DJ Roshay is as insightful and gifted with films as he is with music, and his YouTube channel Roshay Reviews has all the proof. In the second half of our previous conversation, we shift gears into film talk, discussing Wonder Woman as political device, race and gender in film and art, and how to have the most productive exchange about issues. We also cover lots of films from 2016 and 2017, talk favorite filmmakers, and explore hidden elements of cinema. It's the film nerdiest!

Comedian & Filmmaker Graham Elwood (First Nations Comedy Experience, Comedy Film Nerds, Earbuds, Laffghanistan) talks about his blended life experience as comic and filmmaker, political vigilante and podcaster, revealing levels to an already mulit-layered persona that I did not expect. Between laughs, we engage in a charged discussion of corporate profit motives vs. identity politics, the intentional media distraction, and regular injustices we've grown blind to. But we also talk about 70s cinema, the rigors of making a documentary, his amazing doc Earbuds, the LA Podcast Festival, and infusing creative work with meaning.
Filmmaker Dito Montiel (The Clapper, Man Down, A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints) has quickly created a masterful library of powerful, tense, thought provoking films, and he's just getting started. He shares the keys to that depth of craft in a lively talk about his new film The Clapper (out now!), New York, family dynamics, personal history, and just going for it. He also reveals a few intense stories from being on set (and is ridiculously humble about the great performances he gets from actors). Additionally, we cover his long collaboration with his talented editor (and previous guest) Jake Pushinsky, and his love for Al Pacino-- "Kleinfeld!!"
You have definitely watched stuntman Rene Mousseaux work, even though you didn't know it, from his role as Lt. Mur on Supergirl, to being Stunt Coordinator of the original "Old-Spice Guy", now he's making his own films. We peal apart the film business, talking micro budget filmmaking, owning your work to take control of your career (and life), and using your resources to work smarter. We discuss a handful of his numerous credits, how he went from making underwater documentaries for National Geographic to stuntwork, and plenty of anecdotes from his times on set with Steven Segal, Clint Eastwood and more. It's film nerdy, but hyper practical and stuffed with ideas about how to manage your creative work in the real world.
Check out clips from Rene Mousseux's work at rpmstunts.com, and have your mind blown by looking up his credits on IMDb.
