BEHIND THE LENS #264: Featuring Isak Borg, Dena Hysell-Cornejo, Ryan Churchill and Danny Parker-Lopes

Behind The Lens

It's a full house on BEHIND THE LENS this week thanks to four fabulous filmmakers and two wonderful and very different films!First up we're talking the fascinating and frightening ALGORITHM: BLISS with writers/directors ISAK BORG and DENA HYSELL-CORNEJO. A thought-provoking and riveting tale of what happens when ethics, morals, technology, and sanity collide, ALGORITHM: BLISS boasts a mesmerizing performance by Sean Faris. Listen as Borg and Dena go in-depth talking about designing the color palette and visual tonal bandwidth of the film and its reliance on some outstanding production design, casting, and above all, the genesis of development of a story and subject as compelling as this.And then we go from darkness into the light with PUNCHING AND STEALING and writers/directors/actors RYAN CHURCHILL and DANNY PARKER-LOPES. A film of unfettered simplicity, sweetness, and sincerity that makes you laugh, makes you smile, and makes you want more, PUNCHING AND STEALING is a perfect counter to these stressful times. Take a listen as hilarity ensues during our conversation about the fun of this story and how it came to be, a multi-year shooting process that came together via seamless "cut and paste" filmmaking, casting (huge shout-out to a wonderful performance by Mel Rodriguez), music, and so much more. This is a perfect case where the camaraderie and friendship the filmmakers behind the scenes is reflected on the screen.http://behindthelensonline.net http://eliasentertainmentnetwork.com

Punching and Stealing / Film School Radio interview with Co-director Ryan Churchill

KUCI: Film School

Inspired by actual crime. Set in the streets of Las Vegas, away from the strip, PUNCHING AND STEALING is an action comedy vigilante film about Sam Bransby (Ryan Churchill), a young man that becomes jaded and uses violence to get back his dad’s stolen pension money from corporate suits under the direction of his hitman boss (Melvin Rodriguez) in their organization, “Pension Recovery Force”. As fate would have it, as he turns to the dark side (with humor) in his vigilante faction, he meets the love of his life, Jen (Jenny Vilim). As hard as he tries to keep it a secret from her, his vigilante world and love life collide. He attempts to convince her to be his wing-woman but her moral code prohibits her from joining Sam’s underground faction of “beating people until they’re unrecognizable.” A modern day indie caper taking place over 13 years both in plot and film. Co-director, co-producer and lead actor Ryan Churchill stops by to talk about a personal connection to the origin story for his oft-kilter, high-energy comedy and how he pulled together a terrific supporting cast that pushed PUNCHING AND STEALING into a higher trajectory.For news and updates go to: PunchingAndStealingMovie.comFor more on the filmmaker go to: ryanchurchill.comAvailable now on:iTunes: apple.co/2LdAs0AAmazon: tinyurl.com/yd385kfxhttps://youtu.be/9JOgvWY0T3o Social Mediafacebook.com/punchingandstealingfilm twitter.com/rCHURCHiE
