Behind the Lens

Episode #152

February 1st, 2018 / 1:03:29

BEHIND THE LENS just keeps on rolling along as we welcome MARIO VAN PEEPLES and LISA FRANCE to this week’s show.

A powerhouse in the industry, writer/director/actor/producer MARIO VAN PEEPLES is live talking about his latest series on SyFy Channel- SUPERSTITION. A riveting chilling thriller, you’ll enjoy hearing Mario talk about creating the series’ big screen feel with exemplary production values, complex characters, and fascinating storylines steeped in historical fact and legend. With the Season One finale just aired, the fate of Season Two hangs in the balance with a rapidly growing fanbase. Involved at every level of production (including directing 8 episodes), it’s a joy to hear Mario talk about this incredible journey from script to screen.

Then pro basketball player turned stuntwoman turned filmmaker LISA FRANCE joins us talking about her new documentary ROLL WITH ME. Fresh off a successful showing at Slamdance, as you will learn in this conversation with Lisa, ROLL WITH ME is the very definition of guerrilla filmmaking as Lisa and a ragtag skeleton crew embark on a cross-country journey with the film’s subject Gabriel Cordell who is attempting a 3000 mile roll from Santa Monica, California to Long Island, New York.  But this isn’t just any journey. Cordell is a paraplegic, recent drug-addict, and is riding his wheelchair across the country.  While moviegoers will be gobsmacked on hearing Lisa talk about the filmmaking journey, filmmakers will find Lisa’s experience particularly inspiring as she goes in-depth talking about securing equipment, financing, and yes, editing 4000 hours of footage.
