Joe Badon Interview - The Wheel of Heaven

NHE host Scott Murphy chats to writer/director Joe Badon about his upcoming short “The Wheel of Heaven.” An art-house sci-fi horror mystery that Joe describes as “The Rocky Horror Picture Show meets Hour of the Wolf.”

In the interview (the interview begins at 1:57) Joe talks to us about how with his movies he is trying to creating genre-hopping mixtapes of many different films, how he is drawn to surrealist cinema and how he admires films that singularly tread their own path. Plus, we talk about the Kickstarter campaign for “The Wheel of Heaven,” how the project stemmed from Television series he was writing and how his other short “The Blood of the Dinosaurs” is connected to it.

Elsewhere in the interview, Scott & Joe discuss the recent resurgence of 70s influenced surrealist cinema, why he is unlikely to move from his base in New Orleans and how in, some ways, filmmaking has become more democratic. The pair also go off on a bit of a tangent when they start ranking the films of Nicholas Winding Refn (Scott Favourite: Drive, Joe’s Favourite: Bronson).
