Podcast: Exclusive Interview with Director Josh Overbay – Extra Film
This week on the InSession Film Podcast: Extra Film segment, we interview director Josh Overbay about his new film, As It Is In Heaven, a small indie film that is actually one of the best religious-themed movies we’ve had this year (and there’s been a lot so far). Josh talks about how the idea came about, why the story is important and how they were able to make the film on such a small budget.
Overbay is not only a film director but he’s also a film professor who will be working at Louisiana State University and building the program there. He’s an incredibly talented guy and his vision for his films are highly inspired. As It Is In Heaven is solid and if you get a chance to see it, I’d highly recommend it.
Anyway, we hope you have fun listening to this week’s Extra Film segment. Check out the show and let us know what you think in the comment section below. Hope you enjoy and thanks for listening!
