“Calling PBR street gang, this is Almighty. What’s with the t-shirt?”

Yes, I’m a fan of the film, “Apocalypse Now.”  But, that is not why I had a t-shirt of the director, Francis Ford Coppola, holding a gun to his head on the set of the film.  I wore the shirt on episode three as a testament to a filmmaker and film production that were pushed to the limits of their ability, both physically and mentally.  It’s also a very cool t-shirt.  Francis’s wife, Eleanor, produced a great doc on the making of the film, “Hearts of Darkness: A Filmmakers Apocalypse.”  I highly recommend you watch this.   “Apocalypse Now” is not an independent film but there are many lessons any filmmaker can take away from such an incredible artistic endeavor.

Meanwhile, back on planet earth, TvFILM is all new Sundays at 11pm!
