On this installment of The PAPER STREET Podcast, Shawn Talley and Becky Sayers discuss the latest on Amazon screening South By Southwest 2020, and what future festivals are doing to better the deal for filmmakers who opt into online premieres. The hosts also talk about their early genre influences, devouring DVD extras and making-of documentaries, and how old they were when they first picked up a camera.
They're joined by filmmaking wunderkind Emily Hagins (MY SUCKY TEEN ROMANCE, COIN HEIST), who talks about making her first feature at only 12 years old, her love of horror-comedy, and writing compelling young characters. Also on the show: the hosts play a round of Not-So-Rapid Fire 15 with Emily, talk up Jeff Ray's documentary Missio: Love Me Whole, plus Becky's Deep Cut Slasher of the Week, and some thoughts on ROAR and... Dawson's Creek?
