On Episode 125 of the RETROZEST podcast, Curtis interviews film historian JAMIE BENNING of Filmumentaries.com! As well as creating his own videos and podcasts, Jamie works as a live editor in sports television. For the most part that has meant travelling the world for twenty years visiting dozens of countries, experiencing new cultures and of course enjoying lots of exotic food.

Jamie has produced several excellent “Filmumentaries“, including Inside Jaws, Star Wars Begins, Returning to Jedi, and Raiding the Lost Ark. His podcast, The Filmumentaries Podcast, contains knowledgeable in-depth conversations between Jamie and some of the greatest artists in all the movie making crafts from effects to editing, stunts to storyboards.

Famed Art Director and Production Designer JOE ALVES, whom Curtis interviewed on RetroZest #121, is the focus of an upcoming official documentary created by Jamie and his colleagues entitled Not Your Average Joe. A Kickstarter for this project has been created which will expire on December 20, 2022. Please consider contributing so Joe’s exhaustive career story (including his involvement with films like Forbidden Planet, Sleeping Beauty, Jaws, Jaws 2, Jaws 3-D, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, and Escape From New York) can be told in great detail!

Follow Jamie on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Patreon! There’s also an Instagram specifically for the Joe Alves documentary HERE.
