In this episode, Emi features an interview with THREE-time Emmy-nominee, Jeremiah Baumbach! They discuss his latest project, the unique, visceral "Reel of Horror" film project! During the interview, Emi and Jeremiah discuss the Horror film genre, the details of the project, as well as all the talented artists working with him on it!
The Reel of Horror is unique in that it’s meant to be a very social experience where audiences can feel free to engage with one another throughout the film. People love to get scared and laugh at other people's fear. The Reel of Horror lets you do both. Since the inception, Baumbach and his crew have worked with a number of local haunted houses in central Florida to produce a film that features a cast of over 60 scare-actors including: clowns, vampires, zombies, ghosts, witches, and freaks. Additional production value comes in elaborate sets, created for these seasonal haunts, which include: an Egyptian tomb, slaughterhouse, saloon, and morgue. A lot of work goes into producing each vignette. Each scene involves costuming, makeup and prosthetics, choreographed camera moves, and post-production special effects.
