In writing for S&A, I often find the “story” behind making films can be just as intriguing as the film itself. That’s the case with first-time director Alex Stapleton and her documentary Corman’s World: Exploits Of A Hollywood Rebel, an homage of sorts to the king of low budget filmmaking Roger Corman.
Not long ago, I had a chance to speak with her about the flick and the rollercoaster ride she endured in putting it together. If you’ll listen to the audio below…you’ll learn of her surprising impressions of Mr. Corman, how she almost lost the project to a “known” veteran director, the way she financed the film and her inspiring takeway.
The film opens today (Dec. 16) in select theaters.
