Hailed as one of Entertainment Weekly’s “Top 20 Podcasts” (Issue #1345 - Jan. 9, 2015), celebrated genre filmmakers Adam Green (HATCHET, FROZEN, DIGGING UP THE MARROW) and Joe Lynch (EVERLY, WRONG TURN 2, KNIGHTS OF BADASSDOM) host this informative and inspiring filmmaking podcast that has been called “audio film school” by both aspiring and working artists alike. Showcasing a different celebrity or other accomplished industry professional each week, Adam and Joe lead extremely candid discussions that focus on each guest’s individual journey through Hollywood and their comical, heartbreaking, and brutally honest tales from the trenches that reveal far more insight about the business than any film class could ever offer.

Including geek-tastic conversations about the genius of Spielberg, the art of John Woo, and the first films they remember seeing… this extended episode is incredibly fun and loaded with anecdotes, advice, and of course… inspiration.

Actor Michael Gladis (MAD MEN, TERMINATOR GENISYS, HOUSE OF LIES) sits down with Adam and Joe to share his journey from the stage to the screens both big and small.  From overcoming severe disappointment (Michael’s story about a cancelled play he *almost* starred in is both heartbreaking and inspirational as hell), to surviving the “not so badass” producer/financial/political shenanigans of Lynch’s KNIGHTS OF BADASSDOM (you’ll love hearing the two discuss what the film went through after the actual production), to landing the role of “Paul Kinsey” on the legendary TV series MAD MEN...

The Movie Crypt: Ep 168: Jeff Katz  

Hollywood hero Jeff Katz has literally done it all and forever remained “one of us." As a studio executive for New Line Cinema Katz helped bring us FREDDY VS JASON and produced SNAKES ON A PLANE and SHOOT ‘EM UP before accepting a gig at FOX where he helped on WOLVERINE and bringing DEADPOOL into the studio before parting amicably on his own terms. As a writer he brought us such comics as FREDDY VS JASON VS ASH and he is also currently in active development on 10+ screenplays that he wrote including the remake of SLEEPAWAY CAMP. He’s worked for WCW and Ted Turner, he’s headed his very own network with GEEK WEEK, and he started his journey to accomplishing all of this with a simple bet that he made about the premiere of FREDDY’S NIGHTMARES when he was only 8 years old. One of the smartest, well spoken, and spirited guests you’ll ever hear on this program, Katz details his unusual journey through Hollywood in this epic conversation that touches on… well, everything.

Adam, Joe, and Arwen had so much fun with filmmaker Joe Carnahan (THE GREY, NARC, THE A-TEAM, SMOKIN’ ACES) that even THREE HOURS weren’t long enough! Carnahan shares his journey from an 11 year-old boy watching RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK to a man with one of the most exciting careers to watch in modern cinema. From the lessons he learned making NARC, to what it was like walking away from MISSION IMPOSSIBLE 3, to bringing the beloved A-TEAM to the big screen, to making difficult editorial decisions about a polar bear in 2011’s THE GREY (who’s wolves were better- Carnahan’s GREY wolves or Green’s FROZEN wolves?), to his highly anticipated upcoming projects like BAD BOYS 3 and UNCHARTED (which was announced only minutes before this recording took place)… Carnahan has more anecdotes, life lessons, triumphs, scars, and insight than the boys could possibly touch upon in just one episode. Your “Viewer Mail” is answered at LENGTH, the two Joe’s polish off an entire bottle of Brett Ratner’s "Hilhaven Lodge" whisky, Carnahan and Green duke it out debating "Jagger Vs. Tyler,” and the boys reveal more details than you can handle about this coming weekend’s epic 3-day long LIVE Movie Crypt broadcast to benefit SAVE A YORKIE RESCUE in this phenomenally entertaining and insanely fun episode!

