[5 mins. 24 secs.] President of Entertainment & Co-founder of the blockchain entertainment studio SingularDTV, Kim Jackson, is the first guest. I first met Kim Jackson when I was asked to moderate a Q&A for a film she produced, Blue Caprice, back some years ago. Kim is finally appears on the podcast to discuss Singular DTV, a pioneer which is laying the foundation for a decentralized entertainment industry. Building the future of rights management, project funding, and peer-to-peer distribution, SingularDTV’s platform empowers artists and creators with powerful tools to manage projects from development to distribution. The company has some exciting initiatives coming up, a few of which we touch upon in this conversation. Check out the website for more details.
[34 mins. 32 secs.] Next up, editor and producer Max Heller makes his feature directing debut with the screwball romantic comedy, Born Guilty. The movie stars Rosanna Arquette as Judy, a lonely and frazzled New York social worker who can’t resist the urge to intervene in her son Marty’s life. Meanwhile, Marty (Jay Devore) is trying to be creative in his advertising career and manage a romantic relationship at the same time, on top of constantly talking his mother off the ledge. When Marty’s free- spirited Aussie pal Rawl (David Coussins) shows up, Marty hires Rawl to see Judy and restore her to health any way it takes. Director Max Heller’s heartfelt, ensemble comedy is filled with wry, sly, funny and sexy connections reminiscent of Nora Ephron, Neil Simon, Woody Allen, The Farrelly Brothers and Rob Reiner’s romantic concoctions. Born Guilty will be opening nationally on Friday, May 11th as well as on SVOD. New Yorkers can see the film at AMC Empire 25 in Times Square where I’ll be moderating some Q&A’s along with Max! Join us for an evening of fun, just in time for Mother’s Day weekend.
