An Interview with Milly Sanders about The Removals

For The Removals, we were so fortunate with our casting choices. Not only were they brilliant in their respective roles, but they came to work on our essentially no-budget production with open minds, a creative "can-do" mentality, and a willingness to go with the flow. Following is an interview with the terrifically talented Milly Sanders about the production.

"The Removals comes from a long line of intentionally ambiguous, paranoid thrillers."

Over the past two days, Nicholas Rombes has appeared in conversations at Vol. 1 Brooklyn and 3:AM Magazine with Mark de Silva, author of Square Wave, where he's discussed everything from dubbing over old VHS tapes scored from UHaul outlets, Mussolini's Blackshirts, revolution, and "art as a weapon."

Interview with J.D. Wilkes

Great news! We have signed a new novel called The Vine That Ate the South—by debut novelist J.D. Wilkes, the charismatic frontman of Th' Legendary Shack Shackers, and accomplished harmonica and banjo player, who Jello Biafra calls “the last great Rock and Roll frontman”—a mesmerizing fantasia that incorporates vampire cults, exorcisms, and the Bell Witch of Tennessee, as two friends embark on a surreal, Homeric voyage that strikes at the very heart of American mythology.