With well over 100 genre movies on her resume, actress Tiffany Shepis (TROMEO & JULIET, SHARKNADO 2) is one of the biggest Scream Queens in horror. Listen as she discusses her career journey with Adam, Joe, and Arwen - starting with a small, innocent fib (or two) that helped land her first role, how she has continued to work so steadily over the years, what roles she will or will not do, how being a mother may have changed the way she chooses projects, what her advice is to aspiring actors, and lots and lots and lots of ball busting between this group of good friends. Also, ArieScope intern Austin Bosley stops by briefly to discuss his upcoming feature film THE PRODUCER and Adam and Joe drop the very first info about their upcoming charity event (August 5th-7th) where they will attempt to pull off a live episode of The Movie Crypt and stay awake on the air for 3 days to help raise money for a Yorkie shelter that needs your help.

The Movie Crypt: Ep 162: VFX with Sam Balcomb  

Filmmaker Sam Balcomb has written, directed, and done visual effects on some of the most popular and groundbreaking spectacles to hit the internet in the last few years. With his viral sensation WONDER WOMAN (2013), last year's METROID: THE SKY CALLS, and visual effects work on Adam's DIGGING UP THE MARROW and Joe's VENOM: TRUTH IN JOURNALISM, Sam and his company Rainfall Films have made a big name for themselves in the world of visual effects story-telling. Listen as Sam shares his journey, including his early exposure to the post-production process as the son of a Hollywood composer, self-teaching himself visual effects merely out of necessity, creating hugely popular "viral" web shorts simply for the love of doing them, and gaining the industry's attention with his stunning work. Just how long does it take to make a 3-5 minute VFX heavy short? What happens once the studio system comes calling to meet you? Just how much preliminary work goes into even just being considered for a VFX job and how often does it actually pan out? In a world where VFX have become such a massive part of story-telling, how crucial is it for filmmakers to understand the actual mechanics of the process? Why should you always make sure your VFX artists are on-set when shooting those sequences and what can go wrong if you don't? Your "Viewer Mail" is answered, Adam shares his experiences on the road with TWISTED SISTER in Europe these past few weeks (you can see the photos on Adam's Instagram: @Adam_Fn_Green), and Joe is fresh off of his very first 'work-in-progress' screenings of his new movie MAYHEM in this terrific episode!

Listen as Rudy sits down with Adam, Joe, and Arwen to discuss his journey, with a heavy focus on how he survived and carried on with his life/career after suffering the devastating loss of his bandmate, friend, and musical brother Randy Rhoads in the tragic plane crash that broke the music world’s heart on March 18, 1982. From first picking up a guitar “just to try and get chicks”… to finding himself touring the world with Ozzy... to the morning that he was shaken out of bed when the private plane hit the tour bus... to learning that his best friend was gone… to not being able to enjoy playing anymore due to his devastating grief… to finding his musical joy again by stepping away from the Ozzy juggernaut to play music with his old friends in QUIET RIOT (“Metal Health” would go on to become one of the very biggest albums of all time) … to his amazing career that has followed in the decades since…. Sarzo bares his soul honestly and completely in this amazing 2 hour conversation that is the equivalent to an epic grief counseling session.

From R.A.’s father being affected by Agent Orange in the Vietnam War (several of R.A.’s siblings were born severely handicapped and tragically died far too young because of the chemical) to being signed to a major label by the time he was only 18 years old… to being blacklisted and banned from performing in clubs across America in his early years due to his reputation for being “too dangerous to work with”… to conquering his anger issues, earning a massive following despite the industry turning its back on him, and rising above it all to become an international success… to working with some of hip hop’s biggest stars (The Notorious B.I.G., Chuck D, Wu-Tang Clan, and Mobb Deep just to name a few) and discovering and championing new talent (Afro is currently blowing up huge)… to producing Frank Henenlotter’s BAD BIOLOGY and personally raising the money for the budget himself when push came to shove… R.A.’s story is a loud and clear reminder that nothing comes easy, that there are no free rides, and that you can’t give up no matter how dire things may seem.
