24. Kickstarter

March 21st, 2013 · Comments

The boys are getting as close as humanly possible to being topical this week, with a look at the now-probably-not-topical-at-all Veronica Mars Movie Kickstarter campaign. Is this a paradigm shift? A new model for funding films? Exploitative? Against the spirit of crowdsourcing? All these questions and more are ummed and erred around by Joe and Ed, who do their very best to sound informed.

Along the way, they ponder what the success of the Veronica Mars campaign means to other cancelled TV projects such as Community, Terriers and Party Down and speculate wildly at just how much the campaign will end up splashing out on T-Shirts.

n.b. All comments made during this podcast about non-union Mexican film crews are done so purely in jest.

23. Film/Digital

March 18th, 2013 · Comments

As promised in the Ask Us Anything episode, the boys spend a bit of time pondering a question posed that was deemed too weighty to answer alongside the ones about Unicorns and Obi Wan Kenobi fighting Patrick Swayze. Using the recent documentary Side by Side as a jumping off point, Joe and Ed explore the ever changing relationship between celluloid and digital, tracing it's history, assessing the strengths of each medium and then asking if it really matters what format a film is shot on. To wrap the episode up, Joe and Ed run down their 10 favourite films shot digitally.

Listen, enjoy, rate and review!

22. Ask Us Anything

March 12th, 2013 · Comments

After spending more than a year choosing the subjects on which they show off their freeform waffling skills, Joe and Ed decided to hand the talking stick to you - the audience - to pick the topics of discussion. Selecting a wide range of questions volunteered via Facebook and Twitter, the boys find themselves debating hypothetical dust ups between nightclub bouncers and Jedi Knights, wondering why films seem to be so long these days and pondering on the scarcity of unicorns in motion pictures.

As always, listen, enjoy, rate and review!
