Episode 2: Anthony C Ferrante

Anthony C. Ferrante is director of the enduring SHARKNADO franchise, the fourth entry of which lands on Syfy this Sunday, July 31st. He has deep roots in the horror genre, coming from years with Fangoria magazine and a long history in indie cinema (BOO, VIDEO DEAD, THE DENTIST films, WISHMASTER 2, HEADLESS HORSEMAN, etc). Recently Anthony has dipped into the world of music videos and commercials. Ferrante joins me for an in depth conversation on his finned franchise and his adventures in no budget filmmaking. In addition to premiering Sharknado Rhapsody, the new song he and Robbie Rist wrote for S4, we dig into the recently announced new entry in the HALLOWEEN franchise. **

Intro focuses on my upcoming short film ONLY DREAM OF ME.

Episode 1: E. Elias Merhige

Visionary director E. Elias Merhige joins me to discuss his best known films BEGOTTEN and SHADOW OF THE VAMPIRE, his new picture POLIA AND BLASTEMA, working with Marilyn Manson, growing up in beautiful, grimy 1970s New York City, how illness and surgical procedures can inform art, and much more. It is a fascinating, in-depth conversation with one of my favorite people on earth, and one of the most unique voices in contemporary cinema. Plus there is some great news for fans of BEGOTTEN.

Intro segment is a little bit of information about me.
