Ep. 23 – Guest: Russ Emanuel

The TOTC crew talks with independent film director Russ Emanuel. We met Russ at Phoenix FanFest where he and his team debuted the tie-in comic book to their award winning Scifi thriller film Occupants.  Russ was a blast to talk to, we found out he goes just as deep as we do into movies, TV shows, and fan theories. We discussed the importance of movie soundtracks, our favorite films, conventions, Occupants, and his upcoming production titled The Assassin’s Apprentice.

You can find Russ at occupantsthemovie.com, on Instagram @russem31facebook.com/occupantsthemovie, and follow his upcoming film The Assassin’s Apprentice.

You can also find him at the Kansas International Film Festival going on right now!
