    Filmmaker Joe Basile -- Director & Writer of WEST END

    in Radio

    Filmmaker Joe Basile’s movie WEST END premiered at Asbury Park’s historic Paramount Theatre on, April 6th, 2013 and was honored by the Garden State Film Festival with Best Homegrown Feature Award. The same year WEST END was awarded SOHO’s Pick at the Soho International Film Festival. Joe has been busy promoting his film and it will be screened at various East Coast locations including June 3 at the Hoboken International Film Festival, June 6 at the New Jersey International Film Festival, and June 30 at the Manhattan Film Festival. Joe states, “WEST END is my homage to the gritty crime dramas of the 70’s that made me want to make movies. Films that evoke emotion and make an audience feel the inner struggle of its characters.” The movie has a cast of talented actors including Eric Roberts, Neal Bledsoe, Joe Nieves, Peter Onorati, Melissa Archer, and Lou Martini, Jr. Joe feels extremely privileged to have shot the last film on the NJ coast before Superstorm Sandy’s devastation. This was the last movie shot in Seaside Heights, and the film captured some of the most iconic locations at the Jersey Shore. Actually WEST END was shot entirely on location at the Jersey Shore. Watch the trailer here. For Jersey native Joe Basile, the Director/Writer, it was imperative that WEST END be true to its roots.

    Filmmaker Vito LaBruno - Writer & Director of The Last American Guido

    in Radio

    How does a Jersey City Police Officer become an award winning filmmaker? Vito LaBruno grew up with a passion for film and began screen-writing in 2004. “I had done a little theater and acting in high school,” said LaBruno. “I auditioned for a lead role in A Bronx Tale, and I even got a few callbacks. But I always had ideas for scripts. In 2006 I decided to take a script-writing workshop and the teacher sent my script to Henry Winkler (aka The Fonz). He actually wrote me back. He said he really liked the script and the plot and he wrote back to me and gave me a lot of pointers on things I could do to improve it and make it into something a producer might be interested in.” Vito decided to enhance his skills as a screenwriter by studying with a writing coach. In 2011, he wrote and directed a short film Business is Dead. The film has garnered 3 film festival awards, including Best Short (Audience award), Best Short (Jury award) and Best Director. The success of Business is Dead lead Vito to write, direct, and produce his first feature film, a romantic comedy titled The Last American Guido which was shot in the fall of 2012 in several NJ cities including Hoboken, Jersey City, Bayonne, Nutley and Maywood. Inspired by his older brothers, LaBruno said he dreamed up the storyline when imagining what life would be like for a guido living in a world that has passed him by as he struggles to be true to himself. The Last American Guido premiered in 2013 at the Loew’s Landmark Theater in Jersey City and was also screened at the Garden State Film Festival in 2014.
