Pyragraph LIVE: Alejandro Montoya Marin

 

Filmmaker Alejandro Montoya Marin is in the finishing stages of producing his second feature, Millennium Bugs. It was supposed to screen at SXSW, and Antonio was slated to participate on a panel about independent filmmaking — however a nasty pathogen has thwarted his plans. Alejandro joins Pyragraph LIVE host Peri Pakroo to talk about how COVID-19 cancellations are affecting the production of his film and how he’s adapting his plans for the near future. Audio engineer Justin Engel-Sprague also joins us.
