Independent film and distribution with Christopher Sakr

Sam and TJ get to sit down with the many-talented Chris Sakr to discuss a whole lot. We start with his film, “Light,” and that takes us all kinds of places, including the culture of Lebanon, the nature of film fests and distribution, and crowd-funded projects. Don’t miss Part 2!

Original Post from  http://inmediasrad.com/imr-news-821/IMR News: 8/21Ahoy sailors! TJ here. Just thought I’d check in and see how you’re doing. How ARE you doing? You look great.
Sam and I participated in the Portland 48-hour Film Project a couple weeks back. Mostly Sam. I’d love to take credit for it, but really I barely chipped in during the initial brainstorming session. Friends of the show Amarette Gregor, Josh Winegarner, Mychael Foster, and others did a heckuva job. The film is called “Racer in the Void,” and you can see it here:

In other news, we had a lovely conversation with Scott Engdahl, a Portland improviser, actor, writer, and wearer of many hats. I urge you to listen if you haven’t already.
Click here to learn more about Bath Night, an absurdly good sketch comedy show featuring Scott Engdahl and written by Sean McGrath. It’s at Shaking the Tree Studio, located at SE 14th and Stark. It ends on August 30, so get your tix now! Seriously, it’s a whole lot of fun. I think movie buffs will especially get a kick out of it. Also, it’s a great excuse to support PDX theater!
Be sure to check out the Brody Theater website for information about improv shows and classes. I just took an improv class there, and sweet lord is it worth it. It is a ton of fun and not scary AT ALL. You should check it out if you’re even a tiny bit interested.
Thanks for listening, watching, reading, masticating, gesticulating, prognosticating, and other verbs-ing. Give us a shout if you have any comments or questions!
Regards,
TJ

Improv Comedy with Scott Engdahl

So Portland has a great comedy scene that’s only getting better – Sam and TJ get some insight from improv teacher/performer Scott Engdahl about all kinds of things! Portland, how improv applies to life, and stories from his performances past. And you better bet they included a skit in this one.

Cat Couple

This photo tells its own story, but I’ll give you a little context.It’s the Q&A at the end of the 48 Hour Film Project screening for Group D. Friend of the show Amarette Gregor (in red) hops up on stage after the Q&A begins and says “I just wanted to come up here because I think we’re a little under-represented, right ladies?” to great applause. She then encourages more women to participate in the 48 Hour Film Project. These dudes did some great work, but jeez, that is a lot of dudes on one stage. Amarette and Sam (in the snazzy vest) did much of the heavy lifting on the 48HFP entry “Racer in the Void,” coming to a YouTube near you.

Field Report: Alejandro Jodowrosky

The films of Jodowrosky were playing at the Hollywood Theater recently and seriously impressed Sam. So much so he had to tell TJ and the world. The guys talk about surrealism and religion and TJ may have had an out-of-body experience. Apologies for the unedited nature of the episode!
