to his decision to immediately follow up HOST with a second found footage horror film (DASHCAM) and his controversial choice in making the movie's protagonist such an extremely polarizing character… to how he managed to make and release both films while simultaneously bringing his next film to life (the adaptation of Stephen King’s THE BOOGEYMAN - currently in post-production)… you’re gonna need a nap after you hear how hard Rob was working through the pandemic while so many others were binge watching TV shows, learning how to make sourdough bread, and grandstanding on social media!
Dr. Arwen provides “Hollywood Therapy” for a patient looking to manage their stress levels without self-medicating, the group discusses the benefit of embracing resource limitations and using imposed restrictions as a creative advantage, and the boys are reminded that "Park Avenue leads to Skid Row" in this wickedly motivating conversation.
