The Broken Projector Movie Podcast (filmmaker interviews)
A movie podcast that isn't boring.

Zero more days 'til Halloween, my friends. That means we'll all soon be dressing up in pop culturally aware costumes, eating candy we're supposed to be giving to children and gorging ourselves on fright night features.

To mark the occasion, special guest host Eric D. Snider submits himself to a fiendish quiz about horror movies and Psychorama after we share your responses to last week's question.

Plus, we have a candid conversation with R-rated producer Adi Shankar who continues playing by his own rules with the release of a twisted, Saturday Morning Cartoon From Hell take on Judge Dredd.

You should follow Eric (@ericdsnider), Adi Shankar (@adishankarbrand), the show (@brokenprojector), Geoff (@drgmlatulippe) and Scott (@scottmbeggs) on Twitter for more on a daily basis.

Children of Men Baby Scene

Fresh off his Oscar win on Sunday, Gravity visual effects supervisor Tim Webber joins us to talk about his work with Alfonso Cuaron and explain how we can build our own CGI babies at home.

Plus, we discuss how soon is too soon when it comes to real-life tragedy adaptations, and Josh Spiegel from Mousterpiece Cinema helps us debate the state of children's movies (while envisioning a high octane version of Winnie The Pooh).

And, as always, if you like the show (or hate it with seething fervor), please help us out with a review.

Devil's Due

The dream is to get famous on YouTube and translate that success into a feature film career, but so far the only group to truly do that is Radio Silence. The filmmakers behind the found footage uterine horror Devil's Due made a name for themselves on the site where a bajillion hours of video is uploaded every second, and now they're staking that reputation on the big screen. We'll talk to them about that jump and what goes into making a baby.

Plus, Geoff and I attempt to sell each other on two debatable ideas: the rising power of fan clubs to demand content from creators and the need for aspiring screenwriters to avoid reading scripts-in-progress.

12 Years a Slave

The visuals of 12 Years a Slave are stunning, often unflinching, and this week we've invited cinematographer (and frequent Steve McQueen collaborator) Sean Bobbitt to explain how he made millions uncomfortable with his imagery. 

Plus, Geoff and I talk about The Wolf of Wall Street's capability to turn good people into quaalude-hungry maniacs and answer a hypothetical question about saving only one 2014 movie from destruction (by quaalude-hungry maniacs).

Sinister

Scott Derrickson, the writer/director behind The Exorcism of Emily Rose and Sinister, joins us this week to explain how to scare the hell out of someone at the cinema. Plus, FSR head-honcho-in-chief Neil Miller shares what movie prop he desperately wants to own, and we hear some of your responses.

sxsw youre next

We've waited a long time to see You're Next, an even longer time to see All The Boys Love Mandy Lane, and we'll never get to see The Day the Clown Cried. While we tear-up about it, producer Keith Calder joins us to describe what it's like to see something you made collect dust on a shelf even as people clamor for its release. He'll explain one direction your luck can go in when your movie is being treated like a used mattress.

Plus, Geoff and I daydream about movies that could have been amazing if they hadn't burned in development hell and explore how to email a professional screenwriter looking for advice.

The Man Who Paints The Future

The fantastically talented TyRuben Ellingson has been painting the future for years. Getting his start as a VFX art director on Jurassic Park, he's gone on to envision vehicles, worlds and weaponry for James Cameron and Guillermo del Toro. His work can be seen this summer stomping in Pacific Rim and flying through Neill Blomkamp's Elysium, and we were lucky enough to speak with him about his sci-fi conceptual art.

Plus, Geoff defends screenwriter Damon Lindelof for saying he's tired of destruction porn, and we challenge ourselves to sum up the week's news in only three words.

You should check out Ellingson's website, and follow the show (@brokenprojector), Geoff (@drgmlatulippe) and Scott (@scottmbeggs) on Twitter for more fun stuff on a daily basis.

And, as always, we welcome your feedback.

The Greatest Escape

With a ton of classic films and an Oscar under his belt, producer Walter Mirisch joins us to talk about The Great Escape, Steve McQueen and the key to producing great movies. 

Plus, with so much news landing, Geoff and I offer opinionated insight and some insightful opinions on Ray Harryhausen, the future of a potential Downey-less Marvel, a delayed Jurassic Park IV, and the best trailers of the week.
