In this very special bonus episode of The Plotaholics Podcast, we sit down with writer/director/actor Erik Kristopher Myers to discuss his film, Butterfly Kisses.
Butterfly Kisses is a high-concept found footage horror film that serves as much as a deconstruction of that genre as it does an example of the genre. Butterfly Kisses tells the story of Gavin Yorke, an aspiring filmmaker who finds a box of tapes containing the raw footage of a student film from years ago. The footage attempts to prove/ disprove the existence of local urban legend, Peeping Tom. Yorke becomes fixated on proving that the contents of the tape are legitimate, and he hires a documentary crew to follow his pursuits. What follows is a joy to watch–especially for fans of the slow-burn, found footage genre.
Other random topics of discussion:
- The slow but undeniable death march of the cinematic experience through a wasteland rendered by a global pandemic.
- What the hell is Disney doing with Star Wars?
- Can anyone save us from a Mandalorian finale that includes a de-aged Mark Hamill?
- How will the death of the cinematic experience change our expectations for big brands like Marvel?
- How is being in a band like being the director of a film?
Sit back, relax, and let The Plotaholics introduce you to the Internet’s angry step-grand-uncle who, as it turns out, is a very pleasant guy.
