The Eric Schaeffer Interview

The Director of “If Lucy Fell” and “My Life’s In Turnaround,”  Eric Schaeffer, talks about life as an indie director. How he went from cabbie to indie darling and back again. (Not really back, but it sounded good.) He addresses The fall out he had with his partner and the reunion. Also sex in his films, casting and we even get a cameo from his mom.

His other works include, “Fall,” “After Fall Winter” and the TV shows “Gravity” and “They’re Out of the Business.”


It’s the full interview. That’s for Tony Klootwijk and John Kelmer. Dan McKoy, you can press pause and hear the rest later this week.
