EP 55 | Gwendolyn Yates Whittle, Supervising Sound Editor ('Avatar 2', 'Jurassic World: Dominion') For this masterclass on the Art of Sound in film and TV, we welcome on the show Gwen Yates Whittle, a 2-time Oscar-nominated sound professional whose credits include this summer's JURASSIC WORLD: DOMINION, Steven Spielberg's SAVING PRIVATE RYAN, TOP GUN: MAVERICK and the upcoming AVATAR: THE WAY OF THE WATER

In today’s conversation, the Skywalker Sound member and I break down some of Hollywood’s biggest sound moments. We discuss Gwen's beginning in the industry and why the prospect of sound editing intrigued her in ways that sound mixing never did; her relationship with detail-oriented directors like Steven Spielberg, James Cameron and David Fincher; the process of layering animal sounds to create the dinosaur voices in the JURASSIC WORLD franchise—as well as how the pandemic suddenly impacted Gwen’s work. All of this… and much more!

Gwen's newest movies JURASSIC WORLD: DOMINION and TOP GUN: MAVERICK are now in theaters across the world, with AVATAR: THE WAY OF THE WATER opening in December 2022.

EP 54 | Billy Magnussen, Actor ('No Time to Die', 'Game Night') We had a blast welcoming on the show Billy Magnussen, a Tony-nominated actor whose credits include GAME NIGHT, BLACK MIRROR, Disney’s live-action ALADDIN, and Daniel Craig’s final chapter as Bond, 2021’s NO TIME TO DIE.

In today’s emotionally-honest conversation, we discuss how Billy's early work on a soap opera impacted his process as an actor; what he learned from being directed by Steven Spielberg on the set of BRIDGE OF SPIES; and how, despite his recent success as one of the villains in NO TIME TO DIE, it still took Billy over half-a-decade to experience a career-defining moment that shaped his entire outlook on the business. All of this… and much more!

Billy's new movie THE SURVIVOR opens on HBO on April 27th, and you should also be on the lookout for the second season of MADE FOR LOVE coming out in 2022.

EP 53 | Les Bohem, Screenwriter ('Daylight' 25th Anniversary) Such a treat to welcome as a guest Les Bohem, an Emmy-winning screenwriter whose credits include THE ALAMO, A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET: THE DREAM CHILD, as well as some of the biggest disaster movies of the 1990’s - like DANTE'S PEAK and DAYLIGHT, starring Sylvester Stallone.

Today’s conversation was recorded to mark the 25th anniversary of DAYLIGHT, and in the episode Les explains how DAYLIGHT was inspired by disaster movies of the 1970s like TOWERING INFERNO and EARTHQUAKE. We discuss the ‘spec boom’ of the late 80s / early 90s, and the events that led to Les selling his screenplay for DAYLIGHT; also, Les’ emotional experience picking up a script his late father wrote in 1935 and completing it nearly 60 years later, turning it into the movie TWENTY BUCKS, starring Brendan Fraser and Steve Buscemi. All of this… and much more!

**Before our main conversation, we briefly welcome on the show award-winning actor Colin Fox, who starred in the leading ensemble cast of DAYLIGHT with Stallone, and who shares anecdotes from making the film on the Cinecittà backlots in Rome.**

Today’s conversation is a masterclass in musical theater, as we discuss how a simple songwriting audition turned into Marc and his creative partner Scott Whittman writing the musical HAIRSPRAY; a deep dive into the making of MARY POPPINS RETURNS, and Marc’s emotional relationship to the musical legacy of the original film; the creative process writing songs for film and stage—from the blank page to the final recording.

All of this… and much more!

Plus, Kevin’s own relationship with storytelling beyond cinema. All of this… and much more!
