99: Making Genre Pictures in Canada: with RKSS and Jameson Parker
In our run up to our 100th episode, Becky introduces a new component to the show called, RCMPodcast: Independent Investigations. This series will take a deeper look at filmmakers and their movies, both Canadians and other nationalities working in Canada.
Fesh off their time at Sundance, Becky chats with the filmmakers RKSS and the producer Jameson Parker about their whole career to date, including their new film Summer of '84.
Chronologically discussing their whole filmmaking careers to date, we chat about genre filmmaking in Quebec and finding a place in English-speaking Canada, the glory of Godfrey Ho, their time at Sundance, dressing a Canadian city as 80's period America, and their unique directorial style.
For our filmmaking listeners, producer Jameson Parker fills you in on what producers are looking for in their projects and how to catch their attention.
This week's end credit music is composed by Le Matos.
Check out Summer of '84 in theatres starting August 10th 2018, and on VOD/iTunes ever after.
