Filmmaker Azazel Jacobs (Momma’s Man, TerrI) is the first guest. Jacobs has directed a 6-part series for HBO called Doll & Em. The show is loosely based on the relationship of actresses Emily Mortimer and Dolly Wells. When Dolly suffers a painful break-up, she agrees to go to Hollywood and become her friend & actress Emily’s personal assistant during the shoot of her current movie. An idea that starts from a genuine place of friendship and love, soon becomes far more complicated than the two besties could have ever predicted. The show has just recently begun airing.

Second guest is first feature filmmaker Daniel Patrick Carbone whose movie Hide Your Smiling Faces opens on Friday, March 30th in New York and already currently available on iTunes and Amazon Instant  Video as well as on demand. Visit the movie’s website for complete details about where you can see the film. The film had its US premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival last year and  is being distributed by Tribeca Film.

Last up is Kenn Lowy, owner of the Brooklyn Heights Cinema. Kenn was one of the first guests on the podcast and is back to discuss his Indiegogo campaign to raise funds for digitizing the theater. There is still time to contribute to this very worthwhile project; the movie’s future depends on your generosity.

Also mentioned in the podcast was another project that I am currently involved with; helping to program a number of films on Brooklyn Independent Media’s new high definition channel. In this video segment, my fellow programmers and I introduce each other BRIC’s viewers on their daily show BK Live.
