Welcome, my INDIEcent, yet faithful, legions of music addicts, to episode number 38 of INDIEcent Exposure. I am you host the mongrel — known in an alternate zip code as Jay Vee.
Before we get into this week’s episode, I want to remind you to subscribe to this podcast in Apple Music, Google Play Music, or via your podcatcher of choice. And if you have an extra 30 seconds, leave us a five star rating and review — that really, really helps new listeners discover us. We work hard to help promote the Indie music scene, and you can too by turning people on to INDIEcent Exposure.
While musicians get the lion’s share of attention on this show, I should remind you all that the podcast was also constructed as a home of Indie creators in performing arts, literature, game development, and most definitely film. And this episode is just the show to remind me how much more we should be doing to support those brave, starving artists.

So, in addition to great new music, we’ll be hearing from Phil Hawkins, director of the original, yet painstakingly faithful, derivative work of film, STAR WARS: ORIGINS. He’s done a mind-bending job, both with good, old-fashioned story telling and with state of the art effects unusual in short, independent films. I wouldn’t blame you if you scrolled down to the embedded trailer straightaway to see what I’m talking about. During this episode, I’ll play clips from my conversation with this up and coming director. Later on, I’ll let you know how to hear our whole discussion. He’s a fascinating personality in the film world today, and I know you’ll be hearing more about his work in the near future.
