Welcome, welcome, welcome to episode 251 of the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip! With the release of the film ‘Boy Erased’ on the horizon, please welcome actor, film-maker, director, producer and now friend of the podcast JOEL EDGERTON to the Distraction Pieces hotseat!
“…Usually the moment you put the brushes down, sadly, is the point where you have the least amount of objectivity…”
A good, solid and enriching chat right here which defies its slightly shorter runtime, as Pip gets into business from the get-go with this multi-disciplined film maker. As skilled in front of the camera as behind it (with OCD tennis ball - all will be explained), you may well have seen Joel in any number of films. But you may well have also seen the directorial work, which forms much of the talk today as we co-incide with the release of ‘Boy Erased’, the thrilling “pray away the gay” real-life tale in cinemas over the country. Of course, there’s a HUGE amount other than that, including his recent trip to Ethiopia and his thoughts on charity, setting up his company, fallibility of characters, his love of writing and how he wanted to do everything in films, working on his other films including ‘Animal Kingdom’, gratitude on set and all manner of film-making tools which has sharpened over the years. Great one here, people. Engage and enjoy.
