Retrospective Video Interview: John Carpenter
If my heart was writing this introduction it would probably begin with my "Oh my God," and then start an endless trail of exclamation points. However, that would be pretty taxing on you (although completely accurate of my joy). I was able to interview the legendary John Carpenter, a man who created so many films and characters that I (and probably you as well) love. I would did a quick run through of his long resume but I'm sure you know his work by heart.
And now I'm going to set this up in three sentences or I will probably ramble forever. I interviewed a director whose films I have enjoyed and admired for many years. It was amazing-- just like him. Here is the interview.
HUGE thank you to Loyd Cryer and Texas Frightmare Weekend for making this interview possible.
Editor's Note: The lighting in this video gets pretty bad. We had an Iris issue with the camera but didn't want to stop the interview to fix (you don't wanna interrupt the Carpenter when he's speaking). If at any point the lighting gets irritable, just close your eyes and listen.
