We love having people stopping by the hacienda for a chat about movies. Especially when it is about their movies. Always exciting to meet and talk to a real filmmaker about what it takes to make a feature film. David McCracken has made two. Daylight, a found footage horror film was made while he was a film student at USC. His second film, Bullitt County, was released in 2018 and won best feature at the Hoboken Film Festival. It was also screened at many other festivals and received accolades. It’s available to stream right now on all your favorite streaming services. It is certainly worth checking out.
It’s great to meet someone who is easy to talk to, friendly, fun and can keep up with rapier wits of the Cinemondo-ites. I kid. A genuinely nice guy who is extremely talented. Not only does he write, direct and act, he has assembled with his producer (and good friend) Josh Reidford, a wonderful group of collaborators to help bring the film in. That’s just a hard thing to do. But they’ve done it with Bullitt County, a film they shot in their home town of Evansville Indiana with help from friends and family. What a gratifying experience that must have been. David talks about all of that and what inspired him to become a filmmaker.
Anyone out there who wants to tell stories and make movies - you should listen. David did it, and he continues to do it. His next project is in the works and we can’t wait. I think it’s going to be pretty damned cool. Thanks David for taking time out to come out and chat with us. We’d love to do it again anytime!!!
