The beginning of this month marked the return of the Days of the Dead convention to the west coast and the guys from Nowhere jumped into the event head first. The three day event was packed to the rafters with excitement and, over the next few days, Nowhere California will launch our traditional tales from the con. The first stop is detention, a bloody session of detention.
In the past, our adventures to these conventions have revealed some of the best in the world of independent cinema and the 2016 Los Angeles Days of the Dead continued this roll, as Phil and I entered the world of “Getting Schooled…”
“Getting Schooled..” is a comedy/horror throwback to the world of the 1980s and slasher movies. As it was described to us, “The Breakfast Club” meets A LOT of blood. I could go into more details, but the trailer will speak volumes…
“Getting Schooled..” was a part of the screening schedule for the convention and the guys from Nowhere jumped at the opportunity to view this film, so please keep watching this site for our full review of “Getting Schooled..”
In the meantime and most importantly, Nowhere California had the great pleasure to talk with members of the “Getting Schooled..” team.
First, we talked with Courtney Blake Sandifer and director, Chuck Norfolk. In the opening conversation, Courtney reveals the development of the film’s look and other aspects of the production process. Then, Chuck discusses his role as co-writer/director and the evolution of “Getting Schooled..” from script to the screen.
In this second installment, we talk with Morgan Tyler and Mayra Leal. The guys first talk with Morgan Tyler (who plays the high school princess Hillary) after that conversation, Phil and I talk with Mayra Leal (who plays the outcast Julie).
These conversations delve into Morgan and Mayra’s personal developments of their characters and their views of the production process.
This was a great moment for the entire Nowhere California team and we would like to thank everybody from “Getting Schooled..” for letting us into your creative world.
