KQEK.com --- Interview with Victor Kanefsky, director of Art Bastard (2016)

Victor Kanefsky discusses the art of editing, structure, balance, and pacing in a conversation that spans both his latest directorial work, Art Bastard (2016), a lively documentary on painter Robert Cenedella, and his lengthy career as an editor in many genres, including horror (Ganja & Hess) and documentary (Style Wars).

KQEK.com --- Interview with Cary Mansfield, Varese Sarabande's V.P. of A&R

In what’s hopefully the first in a series of vinyl related podcasts, I speak with Cary Mansfield, Varese Sarabande’s Vice President of A&R, about the label's recent trio of limited LP editions of catalogue titles – John Powell’s The Bourne Identity (2002), Don Davis’ The Matrix (1999), and Marco Beltrami’s Scream (1996) and Scream 2 (1997) – and the quirks and nuances of pressing an LP and the market itself, being more collector-oriented that when I began collecting soundtrack LPs in the late 1980s.

Visit KQEK.com for a review of Varese Sarabande’s Bourne Identity soundtrack LP, and some links on documentaries and vintage industrial shorts covering the history of vinyl records, the long-playing LP, and extreme vinyl collectors.

KQEK.com --- Interview with film composer Mike Higham, Part 1 (2016)

In a radical move for director Tim Burton, the score for his latest film was written by the collaborative team of Mike Higham and Matthew Margeson, both skilled in composing, orchestrating, and arranging for a diversity of projects (including several Hans Zimmer productions). 

I’ve divided the podcast on Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children into separate halves, starting with Matthew Margeson in Part 1, and Mike Higham in Part 2. Additionally, coming soon is a separate and more detailed Q&A with Higham on his other specialized skill, an ace music editor.
