    Shriekfest Radio! Denise Gossett interviews filmmaker Brian Belefant!

    in Paranormal

    A long time ago, I was a copywriter.  I was at Scali McCabe Sloves, Chiat/Day, Stein Robaire Helm, Borders Perrin & Norrander, and BBDO, along with a couple of other companies that I thought were ad agencies because of the creative way they were named after people, but that turned out to be accounting firms or something. Somebody told me that you couldn't be a director unless you went to school for it, so I took a bunch of film classes at UCLA, NYU, and SVA, and even though some people might tell you otherwise, I managed to learn stuff. Then I started asking people to hire me to direct their commercials and some of them did.It's been about twenty years now, of me wearing a hat, wandering around on the set, and saying "cut" without getting into any trouble. I must be really good at it, too, because sometimes people ask me to do it over and over and not because I got it wrong and they want me to try again until I get it right. I even got a bunch of certificates and trophies and stuff -- including a really ugly hood ornament from the London International Advertising Awards.  And not just for commercials. I sometimes get to direct films -- which are just like commercials only they're longer and there's more talking and sometimes naked people in them -- and documentaries, which are just like commercials only the people you point the camera at usually know even less about how to make the film go than I do. 


    Brian won Best Horror Comedy short film in Shriekfest 2002 and had a screenplay finalist in 2002 as well with his script "The Lakeside Slasher".

    Keith Hamilton Cobb MRTR

    in Pop Culture

    Celebrating Over 150 Episodes!


    Hosts: Jamel, Derrick Dwayne and Flash Gotti


    #MyRealTalkRadio interviews Former ABC's All My Children Star: Keith Hamilton Cobb.


    This is where I try to make the story of my life appear interesting, isn't it? Well... I was born a poor Black child... But seriously, I dislike these immensely. I'm not sure I know how to be interesting, which I suspect at times I am, and not flagrantly self-aggrandizing, which I despise, at the same time... These are the facts: Nothing is particularly noteworthy until after I graduated from NYU Tisch School of the Arts in 1987. Prior to that, I was nominally studying English, and thinking I might become a professor of literature. or a novelist, or a high performance car mechanic... And really it's the unnoteworthy stuff that makes a guy who he is, and not the stuff that happens in the public eye... But, oh yeah, the facts... I trained as a stage actor. I'm still most at home while acting for the stage. I remain most specifically an actor, but have also written extensively, several pieces of short fiction and pieces for the stage. I am looking forward to directing for the stage again sometime in the future. And I am still intent on being in at least one quintessential police drama for the big screen. 

    I have been an acting coach, I photographer, a woodworker, a painter, a poet.
