Friends and fans of F This Movie! already know Mike Delaney as host of The Splathouse and SOV podcasts, plus How Do You Not Know, the romcom podcast he and Lexy Van Dyke host together on this very site. But did you know Mike is also a filmmaker and actor?
His latest movie, Medias Res, recently dropped a trailer and you should check it out. Here's the summary from IMDb:
Dave and Joe, just evicted from their Oakland apartment, turn to stealing cars and dealing Fluoride to make their financial ends meet. One night they find Summer Hayes, star of a popular 1990's teen soap, in the trunk of a stolen automobile. Shoot-outs, car chases, and overdoses ensue. In the Fluoride heightened world of Medias Res, nothing is what it at first appears to be.
I've seen the movie and it's excellent -- the kind of indie film that makes full use of available resources and makes up what it might lack in budget with a compelling story, interesting ideas, and good filmmaking. Plus, our boy can act!
No official release date for Medias Res has been announced yet, so stay tuned for more details.
