I stop by NYC’s STILL LIFE hats to film the owner Frenel’s story and he is busy with customers as usual. But he says you 2 should meet “you’re both into the same thing”. Dusty Wright is the former editor-in-chief of Creem and Prince’s New Power Generation magazines as well as a writer of films, fiction, and music. He’s also a singer/songwriter who has released 3 solo CDs, and a member of the folk-rock quartet GIANTfingers. And before all of this he was an agent at the William Morris Agency! And while I film conversations with small businesses, entrepreneurs & everyday people, Dusty has been doing similar interviews but with celebrites as the founder and host of The Culture Catch. The Culture Catch is a smart pop culture website with hundreds of webcast celebrity interviews and thousands of written reviews in all areas of the arts. Dusty Wright’s in-depth interviews with A-list artists discussing music, film, television, theater, comedy, and art will have you craving for more. Leave the high gloss spin doctors at home while the artists wax poetic and passionately about their craft, not their next project. Guests include: mega-screenwriter/director David Keopp, actor/musician Kevin Bacon, actress/comedienne Susie Essman (Larry David’s Curb Your Enthusiasm), theater actor/writer Ruben Santiago-Hudson (Lackawanna Blues), and many others
MY SMALL STORY
Over the past 15 years I have traveled, filmed and and acquired a library of over 6,000 hours. From the recording studio in NYC to South African Safari’s, I have filmed my conversations and watched my library grow. On April 26, 2010, I launched www.MySmallStroy.com in NYC as a way to share insight. My Small Story contextualizes life through a collection of unscripted filmed conversations with small businesses, entrepreneurs, artists and everyday people filmed, edited & shared weekly by LaRon Batchelor – a videographer/ethnographer with 15 years experience filming conversations in 4 continents.
