Producers Chris Moore (GOOD WILL HUNTING, PROJECT GREENLIGHT, AMERICAN PIE) and Josh Shader (AMERICAN PIE, THINK TANK) sit down with Adam and Joe to discuss their careers, the craft of producing, and their new Starz TV series THE CHAIR, a groundbreaking experiment that follows the experiences of two different filmmakers making feature films from the exact same script now airing. From Moore meeting Matt Damon while in college at Harvard University and struggling for years to get GOOD WILL HUNTING made, to Shader making such an impression on the AMERICAN PIE producers as writer/director Adam Herz’s assistant that he quickly worked his way up to producer status on the sequels, to the 3 season/3 movie experience that was Project Greenlight, to the painful truth that even after producing enormous worldwide and Academy Award-winning hits it is still no easier to get a movie made in Hollywood, to the reality of today’s new “YouTube Celebrity” generation, to some of the absolute greatest advice given to up and coming filmmakers yet, to some very personal and heartfelt words about working with the late Robin Williams…this is yet another extremely candid and honest episode of THE MOVIE CRYPT fit for inclusion in even the best film school’s program. “How about them apples?” Listen here.

On the 69th episode of THE MOVIE CRYPT podcast, film critic and screenwriter Drew McWeeny (Ain’t It Cool News, HitFix, MASTERS OF HORROR, FEAR ITSELF) joins Adam, Joe, and Arwen to discuss his career in entertainment, from film critic to working screenwriter who has to deal with critics. While so many filmmakers who have come on the podcast have addressed dealing with critics throughout their career, this episode brings you the opportunity to not only hear directly from one of the loudest and most defined voices in film criticism but also from someone who is truly both one of “us” and one of “them.” Listen on iTunes or here on Geek Nation. A new episode of THE MOVIE CRYPT posts every Monday at 10am PST.
