High and Low (Brow) – Series 3 Episode 3 – Disasters!
And we’re back! This time James and I are coming to you from the Flyway Film Festival, and like last year we have invited some guests to record with us. Joining us for this episode are Jay Cheel (Film Junk & The Documentary Blog), Andrew James (Row Three) and Angela Fabbrini (The Film Confessional Podcast) making this the most star-studded High & Low (Brow) ever!
In this episode we focus on disaster movies, but while doing that we discovered that both of these films are docudramas as well, which makes for a nice discussion on whether or not these movies might actually be a documentary. First up is the classic rendition of the sinking of the Titanic, A Night to Remember. Coupled with that we have the compelling and terrifying The War Game, which depicts what might happen if a nuclear bomb went off in the UK, with shocking detail. After that, make sure to stick around for our blind selection portion of the show, as our guests pick the theme and the films that James and I will be watching on our next episode.
If you have any recommendations for films we could watch for the podcast, or want to suggest a potential theme for us to use, or simply want to tell James how awesome he is, feel free to email us and tell us your ideas. If you enjoy the show make sure to subscribe through iTunes or our RSS feed so you can catch every new episode. Also, please friend James on Facebook. Because it will frighten and confuse him. And while you’re there be sure to join our relatively new Facebook group devoted to Where the Long Tail Ends.
One more thing, if you enjoy the show feel free to donate to it through PayPal in either a single installment or as a recurring donor. We’d love to upgrade some of our equipment and anything you donate will go directly towards us getting some decent mics and perhaps even pop screens that aren’t made out of cotton balls.
As always, thanks for listening!
