Brian Quain (BEFORE YOU SUBMIT) and Jim DeSantis (MOVIE BRAIN ROT) get into Theaters, Festivals/Conventions, Premiere Status', and International Actors. What makes it fair for a festival to lie about their premiere status? What makes a theater different from other theaters? What makes an international actor so good, or bad, because we're reading more than watching them act? Once again, Brian and Jim, tackle, off and on many tangents, issues in the indie, mainstream, and international film world.

FESTIVAL TIP: Avoiding The Mainstream

Going to a film festival can be overwhelming, and in such a short time, how can you manage to see all the films? In most cases, you won't, but this strategy helps you see as many throughout the festival, and by the end of the year.

MOVIE BRAIN ROT'S Jim DeSantis asks the question, Before You Submit's Brian Quain helps answer, but together they bring you an unscripted solution to "Avoiding The Mainstream"

BeforeYouSubmit.com and Movie Brain Rot come together to discuss a term coined in the film industry as "Jumping Genres." When an actor or director break out of the their element, was it a good idea? Did it work? Comedy? Drama? Horror? Even Owen Wilson? Yup!
Join Brian Quain and Jim DeSantis as they pick, but mostly rip apart this ballsy, but most of the time, brave decision Hollywood, and Indie Filmmakers make from time to time.
