This week we talk to actress and singer Ashely Cordelia about her new film and her new album! 1. Tell us about the film MERMAID DOWN?

Interview 14 – Julian Lowenthal

Last year I went to Massachusetts to film a feature film with Sam Elliot and Aidan Turner. I was there for 5 weeks and I really had an amazing time. While there I met a young man named Julian Lowenthal. I was impressed with his work ethic; hard working, friendly, always smiling. While we were filming he told me about his feature he directed 'Silenced' in the local theater. Well, he is finally having his first screening and I thought I would ask him to share his process with us! 1. What is your film 'Silenced' about?

Interview 13 – Friday the 13th

For this Friday the 13th of 2018 I asked my writing partner Brantley J Brown to help me come up with some questions to ask the team of the largest horror franchise of all time: Friday the 13th. We came up with 5 questions. Why do you think the Friday the 13th franchise became so iconic. What does the character of Jason Voorhees symbolize for you? How would you compare the horror films of the day to those, say, from the 70s & 80s Speaking of Friday the 13th, are you superstitious? What scares you the most? Here are their answers: Victor Miller, writer, the original Friday the 13th Writing, direction, special effects and music——talk about synergy! Remove any one of them and you’re left with who knows… Jason was always a victim. He was a freak of nature, derided and lost. Ki...

Interview 12 – David Tetz

Art is a good way to work through pain. This week I talk to David Tetz about the struggles in his life and how is music helped him cope and survive the battle. BIO David T8tz is an indie DIY songwriter based out of Bakersfield CA. He is also known for his dodgeball and songwriting podcast on SoundCloud, The Book Of with David T8tz. He splits his time between singing, writing, parenting, and playing dodgeball. 1. Explain the inspiration for your album. Writing each song as they came up was more of a matter of survival than anything else. It was either get some of the poison out of you through your art or implode/explode spectacularly. I was a parent, and the only parent left now, so I didn’t really have the option of self-destructing (although as you can hear in the car crash on track 14,...
