We are iscifi.tv, we answered the Call.  Will you?

We can dial 911 only in case of an emergency, however in the movie The Call its more than that!  No spoilers here but a great interview with  Academy Award nominated composer John Debney.
imdb-john
John has composed for many movies and television shows including The Passion of the Christ,  The Hot Chick (wait for a smart-ass comment from Jeff on that one),  Liar Liar, IronMan 2 and so much more to list here.  John has never been type-cast to one genre of movie, or musical style yet comes up with the hair raising scores in The Call.  There are a few tracks I would say you best have the lights on when you have time to listen.

RunTime  24:34  You can follow John Here, and also Costa Communications.

Thanks for your support, and thanks for listening as well.     Onward to  iscifi.tv….

Nightbeasts a new horror thriller coming soon , written and directed by Wes Sullivan. The movie dives into the legend of Sasquatch or bigfoot as it is commonly called. Not only does Wes enjoy his job as writer and director, but he researched the legend of Sasquatch and even from the Native American Indians, whom have many stories of the beast the walks, or the creature of the night.

NightBeasts Poster

We have the chance to talk with Wes about his style, his passion and the willingness to be not only the man behind the camera, but the man with pen in hand, to take queues from the cast members and create a story that should not only entertain, inform but also scare the hell out of you at some point. Wes does not go for the juglar vein but you will find out from our interview there are a few surprises in this movie. I avoid spoilers and we know the public will love to see Nightbeasts when the movie is released hopefully in the near future.

From Sylar to Spock , and “24” Zachary Quinto is a man of many talents. His style today reminds me of a young Christopher Reeve as Clark Kent. Zach asked that no photo were taken, but we do have this segment on video as well for later publication. I asked him about his discipline of a stage actor to a big screen and television actor and how it all meshes together.

Zachary Won Gene Kelly Award in High School for his part as General in Pirates of Penzance, and now has quite a following in the science fiction fan base.

Adam Baldwin, has been on the big screen since the age of 17 where he first played Linderman in My Bodyguard.

He has always been someone I wanted to meet, he has played great charaters like Jayne Cobb (“Firefly”), John Casey (“Chuck”), Capt. Wilkins in The Patriot with Mel Gibson. Meeting Adam was great, I was bit nervous and muddled my way through this segment. When adam walked into the room, his 6 foot 4 frame filled the doorway!, he stated with his sarcastic whit he has ‘ damn, is it hot enough in here..’ , we were crammed into a hotel suite in the corner and in the middle of the day it was a bit warm. My co-host Christine, was so jazzed to meet Adam it was like being in high school all over again, she has 100s of questions to ask but when Adam walked in she turned white like a ghost.

Enjoy this segment recorded while at StarFest in Denver Colorado.

[ Segment is available as audio only. ]

As I live and breath, we met Nichelle Nichols (Uhura, Star Trek TOS), she has a career that spans five decades. This wonderful woman sat down with mr hnack of iscifi.tv and was asked about walking on the set of Star Trek: Of Gods and Men, over forty (40) year later from its original air date.

Nichelle is not only a classy lady, she has a great sense of humor. During the opening of our segment, she jokes about how old mr hnack is compared to the number of years in here career.
