BEHIND THE LENS #178: Featuring Heather McComb and Lee Aronsohn

Behind The Lens

It's a fun-filled episode with special guests HEATHER MCCOMB and LEE ARONSOHN, plus, hear what the Ewan McGregor, Hayley Atwell, and Jim Cummings have to say about CHRISTOPHER ROBIN! Bookending today's show (and adorning the set) it's all about CHRISTOPHER ROBIN and that silly old bear, Winnie the Pooh. Take a listen to our prerecorded excerpts of interviews with EWAN McGREGOR and HAYLEY ATWELL as they talk about the magic of Pooh and friends while voice master JIM CUMMINGS regales us with his own animated stylings talking about the legacy of voicing Winnie the Pooh and Tigger, too! (And dare I mention that Tigger and Pooh both pop up during the show!) And it's a fun time with actress HEATHER McCOMB who's on hand talking about the pretty darn funny PRETTY BAD ACTRESS. Known best for her work in series television dramas, or one-offs in every police procedural there is, with PRETTY BAD ACTRESS Heather gets a chance to show off her comedic chops, which are sizeable, as former child star "Trudie" whose life has become a trainwreck only to be further complicated by being kidnapped. Trust me when I say, hilarity ensues in this little indie gem! Listen as Heather talks not only about her character of Trudie and PRETTY BAD ACTRESS, but Heather's own journey as a child actor from Barnegat, New Jersey to Hollywood and her secret to a vital and lasting career over the decades. Then television titan LEE ARONSOHN joins us during the second half of the show talking about his new film, 40 YEARS IN THE MAKING: THE MAGIC MUSIC MOVIE. Now retired from television and his decades as a producer and writer behind such shows as "The Love Boat", "Murphy Brown", "Two and a Half Men", "Who’s the Boss", "Big Bang Theory" and more, Lee steps into the director's chair helming the documentary 40 YEARS IN THE MAKING: THE MAGIC MUSIC MOVIE. A personal journey for Lee, take a trip down memory lane and discover Magic Music, a soft folk/acoustic Colorado band who were on the cusp of stardom in the early 70's but never quite made it to the big show. Never forgetting his college days watching and listening to Magic Music, Lee endeavors to discover what has happened to them since disbanding in 1976. Taking us along for the ride, the journey is a delight, and personalized thanks to Lee being our guide through the film. Listen as Lee talks about the legwork involved in locating and connecting with band members, several estranged, and then reconnecting them, interviewing, developing a throughline for the story, editing 100 hours of footage, designing some fun illustrated visual stylings within the film and, of course, the music.http://behindthelensonline.net http://eliasentertainmentnetwork.com

40 Years in the Making: The Magic Music Movie / Film School Radio intrview with Director Lee Aronsohn

KUCI: Film School

40 YEARS IN THE MAKING: THE MAGIC MUSIC MOVIE chronicles how one of their greatest fans, acclaimed director (and UC Boulder alumnus) Lee Aronsohn, tracked down the original band members four decades later to tell their story. More importantly, he makes a dream come true for himself, fellow fans, and the band, by bringing them all back to Boulder for a sold-out reunion concert that preserves their legacy for posterity. Magic Music is one of the most fondly remembered bands of the Boulder Revolution of the late 60s and early 70s. Living in a makeshift camp up in the mountains, they would delight local residents and university students with their original songs, acoustic instruments, and light harmonies; their growing popularity brought them to the brink of success more than once. Unfortunately, they never signed a record deal and eventually broke up in 1975. 40 YEARS IN THE MAKING: THE MAGIC MUSIC MOVIE opens in New York August 3, and in Los Angeles August 10, with a national release to follow. Director Lee Aronsohn talks about his endearing and poignant documentary on the music that became a living soundtrack for a community and the band of musicians who became life-long friends.For news and updates go to: magicmusicmovie.com
