He is the Writer/Director/Producer of "Altered Minds" which is out now on VOD. It is a psychological thriller about a tormented son who makes a desperate bid to save his sanity by unearthing family secrets before his father dies. It stars Judd Hirsch, Ryan O'Nan, Jaime Ray Newman, C.S. Lee, Joseph Lyle Taylor, and Caroline Lagerfelt. We talked about how this amazing cast came together and the locations that were used during filming. I love movies like this. Each actor brought so much to their character, and it keeps you guessing right up the final scene. This episode also features the song "Happy" from the soundtrack. The song was written by Patrick Kelly and Erin Sax. Learn more at www.altered-minds.com and watch it today! If you reach out to Michael, please let him know that you heard him here first. Enjoy!

Episode 279 - Judy Chaikin

My guest today is Judy Chaikin! She is the Writer/Producer/Director of "The Girls in the Band." It is out now on DVD and VOD. I LOVED this movie. It was so exciting to have been given the opportunity to speak with Judy about it and feature her story of how the project came together. It is a documentary that details the journey of female jazz musicians from the 1930's through today. I am a huge fan of music, and thought I knew most of the highlights of 20th century musical history. I was wrong. This was an entire branch of the musical family tree that I was not aware of. The ladies featured here had to endure a career full of racism, sexism, and segregation...all while being world class musicians and entertainers. Their story may have been completely forgotten if not for the efforts of Judy and other likeminded film makers. We learn more about the past through interviews with the musicians, and a something about ourselves when we see the effect that prejudices and certain laws can have on people. To call it "compelling" isn't enough. It held me from start to finish and left me with the desire to learn more. One of the bands that Judy featured was "The International Sweethearts of Rhythm." I tracked down a few of their recordings and have included them with this episode. Learn more and buy your own copy of the movie at www.thegirlsintheband.com, and learn more about Judy at www.onestepproductions.com. When you reach out to Judy, please let her know that you heard her here first. Enjoy!

Episode 265 - Madellaine Paxson

My guest today is Madellaine Paxson! She is making her directorial debut with the movie Blood Punch. It is available now on VOD, DVD, and iTunes. It has won several awards on the festival circuit, and I highly recommend it. The story grabbed me in the first two minutes, and did not let go until the end credits. Madellaine told me how she and the cast worked together on the 17th season of Power Rangers RPM, and her work as a writer at Walt Disney TV Animation. Blood Punch is quite the departure from that side of her career, and it was very interesting to learn about what inspired her to create it. Learn more at www.bloodpunchmovie.com. If you reach out to Madellaine, please let her know that you heard her here first. Enjoy!

Episode 250 - Skyler Caleb

My guest today is Skyler Caleb! He is the writer, producer and lead actor in the film "Waking". The premise of the movie came to Skyler in a dream. It features a newly engaged man that meets a beautiful woman who he finds that he can connect with in his dreams. The blurred lines between the dream world and reality makes for a cool story! Skyler and I had a great time discussing the movie, as well as his time on the festival circuit promoting the movie. We also talked about some of the other podcasts that we listen to. Learn more about "Waking" at www.wakingmovie.com, and visit Skyler at www.skylercaleb.com. If you reach out, please let him know that you heard him here first. Enjoy!

Episode 227 - Paul Osborne

Paul Osborne is my guest today! I have been looking forward to meeting with him. He is the Writer and Director of "Favor". I absolutely LOVE this movie. I can't say enough about it.  It has elements of a classic thriller, but is very much a film of today. There are enough twists and turns to keep you guessing through to the end. It is now available on Hulu, as well as Amazon, iTunes, VOD, and DVD. It was great to speak with Paul about the movies that he loves, our shared love of laserdiscs, and Hollywood in general. Learn more about him at www.FavorMovie.com, www.twitter.com/PaulMakesMovies, and Facebook. If you get a chance to speak with Paul, please let him know that you heard him here first. Enjoy!
