For current filmmakers, aspiring filmmakers, and those who just like a great movie, there is one podcast that you should be keeping up with. The Movie Crypt is hosted by genre filmmakers Adam Green and Joe Lynch, and each week they sit down to have a chat with a different celebrity or accomplished professional in the world of film to talk movies, technique, and the current state of the film industry today. This podcast has been called by Entertainment Weekly one of the top 20 podcasts to listen to in the year 2015, and many have touted it as an audio version of film school when it comes to a genuine look into the industry.
When it comes to hosting a podcast about film, there are no lack of qualifications with Adam Green and Joe Lynch. Adam Green is a well-known filmmaker with titles such as Hatchet, Digging Up the Marrow, and Frozen, while Joe Lynch is credited with Everly, Wrong Turn 2, and Knights of Badassdom. Heroes in the horror genre, these are seasoned professionals who are able to take a candid look at what it is to work in the film industry with some of the industry’s biggest names.
What makes The Movie Crypt even more special is its ability to give aspiring filmmakers and film enthusiasts a candid look at just what that career entails through personal stories. Guests on the show share all of the upsides, downsides, and medium-sides to working their way up in the film industry, as well as all of the details of their journeys through Hollywood. These are lessons and stories that listeners and fans of any genre aren’t going to get during film school, and they provide stories of real-life insight in a comical, heartwarming, and something heartbreaking way.
The Movie Crypt airs new podcast episodes each Monday that can be found on Geek Nation or through iTunes, and the new episode is available each week at 10am PST. Throughout each new episode, different guests will be showcased by having a sit down discussion with Adam and Joe, and since no two experiences are the same, neither are any two episodes of The Movie Crypt.
