Behind The Lens #31 – Two Step, The Look Like People, & Carol Nguyen




On this week’s Behind The Lens, debbie lynn elias and I interviewed Two Step director Alex R. Johnson as he talked about how shooting in Texas reinvigorated him as a filmmaker (the movie, a tense thriller that Jim Thompson fans would appreciate, is terrific). MacLeod Andrews and Evan Dumouchel, stars and producers of They Look Like People (it’s another solid thriller – but this one tackles the intricate bond of friendship), also spent time on BTL to talk about their film.

Last but not least, Carol Nguyen,  a teen filmmaker with a ton of promise, also calls in to the show. Nguyen was the recipient of the Ed Elias Future Filmmaker Award (Special Mention for Animated/Experimental Film).

During BTL’s first segment, I talked about the recent Blu-ray release Adult Beginners and the DVD Into The Grizzly Maze, two films I totally dig. And on the topic of movie love, debbie lynn elias also talks about TCM’s “Summer Under The Stars” programming that runs through August.

I’m always honored to guest host Behind The Lens, and this week is one of my favorite BTL shows. All three interviewees were insightful, and it also helped that I absolutely loved their respective work.
