Charles de Lauzirika changed the film documentary game in 2007 with DANGEROUS DAYS: MAKING BLADE RUNNER, an unmatched achievement in cinema archeology. He is behind the restoration of BLADE RUNNER, ALIEN 3, and others, has been behind EPKs for a long list of iconic filmmakers, and has recently moved into the realm of narrative features. On this episode Charles and I explore all sorts of side roads, from KISS to STAR WARS, and dive deep on his many influential years in behind-the-scenes filmmaking.
Michael Felsher is a contemporary giant in the world of film documentary and special features with his production company Red Shirt Pictures. The list of films he has produced material for is a mile long and includes Anchor Bay, Synapse, Shout! Factory, among others. He has had relationships with some of the most beloved names in the horror genre, and has an endless roll of fascinating stories about his adventures in the trenches. In this discussion Michael and I cover a lot, from his diverse history in the world of video, to our shared history as fans, our battles with studios, and about the magic moments that reinforce why we do what we do. A blast and an honor.
