It's been awhile since I took the crossover approach for an episode, allowing it to exist for both Director's Club & Voices and Visions. Since my guests today are both tremendously talented filmmakers with a lot of insights, stories and new projects to promote, I decided to include this in both feeds. After my introduction to the proceedings, I first speak with writer/director Jonathan Milott who alongside collaborator Cary Murnion have recently made a film called BUSHWICK that couldn't be more timely. We delve into exactly why that is as well as the history between this team who is also responsible for the indie horror/comedy COOTIES. Even if Skype was not kind to my side of the recording, thankfully Jonathan comes through crystal clear! BUSHWICK is worth your time and Jonathan shared a lot about the filmmaking process behind his latest action thriller. P.S Cary and Jonathan are not brothers.
At around the 40 minute mark, I then speak with someone I've known for quite awhile since she also happens to be the wife of one of my closest friends and former guests, Mr. Dan Solomon. Katherine Craft is an established writer in many forms with a lot of success stories, both as an activist and as a creative artist. Her latest endeavor involves HBO (yes that HBO) so we discuss the experience surrounding that as well as her IndieGoGo campaign for her personal project CHARLOTTE AND CHARLIE, which I hope you'll contribute to. Both interviews provide a lot of great commentary on the art of directing, writing, within the film and theater industries, so I am positive you'll get a lot of these talks. And be sure to follow the work of Katherine linked below!
