BONUS Episode: Big Time Adolescence director Jason Orley and DP Andrew Huebscher

It’s a very special Shelter In Place episode as we stay home and dig into our archives to bring you some past podcasts you might have missed. Enjoy our show and these films from the comfort of your safe space.

Illya sat down with director Jason Orley and DP Andrew Huebscher during 2019’s Sundance Film Festival to talk about their movie about arrested development, “Big Time Adolescence.” Starring SNL’s Pete Davidson, Griffin Gluck, and John Cryer, the story follows a teen whose idolization and friendship with a twenty-something stoner college dropout has destructive effects on his life. Orley and Huebscher discuss the close director/DP working relationship on the movie, creating the look of the film, working with production company American High, and using the Chemical Wedding Artemis Pro App and Hollywood Camerawork shot designer App to plan out where to place the camera and lights.

You can stream Big Time Adolescence right now on Hulu.

Holiday Special 2018 with Alonso Duralde

The Cinematography Podcast Holiday Special 2018 with Alonso Duralde

Alonso Duralde, film critic and author of Have Yourself a Movie Little Christmas, discusses great (and
not so great) Christmas movies to watch.

Hosts Illya Friedman and a reluctant Ben Rock sit down with film critic and Christmas movie expert
Alonso Duralde. Alonso shares his extensive knowledge of holiday films from his book, Have Yourself a
Movie Little Christmas. Ben insists his movie, Alien Raiders, falls into the Christmas movie category,
along with other movies with Christmas as a backdrop such as Die Hard and Gremlins. They discuss
favorites such as A Christmas Story, It’s a Wonderful Life, and National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation.
A few movies fall into the darker category such as Eyes Wide Shut, The Ice Harvest, and some
are absolute stinkers like Six Weeks featuring Dudley Moore and Mary Tyler Moore. Alonso also points
out a hard to find gem worth a look called I’ll Be Seeing You.
With so many choices on the holiday movie spectrum, will Ben open his heart to the Christmas spirit or
will it stay two sizes too small?
