@AssociatedFilms – The Pursuit 7

Over the course of the entire Quarantine, I have been scheming to put together a secret Pursuit movie for Associated Films. It would be a sequel to Pursuit Kids: Hit and Son. I asked my nephews if they would return and they graciously agreed. After months of extensive prep, we finally shot it in one morning and one evening along with long time collaborator Jeff Horn, who shot my Riverman Trailer.

One of the things that you need to make a Pursuit movie is to have a case, a very specific case. The original case belongs to Dylan, and if you want to make a secret Pursuit movie, you will need to find a case without him knowing. Thank god for eBay!

Another key ingredient in a Pursuit film is the inclusion of James “Hit” Soeffner! I let him know what I was doing and told him what I needed to get him in the film. Thanks to his better half, Phenocia, they went out and matched a shot that Jeff and I did during our initial shoot. Their shot is so good and matched our footage perfectly. It’s amazing, considering that they shot it a week later and 400 miles away! It looks so real.

The post credit scene was something I thought up early on. Months before the shooting began, I contacted Lisa and Becky to see if they would be interested in doing this bit. The shooting only took about 15 minutes, but they were willing to come all this way to join me and Stevi to make their Pursuit debut!! Not wanting to leave out Jocelyn in this badass girl gang, she joined us to reprise her roll from Pursuit 4: Orange Crush!

Now that there are multiple cases in the hands of Associated Films’ members, I am willing to hand it off so that the Pursuit will continue!!

Thanks for watching,

– On this episode I am joined by Jay Glatfelter (Geek. Dad. Life. & JayAndJack.com) to discuss The Gunslinger. This episode is a bit of an odd one, as I hit record as soon as the conversation begins. So, you will get a little bit of real life banter between two old grizzled podcasters before we swing into the Star Wars talk. ALSO, we sort of get derailed by talking about George Lucas, the Prequels and Star Wars fans instead of talking about the episode.

For the first time, a live action Star Wars film wasn’t going to be composed by John Williams. Scoring a Star Wars film would already be a daunting task for any composer, but for Academy Award winner Michael Giacchino there was the added pressure of having to complete the score in about 4 weeks. From conception to the final recording!

In Clones, John Williams introduces new themes for Count Dooku and the love theme for Padme & Anakin.

Unfortunately due to time constraints, John Williams did not score the final act of the film and music from The Phantom Menace was spliced into the film. There was never a release of the full soundtrack for Ep. II and John Williams only created two themes. Because of all this, the episode is very, very short. I apologize, but my hands were tied, much like Obi-Wan’s during his interrogation with Count Dooku.

The latest episode of the Dharmalars will drop on 9/22/18 at 8:15am LAX time. Instead of having to wait for it, all of my Patreon supporters will have a chance to listen to the audio from the show, in the raw!! There are no edits, no Jimmy, no phone calls, no music, no nothing!! It’s just the soothing sounds of Me, Ben and Ryan!!

I hope you enjoy this early access and be sure to see what I cut out on LOST’s 14th anniversary, when the edited version shows up in your regular Dharmalars feed!

Thanks again for the support!!

This is one episode that I have been wanting to do for a long time, a long time. On this episode I will be going through highlights from John Williams’ 1977 score to Star Wars.

I will be tracking the familiar themes, and “Han-splaining” which themes belong to which characters or situations. I also get into the original 1977 Imperial Theme’s use in Rogue One and Solo: A Star Wars Story.

I hope you enjoy this episode and be sure to look for Empire, Jedi, Prequel and Disney Era follow up episodes in the future!

Thank you again for your support!

Episode 28 “Con Flu”

A lot of things went down in the last month and I am here to catch you up on all of it! I chat a little bit about my short time in San Diego for SDCC ’18 and get into three of the trailers that dropped that weekend. I talk about Aquaman, Shazam! and Godzilla: King of the Monsters (with a special guest).

I also talk about the new Secret Society Facebook group, July’s charity event and what’s coming up next week!

Thank you again for your support!
