Interview 6 – Granison Crawford

Wanted to introduce you this week to actor and comedian and a dear acquaintance of mine Granison Crawford. I had the opportunity to direct Granison in a very sweet and poignant short film I wrote called The Purpose of Apples. When he isn't acting he is doing stand up comedy - and he took a moment away from his routine to stop by and talk with us. 1. Tell me a little about Granison Crawford, the stand-up comedian? I was adopted, or as I like to call it, “chosen” at five years old, and raised with my sister by a single mom in Oakland California. Growing up I was into comic books, soccer, video games, and Dungeons & Dragons. In school I was always the class clown, so I spent most of my time in detention for making the teachers and my classmates laugh. As a comedian I like to break down my...

Michael sits and has a mimosa with horror author Matthew R. Fleming, who has self-published his first novel The Dreams. Synopsis: Waking up in an unknown forest with four strangers, James has an unsettling feeling that the group is not alone. As tension mounts and he finds himself questioning the motives and loyalty of his companions, one of the group members disappears, leaving only a pool of blood behind.

This fascination drove me to the film ‘An American Werewolf in London’ At the wide-eyed age of 8, I stared at that hairy, magnificent, werewolf in wonderment. From that moment I was hooked to movies. While embarking upon my journey to watch as many movies as I could I realized a couple of things along the way: Sound is major, but only as much as music.  Sound has been a big part of my life, since I was a kid. Whether it be watching Spielbe...
