PUBLIC VERSION. Writer/Producer/Director Jed Shepherd (HOST, DASHCAM) joins Adam, Joe, and Arwen to discuss his career journey. Bolstered as a writer by one of the most timely and audacious film premieres during the pandemic (HOST) and the wave making DASHCAM, Jed has now stepped into the director’s chair with his contribution to Aaron Koontz’s anthology hit franchise SCARE PACKAGE 2 (now streaming now on Shudder) where he tackles the myth behind the ghost kid from THREE MEN AND A BABY. Jed describes how his Filipino mother informed his desire to learn about horrifying lore, the origins of his SCARE PACKAGE 2 segment, how HOST was born from pandemic necessity, the controversial discourse and fallout from Jed and Rob’s reality-based follow-up DASHCAM, and his deep love for all things BLAIR WITCH, including his interesting (and star-filled) visit to Burkitsville.
Dr. Arwen provides “Hollywood Therapy” for a filmmaker about to transition from short films to features and the boys offer their best strategies for keeping a crew happy and productive.
