IE026 - David Ferry Jr. & Ariel Rakes of 8292 Productions

Josh talks with two filmmaker friends from Albuquerque, Davy and Ariel, who operate their own production company through which they produce artful advertisements for commercial clients as well as their own original creative content. They discuss the music video they made together for Josh's band in 2011, running 8292 and their respective roles, how they balance their day jobs as the company grows, the feature film that Davy wrote and directed, general production challenges and collaborating with many different people on a film, a couple of soapbox rants about the slew of current disposable media, remakes and reboots, and finally, an in-depth talk on the work of Tolkien and Lord of the Rings including Davy's passionate defense of Peter Jackson in relation to the The Hobbit trilogy.
