The Troubles with Trekkies: Indie Apocalypse

June 22, 2016

Ty and Lou go beyond Star Trek with Dan Thale of Star Trek Futures and Alec Peters of Star Trek Axanar to talk about fan films and the troubles that can arise when creating a project with an existing intellectual property. Both our guests share the inspiration behind their projects and totally geek out on their knowledge of the Star Trek universe, but ultimately find themselves up against barriers in the form of fan outrage and studio legalities. We cover J.J.'s questionable announcement about the lawsuit and what that means for the future of Axanar, and we continue our geek conversation with Crysstal Hubbard covering more superhero TV, movie and comic news. And finally Lou shares his ultimate movie mashup idea. Not to be missed.

Artistic Expression vs. Audience Reception: Indie Apocalypse

June 15, 2016

Ty and Lou are joined by David Villa to talk about getting your feet wet as a new independent film-maker with a web series. Our discussion touches on the fact that individual film knowledge, education and experience are all very different, and that the individual beliefs a film-maker may hold about production quality are outweighed by the audience’s requirements to pay attention. Ty talks about the mass cancellations happening on TV and why the Nielsen ratings negatively impact programming and Lou beefs on Without a Box … again. Whaaa-aaat?. This is a great episode for all film-makers as we debate the idea of artistic view vs. production quality.

Shane P. Allen Gets Sullyed: Indie Apocalypse

June 4, 2016

This week Ty and Lou are back with Sofia Carrillo to talk with Shane P. Allen about acting. Shane got his start as an actor in the 80s, took some time to raise a family and is now back in the game. We discuss how the industry has changed, how to react to working with celebrities and how commercial work and background extra work can allow actors time to focus on projects they want to do. Shane also shares a few personal stories from the set and what his experience was like working on Clint Eastwood’s upcoming film Sully with Tom Hanks and Aaron Eckhart.

Ty and Lou talk with long-time supporter of 2AM Burrito, Dante Dumas, to talk about acting, owning a character type to achieve success and how surprised Dante is by the amount of acting talent in San Diego. We talk about his current crowd-funding campaign for Broken Choices on IndieGogo and what the project is all about. Ty talks a little about guilty pleasure TV, Lou magnetically attracts more praise (we not sure how that is possible) and we talk a little about what to expect from Ty and Lou over the summer.

Soldiers of Misfortune: Indie Apocalypse

April 12, 2016

Ty and Lou talk with the creators of Soldiers of Misfortune only to break the internet again. We learn how this ragtag group got together to create a seven part web series about a group of guys who may or may not have been in the military, and are now trying to survive the real world. We get their take on typecasting, hobbyist film-making, beer and why Mark knows way too much about George. Soldiers of Misfortune is kind of directed by big head writer Jordan Jacobo who also stars with the pretty one, George Jack, and some other white guy that's the comedy relief, maybe? ... what was his name again? He's on some XXX podcast or something, but I digress, Soldiers of Misfortune is a hilarious web series produced in San Diego currently coming to the end of a crowd-funding campaign for a second season and could use your help.

Holy Box Office Drop Batman!: Indie Apocalypse

April 4, 2016

Ty and Lou reflect on the Night of 1000 Burritos and then jump into the battle of the century ... or so we thought. SPOILER ALERT! We welcome back DC Comics experts Rich Howard and Crysstal Hubbard to discuss Batman V Superman, all the critical response, both good and bad, and what it means for the future of the DC Cinematic Universe. Rich and Crysstal provide great insight into how they received the film as fans, while Ty and Lou approach it from a film-making standpoint. This episode is quite non-combatant in opinions as we approach the film from every angle and share what we enjoyed and what left us uninspired. This is our longest episode to date, chock full of great facts on DC comics, cartoons and films with two of our favorite guests. SPOILER ALERT! If you have not seen the movie, please do so before listening to this episode. You have been warned!

Slap Worthy: Indie Apocalypse

March 24, 2016

Almost a year after we started Indie Apocalypse, we are having a screening for Slap Worthy, a film that Ty and Lou collaborated on. This week we celebrate by talking with some of the actors in the film. Dominic Lerma, Sofia Carrillo and Shelly Ro drop by the Burrito Lounge to talk about their experiences as actors and what it was like filming Slap Worthy a year ago. We find out what they are most excited for as Slap Worthy screens as a Night of 1000 Burritos and what's in store for them next in their careers. We veer off our usual path a few times in this episode, but it is all in good fun as we talk about the film, family and doing what you love.
