55.0 Rock and Rule with Ilya Klymkiw

55.0 Rock and Rule with Ilya Klymkiw

This week on RCMPod, we're joined by filmmaker and writer Ilya Klymkiw as he gushes over 1983's animated rock spectacular "Rock and Rule". We talk about how to fit a music video into a typical 3 act structure, our modern casting wish list for a remake, a brief history of animation in the 1980's and where Care Bears come from. For an added bonus,  hear  Becky recounting her trip to a town full of mediums! It's a rock and rolling, Satan worshipping, furry appealing, good time. Ilya Klymkiw's work can be found at his website, check out the webcomic Seraphim comics, and the Dufferin Mall Podcast.

This week's end credit music is "My Name is Mok (Thanks a lot)" by Lou Reed. You know who Lou Reed is. You don't need us to link to his website. Just go listen to his stuff on Spotify this afternoon.


Illya Klymkiw is a good boy, and his friends seem to like him. He lives in Toronto with his beloved wife and beloved cat. Illya is a filmmaker, writer, producer and comic book artist. His professional accomplishments include directing grant-winning, festival-playing shorts, screenwriting for CBC and Corus Entertainment, and producing several popular web series.

Illya has recently ventured into the independent comic book scene, because it seemed like good clean fun. He has worked on two webcomics: Seraphim  and Book of Caillou. He is currently working on a third, a psychedelic sci-fi adventure. He insists it will be great.

You can try to slide into his DMs, but he will only respond in cat emojis.
