Mystic & Severe
Thursday September 19th, 2019 with Michael O'Keefe
A Nicolas Cage level intense way to begin TIFF 2019 Coverage

Mike has returned from TIFF 2019! After over 30 movies, 20 sit down interviews and a red carpet there certainly is a lot to talk about. First up to bat is the 'Colour out of Space,' gang which were recorded off the Midnight Madness red carpet and are divided into three sections: 1. The sons of Cage aka the young actors who play them in the movie who go by the names Julian Hillard & Brendan Meyer 2. The Dark Energy Managers aka Producer Josh Waller & Director Richard Stanley 3. NICOLAS CAGE. Then we move on to the sit down interviews which include first time director David Raboy who talks about his excellent debut feature 'The Giant,' we then hear 'Ballers,' actor London Brown talk about acting and his main passion stand up. Short film director of 'It's Nothing,' Anna Macguire as well as the writer of the short Julia Lederer discuss compulsion and the art of short filmmaking. 'Insecure,' actor Sarunas Jackson talks all about his relationship with Spike Lee and how dedicated one must be in order to find success in the industry, Director of Marketing for Mongrel Media Danish Vahidy about Mongrel's agenda at TIFF. An epic Wakaliwood interview occurs this time with both Producer Alan Hoffmanis & Nabwana I.G.G. together as well as with Mystic & Severe newbie VJ Emmy! The final interview is with the Abba Makama the director of the hypnotic 'The Lost Okoroshi.' Some tracks break things up, there'll be some reviews but mostly it's all about the interviews!
