PUBLIC VERSION. Filmmaker and friend of the podcast Jason Eisener (HOBO WITH A SHOTGUN, V/H/S 2, TV’s DARK SIDE OF THE RING) returns to discuss the making of his latest feature KIDS VS ALIENS (now available on Shudder, digital, and Blu-Ray)! From the process of turning his V/H/S 2 short into a feature film… to writing for and working with a cast of children… to what it was like shooting at his own parents’ house… to the benefits of being a young and naive filmmaker… to the pros and cons of editing your own work versus working with an editor… to the way Jason tackles reenactments in his DARK SIDE OF THE RING series and just how soon fans can expect to see Season 4… this in-depth filmmaker on filmmaker conversation about Jason’s process is the perfect example of why Jason Eisener is one of our favorite guests of the past 10 years.
Dr. Arwen provides “Hollywood Therapy” for a filmmaker who has recently completed a short film only to learn that a feature with similar themes is now in development, the guys geek out over STAR WARS, and Jason surprises the boys with gifts from Japan in this incredibly enjoyable conversation.
