Ok, guys, we’re going non-horror this time around! Ian and Eshom Nelms are the brotherly directorial duo behind FATMAN - an edgy and vision of Santa Claus that has St. Nick a grizzled and seasoned Mel Gibson who comes under a vicious attack by a hired hitman played by Walt Goggins. The film is a complete and total miraculous genre concoction of humor, thriller, and holiday cheer that doesn’t take its foot off the pedal for a second.
This conversation is a little different and features essentially a long-form origin story behind the Nelms Brothers career, who very graciously told me their entire story. It is a must-listen. Their story is a fundamental filmmaker’s journey, and they get into the detail of all of the twists, turns, and lessons along their career path that began with a $1,500 feature and ultimately led them to the making of FATMAN, their most personal and ambitious project to date. So many great stories in here, I really think you will enjoy this one.
Please enjoy this very enlightening conversation with Ian and Eshom Nelms.
