That's the title of a new article featuring an interview conducted by Ian Crabb (a huge SCHERMANN SONG fan out of the UK). It's an email roundtable discussion with actors Joe Schermann, Christina Rose, Mark DiConzo, Debbie Williams, composer Ken Lampl and myself.
This was a blast to do -- and covered so many topics about making the movie that this is just Part 1.
"The film world has been awash with musicals lately. They’re certainly order of the day. But this is unlike one you’ve seen before. Real people, real situations. It’s as close to real life a musical can get. I hate cross-referencing, but imagine ONCE having a one night stand with WARRIOR. And you know what? It’s purely magical.
With a group of such exceptionally talented people there was really very little work for me to do. I just asked the questions and let them talk to each other. I was hoping for a “roundtable” kind of feel to this piece, like everyone was just shooting the shit in the same room."
I can't thank Ian enough. It's people like him keeping our movie alive that makes doing all this crazy filmmaking stuff worth while.
