PUBLIC VERSION. Filmmaker Deon Taylor (MEET THE BLACKS, TRAFFIK, CHAIN LETTER) joins Adam, Joe, and Arwen to discuss his career journey and the making of his latest horror film FEAR (now available digitally)! From playing professional basketball in Germany… to deciding to change his career path entirely and pursue his dream of making movies… to landing in Los Angeles without a back-up plan or a safety net… to self-learning all aspects of the filmmaking process… to carving out his own path in the indie world as he prolifically pivoted from film to film and genre to genre… to making of his latest feature FEAR at the height of the pandemic and the crazy hurdles that the early COVID testing process placed on his production’s schedule… Deon is a terrific example of a filmmaker who never waited for permission to make his dreams come true. The boys also discuss the horror movies that scared them as kids, hold an impromptu Tony Todd appreciation session, and Deon shares his first experience seeing HATCHET in this tremendously inspiring conversation that will hopefully get you to stop waiting and just go for it!
