Eye on the Prize – Episode 4: The Big Shortlist

0 Submitted by on Tue, 26 December 2017, 10:24

Justin Zarian and Shakyl Lambert hold down the fort this week while Ian is busy being a responsible adult with a job. The two of them discuss films Justin has actually watched this week (I know, a first), a straggler from the critic group awards and official Academy shortlists for several categories. Much nerd talk and foolishness ensues!

NOTE: We decided as a gag to see how fast Shakyl could read off the entire roster of eligible films for best original score. His Herculean effort is documented between 44:28 and 46:28 (almost exactly two minutes on the dot) if you want to listen to it or not.

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.
