Host Cyrus Webb welcomes back Filmmaker and Author Del Weston to #ConversationsLIVE to discuss what inspired his book series THE TOP 100 INDIE FILMMAKERS IN THE WORLD and take you into book one
Filmmakers Vohn Regensburger, Wash Westmoreland, Richard Glatzer, and Chris Bruno talk about their new movies: A Remarkable Life and The Last of Robin Hood. Regensburger is the writer/director of the first film, which stars Bruno, who also helped with the writing and served as one of the producers. Glatzer and Westmoreland are the writers/directors of the second offering to be discussed. Film critic Mack Bates will co-host.
A Remarkable Life tells the story of a man who finds his life falling apart and is forced to examine his identity, his manhood and his sense of self. Lenny (played by Bruno) faces loss of his job, a son with Asperger's Syndrome, and a wife who's fallen in love with the son's female doctor. It's a highly entertaining film - but one that gives us a lot to think about. Director Regensburger also composed the impressive music score, just as he did for his first film, Last of the Romantics.
The Last of Robin Hood follows Errol Flynn's scandalous affair with a star-struck teenage girl. Kevin Kline plays Flynn in his later years -- not the heartthrob from The Adventures of Robin Hood. Dakota Fanning and Susan Sarandon play the young girl and her mother who enables the affair, respectively. This fascinating film deals with fame and the high price it can exact. Glatzer and Westmoreland have also written and directed Quinceanera, Pedro, The Fluffer and Grief.
Amy Beth is delighted to welcome filmmakers Pamela Hogan and Connie Shulman, who capture the their friend actress and writer Laury Sacks through her struggles, diagnosis and death from a rare and virulent form of dementia in young middle-age in a powerfully moving new documentary Looks Like Laury, Sounds Like Laury.
We also discuss the long-anticipated series finale of the epic show Mad Men. Now that all the speculation and theories have gone to dust, did Weiner & co live up to the hype? Weigh in.
And the usual hoopla: Free flow Pop Culture convo, Inspiration to Action shout-outs, humor, music and more!

Next up on my Filmmakers Series is Phil Falcone and John De Meo, who co-produced and wrote the film Joe’s War. The movie also marks the directing debut of Falcone. Premiered at the Garden State Film Festival, Joe’s War is the compelling story of Joe Caruso, a young Marine who attempts to return to his previous life upon returning home from the War on Terror. Watch the trailer here. The movie vividly depicts the daily struggles of facing up to and dealing with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and the devastating effects on family and friends. Upon his return home, now former Marine Sergeant Caruso attempts to seamlessly fall back into his routine with the help of his family and friends, all the while coping with his life changing overseas battle. Joe continues on a downward spiral, and in an attempt to regain control of his life, he enlists the help of some new friends and the aid of a therapist played by Armand Assante. Joe's War presents a realistic view of life with PTSD, and the film has many scenes that are difficult to watch. PTSD isn’t exclusive to the military; individuals with other mental illnesses are at higher risk, and women are twice as likely to develop PTSD than men. Approx 55% of US military personnel returning home from Iraq and Afghanistan seek health care services from the VA. In 2013, the VA spent about $600 million for PSTD treatment. Even though veterans are only 7% of the population, they account for 20% of suicides. And this needs to stop now. After the interview, please check After Hours at Jersey Coastal Live for more info.

Growing up in the late 80's Michael developed his love of film spending endless hours alongside his father, an avid movie buff before him who would often out of fun quiz him on the various film watched. From Vhs rental's to the weekly family trip to "the show" Film was ingrained into Michael's character. It wasn't until his father showed him the first "Back to The Future" film that Michael knew he would dedicate his life to the art of film.
Teeming with imagination, Michael was never short of ideas. Always creating short stories, daydreaming and filling his head with the many narratives of 90's. As time passed and his interest grew his parents encouraged him to seek out classes and workshops that would help him perfect his craft. After graduating both High School and a Production workshop in the same year Michael went on to Columbia College Chicago where he completed his Bachelor of Fine Arts in Film and Video in spring 2005. As Staff Director of Puissant Productions, Michael brings his creative enthusiasm and energy to the team. Michael is currently Directing the feature film Untitled Zombie Movie set to release October 2015.

The ANU spiritual Order is a way of learning that allows the student to place themselves at the center of the learning experiences as opposed to memorizing rituals, names, and protocol that serve little when it comes down to reality reconstruction.
This class series is a hardcore spiritual initiation into the deeper truths of indigenous metaphysics and natural power.
