PUBLIC VERSION. Filmmaker Stephen Scarlata (BEYOND THE GATES, JODOROWSKY’S DUNE) joins Adam, Joe, and Arwen in the ArieScope studio to discuss his career journey. From Stephen’s start working for the legendary Roger Corman back in the 90’s… to working almost every position and in every facet of production over the next three decades… to writing and producing 2016’s fantastic BEYOND THE GATES…to the making of his new documentary (and directorial debut) SHARKSPLOITATION (now streaming on Shudder)… Stephen and the boys take a deep dive (pun intended) into the process of making a great documentary. The group also discusses the craft of finding and building the best narrative story arc out of hours and hours (and hours) of interview footage, Stephen explains why a good lawyer makes all of the difference when it comes to licensing clips from movies and TV series both bog and small, and the boys rank the films of the JAWS franchise from their favorite to their not-so-favorite. This time… it’s personal. “Roar.”
