Episode Info:

Director Liam O’Donnell (right) on the set of 2017’s “Beyond Skyline” trying to describe what a dog named Crom looks like.

It’s the second part of our two-part episode with very special guest Liam O’Donnell, movie director, producer and writer who’s most known for his 2017 sci fi action flick, “Beyond Skyline.”

On the previous show, host Christian Matyi (a/k/a “XN”) have us some fascinating insight into he backstory and narrative of O’Donnell, which might have a bit of insight into how we create our own sense of aesthetic in the world. This time, we dig a lot deeper into how a creator like Liam is shaped by the aesthetics of the body whether he’s aware of it or not.

Liam’s connections to bodybuilding and Schwarzenegger get pushed through the lens of story making (see what we did there???). And no doubt a few bells will ring when you hear the name of Liam’s pet.

Also, XN’s giving out nicknames like crazy on the show – why not get one of your own? And we thank some great patrons who became an official patron of the arts for the price of a cup of coffee. All this and more on this episode of The Big Inside.

No actual dogs were named in the making of this film.

Music in today’s episode was all Creative Commons licensed.

You also heard parts of the Original Motion picture Soundtrack to the film Beyond Skyline, by Nathan Whitehead, including the pieces The Catacombs and The Lights.
