Episode 130 – Discussing Franchise Filmmaking With Sean Connolly

On this week’s episode, we’re discussing the idea of franchise filmmaking with grad student Sean Connolly. Sean has worked in Hollywood, and gives us the studio perspective on franchise filmmaking and the decisions required in the studio system.

We start with What Have You Seen Lately, Jason is discussing the film Savages, and Andy is discussing Room 237 at the Cinema. We’re also reviewing the latest Star Trek film.

We then get into discussing franchise filmmaking, what films work, which films don’t, and how we are viewing film versus television in this new era.

It’s a long conversation, but worth listening to. Enjoy the episode.
