Episode 187 – 2016 Oscar Predictions

Alan Cerny (@NordlingCS on twitter) joins host Craig Price to discuss their 2016 Oscar Predictions. Season 6 starts off like it has the last 5 years, with Craig and Alan predicting their choices for the 2016 Academy Awards, lamenting non-nominees, why someone should have or shouldn’t have been nominated as well as who they think WILL win and who they think SHOULD win. It looks like a rather boring year at the Academy in which Craig rants against Rachel McAdams, both Alan and Craig take issue with Leonardo Dicaprio’s snot-bubbled grunting and their mutual love of Mad Max: Fury Road.

Also, past guest and friend of the show, Thom Singer is in the middle of his annual fundraiser (all February) for the Kate Singer Endowment for Cranio-Facial Research. It’s a good cause and the money goes to the Dell Children’s Medical Center out of Austin and Rady Children’s Hospital in San Diego. Please consider donating by clicking here to donate.

Episode 166 – Paul Bright – Digital Filmmaking

Director Paul Bright (@PaulBrightFilms on twitter) sits down with host Craig Price to discuss digital filmmaking. Comicpalooza premiered Paul’s latest film “Long Term Parking” on May 23rd. Little did he suspect that his trip to Houston would force him to cross paths with Craig! The two discuss creating films for the small, small screen (phones and tablets), how you think about shooting films with unlimited recording capabilities,  auditioning actors a foot away from a cell phone camera and some of the pros and cons of the available distribution outlets for independent filmmakers. They also discuss how the new, smaller high definition cameras allow for more shot flexibility and how actors act knowing that they can do unlimited takes (in theory) without having to start the scene all over. Also, Craig blatantly tries to get cast in Paul’s next film. Pathetic, really. It’s a great discussion for anyone interested in making their own independent films.

You can find Paul and his movies at http://PaulBrightFilms.com  and check out his vlog Paul’s Tub Talk on Youtube.

Episode 161 – John Simons – Comicpalooza 2015

John Simons, chairman of Comicpalooza (@comicpalooza on twitter) speaks with host Craig Price about putting a comic-con together. The two discuss the modest history of Comicpalooza from it’s humble beginnings in a movie theater lobby to the juggernaut can’t miss festival that boast 60,000 attendees (more are expected this year!). John explains how he had hoped to grow into a hotel ballroom type of space only to see his comic-con jump into the cavernous George R Brown Convention Center. He talks about how he plans ahead (sometime up to 3 years in advance) for upcoming conventions, who they decide to ask and what type of programming you can expect this year. Craig goes on and on about how great John Barrowman was at Comicpalooza 2014 (It’s kind of embarrassing), the diversity of programming available (it’s really like 10 small conventions happening at once) and the love of beer while waiting in line.

Comicpalooza’s mission is to provide the best and biggest annual multi-format pop culture convention in the southwest region of the United States, serving not only the fans of comics, science fiction, fantasy, video and table top gaming, anime, music and film, but also as a trade show and showcase for the studios, publishers, and manufacturers in those industries.

This year Comicpalooza is happening on May 22nd through the 25th. You can learn about all the guests currently scheduled (Craig is excited to see Haley Atwell and Henry Winkler) at http://www.comicpalooza.com
