Clark Gregg Talks His Return to The Marvel Universe

Clark Gregg

High on the velvety steps of the Seattle International Film Festival's opening night gala, I had a chance to speak with Clark Gregg, the one actor who has been in as many Marvel films as Robert Downey Jr. From the first inklings of the Marvel Movie Universe in Iron Man, Gregg has played Agent Coulson, an uncharacteristically likeable but no-nonsense agent of S.H.I.E.L.D; the super-secret, super-hero organization led by Samuel L. Jackson's Nick Fury. S.H.I.E.L.D has had a hand in all of the Marvel movies leading up to The Avengers as they are the organization responsible for assembling the troop of heroes together and Gregg, alongside Jackson, have been the face of The Avengers years before the movie's release.

Talking with Tom Berninger of "Mistaken For Strangers"


Hot off the success of his documentary, I had a chance to sit down with Tom Berninger of Mistaken For Strangers. Brother to The National frontman, Matt Berninger, and emerging filmmaker, Tom set out with the band for their year-long world tour with all intentions of making a rock doc. He came away with something else entirely. Boldly turning the camera on himself, Tom's final product was an intimate take on familial challenges and finding himself rather than a portrait of the much loved indie rock sensation.

Talking with Stephen Silha and Eric Slade - the Documentary Filmmakers Behind "Big Joy: The Adventures of James Broughton"

Stephen Sihla and Eric Slade’s Big Joy: The Adventures of James Broughton is a close exploration of a man who embodied the tenants of free expression. Living under the mantra of ‘Follow Your Weird,’ Broughton was both a poet and a filmmaker, an avante garde champion of artist expression who refused to play by the rules of his time. As a contemporary of and grandfather to the beatnik generation, Broughton made artist waves within a population striving to break away from the norm and has left a lasting impact for poets, filmmakers and countless people. Sihla and Slade’s film charters the course of Broughton as a man and an artist as he bravely pioneers that frontier of queer entertainment.
