Interviews

Every once in a while, someone interesting will agree to speak with us. Here you will find more than 15-years of archived interviews with producers, filmmakers, actors, below-the-line creatives, legends, and more.

We are also currently the host of two recurring interview series:

  • Check the Gate — a recurring column in which Brad Gullickson goes one-on-one with directors in an effort to uncover the reasoning behind their creative decisions.
  • World Builders — an ongoing series of conversations with the most productive and thoughtful behind-the-scenes craftspeople working in film and television today.
