    Filmmaker Steven Loring: Producer & Director of “The Age of Love”

    in Radio

    The nature of love is one of life’s great mysteries. Scientists have tried, but cannot explain why one person loves another. We know that humans don’t outgrow their need for love or companionship. And what about love in the 65 and older crowd, which is the fastest growing age group in the US. Author Leo Buscaglia, known as Dr. Love said, “Relish love in your old age! Aged love is like aged wine; it becomes more satisfying, more refreshing, more valuable, more appreciated, and more intoxicating!” Social Documentary Filmmaker Steven Loring’s first feature film, The Age of Love, follows the humorous and poignant adventures of thirty seniors in Rochester, NY who sign up for a first-of-its-kind speed dating event exclusively for 70-90-year-olds. From anxious anticipation through the dates that follow, it's an unexpected tale of intrepid seniors who lay their hearts on the line, and discover how dreams and desires change, or don't change, from first love to the far reaches of life. In this film, Loring saw an opportunity to break social and generational barriers by looking at seniors not in terms of singular talents or specific communities, but through shared, human desires. Loring had a question: Do decades of life and loss constrict our hearts, or might time develop them in unexpected ways? By telling a story involving the universal quest for love, he connects these seniors directly to the mainstream through situations to which all can relate. Regardless of age, who doesn’t understand loneliness, desire, or the search for love? The movie’s tagline says it all – It’s never too late to date.

    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.
