#10: Pitching to a Priest by Kevin Del Principe

Pitching a feature movie to an executive is tough enough, but what if you had to do it to a Catholic Priest in rural Michigan?  I Animal author and filmmaker Kevin Del Principe explains.  

“Kevin is a long-time creative collaborator and friend of mine.  We both know the throes of being in and out of Hollywood at the same time.  It’s like that for a lot of creatives.  The stars in the all the magazines are really just a small minority in the huge pool of those making content.  Kevin is one of those dudes that just works to make things happen for himself, regardless of whether he is “in” or “out”.  One day, he was like, “I’m making my first feature film.”  And then roughly a year later, he’s on a plane to Michigan to shoot his film.  It’s cool for me to hear that he had quite a memorable experience during his shoot of Up On The Glass, one that involved an unexpected Catholic priest.  Kevin goes deeper into the significance of that priest in this episode.  We also joke about our old web series that forecasted Putin before the 2016 election happened.  We used to do a lot of Putin jokes, but now we’re scared to do more.”

#6: The Bolivian Ghost Motel by David Ngo

Our host David Ngo steps into the valley of the wolves with special guest Kevin Del Principe and discusses the first and last time he will stay in a Bolivian hotel 13,000 feet above sea level.

“I had done a few interviews prior to being interviewed myself by special guest Kevin Del Principe, so I kind of knew how the conservation would run to a degree.  That said, Kevin asked some really great questions and gave wonderful insight into an experience I was trying to make sense of.  Also, it’s one thing to know why you don’t tell a certain story publicly, but to actually then say it out loud definitely puts you in a vulnerable space.  I didn’t want to tell this story because it freaks me out, but I felt like I owed it to my guests because they were so open with me.  I will probably never listen to my own episode though.  It gives me goosebumps.”
