    Filmmaker Michael L. Boylan: Writer & Director of “The Radio”

    in Radio

    “No art passes our conscience in the way film does, and goes directly to our feelings, deep down into the dark rooms of our souls” said the late Swedish Filmmaker Ingmar Bergman. It’s time for my annual tribute to the spirit of the Independent Filmmakers and the films they create. Often working with little or no budget, these intrepid writers, directors, and producers (often the same person) rely on their passion, patience, and perseverance to get their film completed. Indie films are often screened at local, national, or international film festivals, and some are ultimately bound for glory and released to theaters. Michael L. Boylan of Pennant Films in Atlantic Highlands is the first Filmmaker in the series. He says, “I would always look around as a child and imagine what I was seeing was a movie. I would see two lovers speaking, a bird chirping, a man running and make it all into a movie in my head. Editing each shot with my brain until I could play it back in its entirety.” Michael’s latest short film is The Radio, about a timid boy who gets love advice from his recently deceased uncle through a vintage transistor radio. The Radio will be premiered May 8th at Atlantic Cinemas in Atlantic Highlands. Last year another of Michael’s films, The Baseball Card, was an Official Selection of the Garden State Film Festival. This is Part 1 of my Filmmaker Series. After the interview, please check After Hours at Jersey Coastal Live for more info.

    Filmmaker Chris Eilenstine: Writer & Director of "The Soulless"

    in Radio

    Chris Eilenstine wants you to forget everything you know about the living dead. The Soulless is a post-apocalyptic story about a father and daughter surviving a zombie apocalypse that has wiped out most of humanity. The two main characters are David his daughter Nicole. Their story begins on Z Day, when the plague is released and most of humanity is wiped out. Nicole and her father find they have special immunities and abilities; and the zombie population doesn’t attack them. They can walk among the zombies without fear of being eaten. The story becomes about two people forming strong family bonds and surviving together, learning what it means to be a father and a daughter in a way that few people ever do. The word zombie first appeared in The Oxford English Dictionary in 1819, but the first introduction of the word into the English-speaking world was an 1889 article in Harper's Magazine called The Country of the Comers-Back by journalist Lafcadio Hearn. While learning local customs of the Caribbean, Hearn came across a legend of corps cadavres or walking dead. The fear of zombies was tied to the practices of voodoo where it is possible for their idea of a soul to be removed and replaced by a god or sorcerer. Voodoo was deeply connected with the forced work and slavery of the people of the Caribbean; the main fear was that it'd be possible after death for a sorcerer to reanimate your corpse into an obedient drone. Meet Filmmaker Chris Eilenstine and find out more about his interest in all things zombie. After the interview, visit After Hours at Jersey Coastal Live for more information.
