Kalen Artinian


Now for something completely different, this is All Kinds of Philler‘s first interview! Earl brings in Kalen Artinian, comedy/horror enthusiast and director of Hellvetica and the upcoming Ruby’s Secret. They talk about how he started, making his short films, working in the Canadian industry, and the festival circuit. And along the way, they discuss Spring Breakers, Hitchcock, high school, Redline, and whether plaster casts really smell after they’re taken off.
