In our first show of the 2012 season, we set off the filmmaking fireworks by finding out why Innkeepers director Ti West doesn’t believe in spooks, and by talking to indie icon Ed Burns about the twitter revolution, his $9,000 budget, and his new must-see movieNewlyweds.
Plus, Neil Miller stops by to dangle the hope and potential of 2012’s most anticipated movies over our noses. Will he say the movie you’re thinking of and validate his opinion to you, or will he neglect it, making everything he says in the future suspect?
Be prepared to find out a metric ton about movies and their makers, because it’s our third season, and we’re only getting started.
Your Dreams Were Your Ticket Out: [Beginning – 21:40] Our very own Dear Leader, Neil Miller delivers his 5 most anticipated movies of 2012 – a tough task, considering we could only whittle our site list down to 52 of ‘em.
Booking a Room at the Yankee Pedlar Inn: [21:40 – 39:00] Ti West is back with another horror flick. This time he’s tackling ghosts and ghost hunting, and we tackle why he should stop being called “The Slow Burn Kid.”
The Honeymooner: [39:00 – End] Ed Burns bucked the system as an indie filmmaker in the 90s, and he’s set to do it twice in one career. His method? Using twitter to engage directly with fans, to get feedback, and to use $9,000 to make the kind of movies he wants to make. It’s the future of film, and @Edward_Burns talks to us from the edge of it.
