Council Rock North alum Isaiah (Zack) Solotaroff, now a senior at San Diego State University, has just published his own podcast. The press release is below:
SAN DIEGO, December 7, 2017 — ZACK’S FILM TALKS AT SDSU, the first film podcast to originate out of the School of Theatre, Film, and Television (TFM) at San Diego State University, has just been released and is available to listeners.
ZACK’S FILM TALKS AT SDSU features interviews with prominent screenwriters, directors, cinematographers, and other film professionals. The interviews are conducted by San Diego State University film student Isaiah (Zack) Solotaroff ’18.
The inaugural four episodes are being released simultaneously. They feature interviews with Lady Bird cinematographer Sam Levy, Blade Runner 2049 screenwriter Michael Green, Baltimore Rising producers Nathan Mook and Gabe Dinsmoor, and Bad Words screenwriter Andrew Dodge.
Podcast host Zack Solotaroff says, “I wrote to screenwriters cold to ask if I could interview them about their work, and then I wrote to other professionals. I’ve been surprised how many have replied, how open and helpful they’ve been, and how much I’ve learned from them as I’ve interviewed them.
“Sam Levy was able to tell me what a cinematographer actually does, which for him included making a 110-page shot list for Lady Bird.
“Michael Green described what it was like to be on the set of Blade Runner 2049, which I had gotten a taste of myself when I worked on the Blade Runner activation at Comic-Con this past summer. Michael made so many specific recommendations for aspiring screenwriters that I transcribed the entire interview and posted it, with links to all his suggestions.”
