When I found out that Kerri’s (@sixuntilme) husband wrote the screenplay for a major motion picture, I knew I wanted to get him on my podcast. Believe it or not, there was a moment before Sundance that I was going to have Chris Sparling on my podcast. Then the movie premiered, was picked up my Lionsgate and the next thing I knew it, every movie I went to see this summer had a preview featuring Ryan Reynolds in a coffin. Lucky for me, Chris was able to spend some of his busy schedule talking with me about the experience of getting his film made and about his other happenings in the film industry. Do yourself a favor: listen to this podcast, go see Buried, and then if you have time…listen to this podcast again.
This week I’m joined by the screenwriter for the movie ‘Buried’, Chris Sparling. We spend a good portion of the podcast talking about the process and experiences that led to his movie being made including the time spent working on the script and Skyping across the Atlantic Ocean with the film’s director. Also discussed were the differences between the Sundance Film Festival and the Toronto International Film Festival and what it’s like hanging out with M. Night Shyamalan. Episode fifty-four was a blast to record. Believe me, you’re in for a treat. Enjoy.
