Wylie Writes’ One-On-One with Bob Saget

To perform stand-up comedy takes skill, and it’s a developmental process specific to each comedian until they find their own individual presence.  For some comics, however, the experimental process becomes their career – always finding ways to deliver jokes and stories while keeping listeners on their toes.  Bob Saget certainly falls into this category.  Being professionally experimental is what makes Saget’s comedy work.

Wylie Writes’ One-On-One with Elaine Constantine

Elaine Constantine’s Northern Soul has been praised as an authentic reenactment of the music scene in 1970’s England – Lancashire to be exact.  The film also stands as a strong example of a filmmaker accomplishing their goals because they have been able to put so much of their heart and life experience into their project.
