CMF’s own Vikas got to chat with Writer/Director/Actor and now Show Runner Adam Green about his new show HOLLISTON which premiered on April 3rd on FEARnet. He had some great things to say about his show, cow poop, life after college, his relationship with Oderus Urungus, illegal downloading, and advice for young filmmakers. Take a listen and let us know if you’ve seen the show and what you thought!

*Heads up - It’s an audio only interview, and because he had so much great stuff to say we didn’t cut it short. It’s worth the length though! (that’s what she said.)
