The discussion includes: making short films with a group of film-making friends in Atlanta; the Sundance premiere of anthology, The Signal; a long stretch of figuring out “now what?”; honing his craft by writing,writing, writing; finding more success with anthologies like V/H/S and Southbound; his brief attachment at the helm of the long wait for the next Friday the 13th film; and his triumphant return to Sundance with this year’s The Nighthouse. David’s path through thick and thin is a prime example of the never-give-up spirit.
Dr. Arwen provides emotional support for a filmmaker being forced into a change of casting plans. David answers our Crypt Keepers’ burning questions, and Adam gets a novel idea for bathroom fruit in this long-overdue conversation.
Adam Green (Frozen, the Hatchet franchise), Joe Lynch (Mayhem, Everly) and Arwen the Yorkie host this inspirational and educational program that offers a comprehensive look at the artistic process and the enduring struggle of not giving up on your dreams. By candidly sharing their own trials and tribulations as filmmakers, Adam and Joe create an honest and heartfelt dialogue with their guests. The hilarious, heartbreaking and therapeutic “artist on artist” conversations focus on each guest’s individual journey and the various hurdles they have faced and conquered along the way.
Guests range from Academy Award winners, entertainment icons and A-list celebrities to cinematographers, editors, studio executives and countless other crucial positions not typically featured in the spotlight. An average episode of The Movie Crypt offers more insight for navigating the entertainment industry than an entire semester of film school.
