  1. Great interview! Big thanks to Mario from Deutschland and of course are very own Jasonsfury. This is the best Friday site around, but also, hope you all don’t forget as well. ;)

    But yeah, cool interview. The movies he worked on aren’t my favorite, but even still, I’d give anything to be in the 35mm motion picture business. Sounds like a very cool guy.

  2. Why did my post get deleted? It may have been off-topic but it was a valid point.

  3. Thanks Jason for posting about it here and thanks for the kind words! I`m already doing a follow up interview that will be posted this week. Let me know if there is anything special of interest to you guys and I will see if I can add some of the quetions. Sounds good?


  4. Mario,
    If you haven’t thought about this as a question yet, I would like to know more about how he created the rig that was attached to Travis for Trent’s death. It looked like a pretty cool device that was featured in the DVD. Also, I wonder if he has any other behind the scene pictures that were taken of him working on the props that he is allowed to share?
