There are few things in the artistic world that frustrate me as much as movies that aren’t quite movies. I’m sure you know the type. It’s like you’ve got your hands on a script, a director, a handful of actors, a production company and all the hardware you need, but never let any of the actors rehearse with each other. You then send the finished product to an editor who’s never read the script and doesn’t know what the movie is about before they hand it in turn to marketing, who try to down-play the entire “Everybody kills themselves in the end of the movie” angle…

Movieing On

Movieing On was a project that we've wanted to do for a long time, and the pieces all fell together in March of 2012, when we began planning the first episode. Featuring some of the CSICON crew's most amazing people, we watch a movie from 1999 or earlier and discuss it.

If you want to get in touch with the people behind the episode or talk to others who like it, feel free to join the CSICONauts chat room. Alternatively, you can find some of this episode's hosts and/or guests on Twitter: Breki Tomasson, Linnea Kleiner and Nancy Frye.
