Enter: Manuel Crosby, co-director and co-writer behind the new action comedy ‘First Date’ that premiered at Sundance Film Festival this year. The film description reads: “Conned into buying a shady '65 Chrysler, shy teen Mike's eagerly anticipated first date with the girl next door, Kelsey, implodes as he finds himself targeted by criminals, cops and a crazy cat lady. A night fueled by desire, bullets and burning rubber makes any other first date seem like a walk in the park.” Manuel’s work blends witty dialogue, colorful characters, and of course, compelling action. In this episode, we talk about his relationship with co-director / co-writer Darren Knapp, how he created large action set pieces on an indie budget, and where the inspiration for some of the film’s wackier elements came from. We also breakdown the film’s largest action scene! The film is OUT NOW in select theaters and On Demand! Join us as we chat with Manuel Crosby: hometown hero and master of the first date. *Spoiler Warning* Major plot points and sequences are discussed in depth for The Paper Tigers in the breakdown section of this episode!
