Fan Film, Fan Films

Homemade Hollywood Hits Airwaves, Podcasts & Press

Clive YoungHomemade Hollywood, my new book about the world of fan films, has been getting some attention lately. Besides getting nominated for the Rondo Awards‘ “Best Book of 2008″ (please vote!), it also landed me a few interviews on the airwaves, in cyberspace and even in print.

Last week, I got to hang at the podcast equivalent of the cool kids table in the school cafeteria—I was a special guest on the MajorSpoilers.Com Podcast, talking about fan films. It was a lot of fun, ’cause those guys are plain funny. Dr. Peter Coogan, Director of the Institute for Comics Studies, was also on chatting about ‘em; I start around 1:17 into the two-hour podcast.

Coming up, I’ll be appearing March 20 at 2PM on the radio talk show NonFiction, which can be heard on WBAI in New York City (99.5 FM) and on the web as a podcast on I’ll be chatting with host and “Media Assassin,” Harry Allen. This comes on the heels of an interview I did with WRHU-FM (Radio Hofstra University) on Long Island for its morning show. I have an MP3 of it, but haven’t gotten it online yet.

For those who prefer reading, I talk about the book, how canon is a security blanket for psycho-fans, why fan films can’t get no respect, and more in an interview found in the latest issue of Star Trek: Phase II eMagazine, which is a free download.
