When did you and David Branin start the LA Talk Radio show Film
David and I began Film Courage
in April of 2009. David and his Night Before the Wedding lead
actor, Gregor Collins, were set to be interviewed by another radio
show on LA Talk Radio in March of 2009. One of the girls that
played a porn star in NBTW was scheduled to be interviewed with
them. Unfortunately, she had to cancel an hour before the interview.
We tried to contact everyone we could think of in the film to
replace her to no avail. We drove to the studios of LA Talk Radio.
I sat in the waiting room. The host of the show (Kip Brown from
‘In The Can’) prompted me to join David and Gregor
on the air. I did and I loved it.
Later on that day, Dave mentioned
that he wanted to host a radio show, as he had done in college.
I said “Sounds fun. Looks like I will be joining you.”
Which Film Courage show
was spread virally the most through
There have been so many Film
Courage episodes which have received numerous responses from listeners.
However, the show with the most listens so far has been our second
interview with ‘Ink’ filmmakers Jamin and Kiowa Winans.
Ink has a very loyal fan base. The film is amazing. David and
I can’t say enough great stuff about it. The fans of Ink
and Film Courage enjoyed the interview because of the story behind
making Ink, the quality of film that it is, and how the studio
system has not granted it the respect it deserves.
Have you gotten acting work
due to having your Film Courage show?
I have landed a few
roles for a couple commercials and now a web series.
Also, it has been strangely
refreshing how other radio programs/podcasts have wanted to interview
David and myself about the radio show and filmmaking. We have
two more radio interviews with other shows coming up this month
and we love it. We are having a blast doing the show. It has changed
