D.P Andrew Droz Palermo on prepping and re-adapting for A Ghost...

Would you have guessed the bulk of A Ghost Story’s aesthetic was decided on set, day to day? I wouldn’t have, and I didn’t. The fact derailed everything I thought I knew about cinematographer Andrew Droz Palermo (You’re Next, Rich Hill, A Teacher) and Writer/Director David Lowery’s ( Ain’t Them Bodies Saints, Pete’s Dragon) formal motivations and forced the interview to operate in a spontaneous mode similar to the film’s production.

Sean Porter D.P || 20th Century Women || Interview

Sean Porter photographed two of my favorite films of 2016. Released first was Green Room, a brutal siege horror exercise which we talked about earlier in the year, and the other is 20th Century Women, which, during comparison, Sean describes as “a coming of age, sun-drenched, family dramedy”. They could not be more different. Although, in terms of his approach to exposure, are surprisingly similar. Sean deflates the conceptual stigma surrounding a fluid, less controlled set (and their practical limitations) and brings to light their ability to let intuition breathe.

Exclusive: TMP Interviews – Alex Ballar and Beau Nelson of Zombie...

“Nothing Kills A Buzz Like A Zombie Attack!” This is the catchy tagline for the movie Zombie Drugs, a film where comedy intersects with the horror of zombies created by recreational drugs. Vinny and Sebastian decide to set up shop in the only industry they know — the drug business. With the help of Sebastian’s jealous ex-girlfriend and her rich best friend, they set out to produce and sell a drug that gives a perfect high. The four of them take on the drug world, fighting mobsters, frat boys, and yes, even the occasional zombie.    

Just when we thought we knew everything about hanging out with the undead, Zombie Drugs gives us a bit of a new spin on zombiedom. Creator Alex Ballar and producer Beau Nelson of Manginity Films sat down with TMP to discuss their film Zombie Drugs and tell us a little bit about their thoughts on the undead.
