In this episode, Fuse film critic Tim Jackson and Deanna Costa dissect Andrew Silver’s filmography. They, along with Silver, also discuss his upcoming projects and his distinctive philosophy of directing, which reflects his years of experience in higher education and the business world. Tim’s perspective as a director made this a particularly lively conversation.
Three clips are featured; the first is an interview between actors from Silver’s 2018 film, Second Wind. The second is a trailer for his movie trilogy: Radio Cape Cod, Surprise Engagement, and Second Wind. Finally, we are treated to a short preview of Silver’s recent documentary, Profiles of Early Childhood Educators. Silver’s complete filmography can be found here.
Aaron Halford sent in his new single, “Before it Starts.” You can find his music on Spotify, Apple Music, and YouTube.
