UNFRIENDED is the first horror film made with Millennials in mind. It’s actually very clever & a fun popcorn-horror flick. It clocks in at a mere 82-minutes, but still packs a cyber-punch. The Story: On the 1-year anniversary for Laura Barns’ suicide, something’s not right in a Skype chatroom. Hacker? Virus? Trojan Horse? Ghost. It’s all there. I sat down with Heather Sossaman, the actress who plays the character of Laura Barns. In the film, Laura gets cyber-bullied & takes here own life. It all takes place online & it’s pretty freaky. You’ll learn things like: What effect does a horror film have on a working actress? What’s the worst thing to ever POP out during an audition?

What do Phil Collins, LL Cool J, Genesis, The Beastie Boys, New Order, Rick Rubin, Pharrell Williams, Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis all have in common? Besides being huge influences on the music of 80 & the 90’s, there’s one thing that binds them all together: The 808 Drum Machine. The biggest hits came from the smallest box. 808 is a documentary packed with huge musical stars like Phil Collins, producer Rick Rubin, Pharrell Williams and The Beastie Boys. It’s the origin story of were these amazing hits. I spoke with producer Alex Noyer from SXSW.
