Eye On the Prize – Ep 1: Humble Beginnings

3 Submitted by on Thu, 30 November 2017, 09:46

Oscar season is upon us and we have launched a new podcast to keep you up to date on who is on track to take home the gold. This is Eye on the Prize with Justin Zarian, a limited run podcast for cinephiles who want to do fantasy football without that whole sports thing. This week is a bit of a softball to find the show’s footing, but Ian Butcher and J.C. DeLeon are along for the ride as we discuss our background with the Oscars, recent precursor award shows like the Indie Spirit Awards, some of our dream nominations and other fun tidbits. So sit back and enjoy this incredibly nerdy discussion on Hollywood’s most prestigious time of year.

NOTE: There were a few audio issues with this first recording. I (Justin Zarian) have done some extensive editing to iron some of the kinks out, but we hope to have everything resolved for the next episode. I also need to remember not to put the microphone so close to the keyboard…​

Born in the wilds of northern Virginia, in 1992 Chris managed to put all of his survival skills to use and barely escaped with his life to Austin Texas, where ever since he’s dabbled in everything from plumber’s assistant to sandwich maker, from band to bar management. An opportunity to see theatrical release films for free, by becoming a critic on a local public access show called “The Reel Deal”, turned into a full time job when Chris and his friends decided to take it to the internet. They built the site Spill.com, adding multiple podcasts and animated features, to no small amount of success. During this time, a fortuitous friendship sprung up between Chris and young Brian Salisbury, who was also a local film critic, and they merged their forces of will, and their laundry list of ideas for shows, to eventually build this paradise you see before you.
