Frank and Patrick embark on a new series for Podcasting Them Softly: The Abel Ferrara Auteur series. They start by discussing Ferrara’s feature debut, DRILLER KILLER and both watched the film via Arrow’s release. You can pick up your copy of Arrow’s DRILLER KILLER here
Podcasting Them Softly is honored to add Ken Kelsch, as the latest cinematographer to our series, Cinematographer’s Corner. Ken’s work helped shape my love for film with his frequent partnership with one of my absolute favorite filmmakers, Abel Ferrara. They have worked together on twelve films, starting with their first feature THE DRILLER KILLER, BAD LIEUTENANT, DANGEROUS GAME, THE ADDICTION, THE FUNERAL (which he was nominated for best cinematographer at the Independent Spirit Awards), Abel Ferrara’s segment in SUBWAY STORIES, THE BLACKOUT, R-XMAS, THE NEW ROSE HOTEL, CHELSEA ON THE ROCKS, 4:44 LAST DAY OF EARTH, and finally one of the very best films from last year, WELCOME TO NEW YORK. Ken has also collaborated with Stanley Tucci’s directorial efforts, THE BIG NIGHT and THE IMPOSTORS. Ken has shot the first two seasons of the television show, MEDIUM and friend of Podcasting Them Softly’s latest feature film, Eric Red’s 100 FEET.
