The Movie Crypt

Dec 18, 2023

PUBLIC VERSION. Director Travis Greene and writer Jonathan Buchanan (8 FOUND DEAD- currently available to rent or purchase digitally) join Adam, Joe, and Arwen in the ArieScope Studio to discuss the making of their award winning new feature. From the writing of 8 FOUND DEAD’s non-linear story and pushing back on the note to “unfold it” and tell the story in a more traditional order of events… to Travis risking it all by selling his house to finance the production and then finding himself renting a place that just so happened to be the perfect location to shoot the film… to the import role that Priscilla’s Gourmet Coffee Shop and their legendary Raspberry Mocha played in helping the film come to life… to blocking and staging a story in four separate but converging timelines… to how Jonathan’s years as a prop master and Travis’ years as an editor prepared them for producing their very own feature without getting caught up in the usual first-time producer pitfalls… to knowing when and when not to listen to test audiences’ opinions of early cuts even when they are filled with trusted friends… to going on to win “Best Feature” and “Best Director” at the 2022 ScreamFest in Los Angeles… we hope that this incredibly inspiring conversation helps push you to stop waiting for someone else’s permission and start making your dream a reality! Remember, if not now WHEN?
Dr. Arwen provides “Hollywood Therapy” for a listener who is about to move to the United States and who is looking for some tips about attending her very first horror convention, Adam has some advice for grumpy convention celebrities, and the boys joke about what a big success YORKIETHON 8 will be… several weeks before finding out just how successful it actually was! But more on that next week in our special Christmas episode!
