Interview with DP David McFarland of The Boy Next Door and some film talk with Anderson Cowan of The After Disaster and The Film Vault



Based in Los Angeles, born and raised in Texas, David began studying photography, art, and music at an early age. He is a graduate of Boston University where he majored in cinematography and anthropology. His previous feature credits include: THE BLACK TULIP, for director Sonia Cole; and THE BAYTOWN OUTLAWS, starring Billy Bob Thornton and Eva Longoria. Aside from working in narrative, David has a strong body of work in commercials, documentaries, and music videos. Regardless of the type of project, his goal as a DP is to create images that not only tell the story, but affect the viewer on a subliminal level.

On this episode we talk about romantic relationships with a big age difference... other than between Mike and Chris. Instead we debate two classic films in Stanley Kubrick’s LOLITA vs. Hal Ashby’s HAROLD AND MAUDE. For the deciding vote, we are very happy to have Anderson Cowan from the awesome and well-respected movie podcast THE FILM VAULT and the comedy podcast THE AFTER DISASTER. But before we decide on Team Humbert or Team Maude, we interview David McFarland, the director of photography for THE BOY NEXT DOOR, the new film that inspired our theme.





Jennifer Lopez leads the cast in THE BOY NEXT DOOR, a psychological thriller that explores a forbidden attraction that goes much too far. Directed by Rob Cohen (The Fast and the Furious) and written by Barbara Curry, the film also stars Ryan Guzman, John Corbett and Kristin Chenoweth.

The Boy Next Door is produced by Jason Blum of Blumhouse Productions, Lopez and Elaine Goldsmith-Thomas of Nuyorican Productions, Benny Medina of The Medina Company and John Jacobs of Smart Entertainment.
