Directors of Cinema: Episode 14- Andrew Stanton

Directors of Cinema podcast 2

Greetings and welcome to yet another episode of Directors of Cinema. If you’re unfamiliar with our podcast, this is a show dedicated to the discussion of selected works of prominent filmmakers. Each week, host Matt Goudreau and guest talk about a particular director chosen by the co-host.

On this episode, Matt welcomes first time guest Camille Espiritu to the show. Before they dive into the films of director Andrew Stanton, Camille was ecstatic to detail her recent experience touring the Pixar studio in California. As you would expect, she had a lot to say.  Speaking of Pixar, the majority of Stanton’s films have been released under the banner of Pixar. Compared to prior episodes, this one is a bit more laid back because Stanton only has a few films to his directorial name. That doesn’t stop Matt and Camille from discussing Finding Dory, Finding Nemo, Wall-E, A Bug’s Life, and John Carter.

As always, feel free to download the show for later enjoyment or listen to it directly on Shoutengine.

Directors of Cinema – Episode 14- Andrew Stanton

Matt is a 21 year old film buff and recent graduate from The University of Rhode Island. Growing up in a small town in the smallest state, Matt began developing a taste in film and general geekdom at a young age. After years of watching various DC and Marvel animated television shows as a boy, Matt has become quite the afficinado in the realm of comic books. Towards the end of middle school, Matt began delving into the world of film by watching anything he could get his hands on. Nowadays, his tastes range from classic film noir and the mindbending works of David Cronenberg to the latest trends on the independent scene. Don't worry; he's still one for the latest film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe or DC animated adventure. Comics aren't the only source of literature Matt enjoys. He can sometimes be spotted reading the works of Stephen King or even the plays of William Shakespeare. As an aspiring film critic and screenwriter, Matt is always looking for inspiration and new ideas.
