This week it is an honor to talk to the directors and producer of one of our top films of 2014. Kevin Kolsch and Dennis Widmyer along with producer Travis Stevens join us to give a candid behind-the-scenes look at 2014 STARRY EYES (Now streaming on Netflix!).

The Flick:

Starry Eyes (2014)


Directors: Kevin Kolsch, Dennis Widmyer
Written By: Kevin Kolsch, Dennis Widmyer
Starring: Alex Essoe, Amanda Fuller, Noah Segan

Determined to make it in Hollywood, aspiring actress Sarah Walker (Alexandra Essoe) spends her days working a dead-end job under the watchful eye of her patronizing boss, Carl (Pat Healy), enduring petty friendships with other struggling artists and competing actors (Amanda Fuller, Fabianne Therese, Noah Segan, Shane Coffey and Natalie Castillo) and going on countless casting calls in the hopes of finally catching her big break.

After a series of strange auditions with a mysterious casting duo (Marc Senter & Maria Olsen) from famed production company Astraeus Pictures, Sarah finally lands the leading role in their newest film. The producer (Lou Deszeran) thinks she has a bright future ahead of her, but this coveted opportunity comes with bizarre ramifications that will transform Sarah both mentally and physically into something beautiful and terrifying.

From Travis Stevens, the producer of Cheap Thrills and Jodorowsky’s Dune, Kevin Kölsch & Dennis Widmyer’s Starry Eyes is an occult tale of ambition, possession, and the true price of fame. []

Written by

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, 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.
