Writer, Director, Actor, and Craft Services expert Marshall Cook talks about his new movie Film Fest satirizing the film festival circuit and working with several other unrelated Cooks on the set.
Marshall Cook, works along with Rachael Leigh Cook (She’s All That, Josie and the Pussy Cats) and Matt Cook (Man With A Plan, That’s Not Funny), in the new comedy movie Film Fest, satirizing the film festival scene.
Now we definitely make a lot of jokes about Cooks in the Kitchen but surprisingly not a single one is related to each other. Add in Will Sasso, Sara Rue and Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) fighter turned podcaster and comedian Brendan Shaub and we’ve got a recipe for a good time…yes we recognize that bad puns.
Cook and I even talk about Sasso and my addiction to 90 Days Fiance and out love of reality television.
Film Fest premiered to rave reviews at the Austin Film Festival and is now available on Amazon Prime Video and iTunes.
After submitting their first film “Unknown Unknowns” to every major film festival with no pick up, Logan (Matt Cook) feels defeated until one day, his producer, Alex (Diona Reasonover) succeeds in getting the film into a festival, the Hollywylde Film Festival. No Sundance by any means, and with no real connections, Hollywylde is their only hope at a distribution deal. Skeptic at best, Montgomery Nash (Will Sasso), festival organizer, uses all his charm to turn their attitudes around. But will it be the push they need? FILM FEST is a fun look behind the curtain of what it’s really like for filmmakers and critics alike at the perceived glitzy film fest world. Marshall Cook wrote and directed the film, and even makes an appearance on screen.
