Escape! Sometimes we seek the darkness of the theater as an escape from our day to day drudgery. Sometimes when we do, the very story on the screen is one of escape. Characters who desperately need to get out of a place, situation or even state of mind. This week on CinemaJaw we tunnel through the walls of Escape Movies!
Joining us is a guest who has made his own contributions to escapism, Andrew Melzer! Andrew is a writer and filmmaker who has been directing comedy shorts since he was 10. He has directed numerous short films and web series that have been featured in film festivals across the US and Canada. His sci-fi-comedy series Greg PRIME won R/webseries’ “Best Web-Series” award and was selected in the Youngcuts International FIlm Festivals Top 10 Grand PRIX. Andrew has also written and produced two animation pilots, most recently The Magic Hour for Nickelodeon. His Latest project, The Street Wizard’s Apprentice is available soon on Vimeo and is currently making the festival rounds. You’d do well to escape into his work!
