VIRGIN ALEXANDER podcast now posted!

Am happy to announce I finally got around to posting the podcast version of my interview with VIRGIN ALEXANDER's writing and directing team, Charlotte Barrett and Sean Fallon.  What a fun and energetic couple with great creative chemistry.  Looking forward to their future projects!  According toVA's official FB page copies of the film SOLD OUT on Amazon within hours of its release!  But, no fear, it is back in stock and available for purchase.  Fans have spoken...get your copy today!

It also appears my head is still up my (F)ass(bender)...despite my intentions last month's delightful interview with NOTHING LIKE DREAMING director Nora Jacobson did not get recorded, so, if you didn't catch it live you're out of luck.  But if you want to check out the film or any of Nora's other films you can purchase them direct from the OFF THE GRID PRODUCTIONS website!

OTGF interviews "Virgin Alexander" writing-directing team!

Get an inside look at the making of soon-to-be-released festival darling VIRGIN ALEXANDER when I interview the film's husband-and-wife writing/directing team, Charlotte Barrett and Sean Fallon, on KAFM today from 12:30-1:00 MST!  Listen live here or wait for the visit my podcast page in a few days.

VIRGIN ALEXANDER is an impressive debut feature that will leave you eagerly anticipating the next brainchild of this creative partnership.  An amusing look at the reality of life in the new economy and a playful take on sexuality in the modern age, VIRGIN ALEXANDER is a fun diversion and features a fresh performance by actor Bronson Pinchot.

This is easily the most fun interview I've conducted thus far and Charlotte and Sean have a chemistry that is palpable even from afar.  This energy shines through in their work and makes them a dynamic and effective creative team whose work will undoubtedly emerge in the coming years.

VIRGIN ALEXANDER will be available to the public on DVD starting July 17th with Netflix availability in the coming months.  Pre-order your copy now!
