Just finished listening to the new podcast. It was a REALLY GREAT EPISODE.
The stuff about the movie projector was very funny.
Loved your comments about a film being "commercially viable". However, I think you should keep making films that are a "labor-of-love" ( for lack of a better term ), no matter how bad they turn out.
I don't know how any of you feel about John Cassavetes, Abel Ferrara, and Samuel Fuller. They, and many others, made both "commercially viable" and "labor-of-love" types of films. I think filmmakers should make both types of films. Hope for the best with your "commercially viable" flicks, and maybe finance your "labor-of-love" wilth the money you make from your commercially successful films ( if there's any money to be made at all, LOL ). Does that makes sense?
I agree with the comment about "sexual stigma" in our country. I loved a movie called NAKED KISS when I saw it as a kid ( on television ). Samuel Fuller really took a chance when he made that movie. Think about the subject matter ( prostitution, pedophile masquerading as a normal human ). I don't think NAKED KISS was a "commercially viable" film when it was made. But I'm happy he had the guts to make it. It was ahead of it's time. I'm assuming the movie must have scared many theater owners, but since I was not an adult at the time, I don't know.
If Mr. LaMartina and Mr. George are reading this, I want them to know that I loved their short films ( lost trailer park ).
The LIGHTING tip was good to hear, and I would add SOUND to the list also.
I was wondering about "script doctors", so I am happy to hear that some of them are legit.
Did you guys go to Chiller in April? Will you be talking about it on a upcoming podcast? Any of you meet Sherilyn Fenn?
Missed listening to Mr. Fedele.
Is Mr. Snygg going to be on the podcast anytime soon? It would be fun to listen to Mr. Snygg , Mr Fedele and Mr. Raso on the same show.

Thanks for the feedback.
We were at Chiller but no audio or videotape this time. Sherilyn Fenn? No, wish I did.

Just finished listening to this episode. Great stuff! I'm glad that Faces of Schlock is going to be released through AC because I ordered a copy via the film's website and it never arrived! Oh well, I hope the $25 I spent will go to good use.
I have to agree with CVB about getting Mr. Snygg on the podcast. What's he doing these days?
On one of the early AC podcasts, you were quite downcast about the future of DVD. I don't have a Blu-ray player and don't particularly feel the need to get one. This is mostly because the discs are horribly expensive, but also because I am worried that this medium will have a very limited life given that it will become easier to download movies in decent quality. I live in the U.K. and I don't sense that Blu-ray is making much of an impact over here. How long do you think it will be until downloading supersedes disc media completely?
One last question: Will there be any new releases from Seduction Cinema this year?
