Need Some Advice to Start Your Career in Filmmaking?

Talk You To DeathDo you like to hear from different people in the film industry? From directors to composers to producers to actors, they all have insight to this crazy world that we follow. If you’re one of those that are trying to break into the film industry, what better people to get advice from than those that are already in the trenches. Filmmaker/author Danny Draven has written a book called Talk You To Death: Filmmaking Advice from the Mavericks of the Horror Genre, which consists of interviews with over 40 different people in the industry, asking for their own perspective on how to succeed in that crazy business of filmmaking.

Within these pages, you’ll hear from directors like Roger Corman, Jeff Burr, James Cullen Bressak, Mick Garris, Tibor Takacs, Mike Mendez, James Wan, Stuart Gordon, David DeCoteau, composers Charlie Clouser, John Ottman, John Debney, actors William Butler, Kane Hodder, Michael Berryman, Robert Englund, Reggie Bannister, Debbie Rochon, and many more, all giving the reader their own insight to the industry.

Even if you don’t ever plan on getting into filmmaking, I’m sure these guys are going to have some entertaining stories. I know I’ll be adding it to our library.

Mystery Photo 6-9

Looks like we missed posting this again yesterday, once again. Think I might need to get a secretary or something! Our last photo was from the recently (and highly recommended) released From a Whisper to a Scream, directed by Jeff Burr, who I have to say is one of the nicest guys one could meet. Anyway, this shot is from the twisted little segment with Clu Gulager and his demon baby. Fun stuff there, folks! Kudos out to the following that sent in the correct answer: Aaron Christensen, Mark Turner, and Will Wilson.

Now on to this week’s photo. This might be a little tougher…but then again, that’s part of the fun, isn’t it? Now a title might jump into your brain but we’ll tell you right now, it is not one with that guy in a hockey mask. But hopefully you’ll be able to figure it out without your head ending up like this poor fellow!

Just send us your answer to Good luck.


Jeff Burr Interview

While we didn’t conduct this interview, our good buddy and friend of the Krypt, Aaron Christensen did and it is well worth your time. Mr. Burr is one hell of a nice guy, who I’ve had the pleasure of meeting a couple of times over the years and doesn’t get the credit that he should. So not only would I sugguest everyone pick up a copy of Shout Factory’s latest release, From a Whisper to a Scream, but take a few minutes to read AC’s interview with Burr.
