Philly Spotlight: Film Editor Jonathan Grossman / Evil Dead the Musical / Nick's Roast Beef “Bacon and Beer Fest”

Wednesday, September 25, 2013


I met a good guy, Jonathan Grossman at the PaFIA fall mixer (click for post) who offered to videotape and edit for me next time I have another big interview like the one with Lee Daniels (click for post) which would be fabulous! Or if I wanted to start vlogging, which another film person suggested I do; but I kinda like hiding behind written words. Besides, being on camera for the occasional interview, I can handle, but I'd have to lose too much weight to vlog.

Anyway, I liked his reel and appreciate his offer, so I asked him if he wanted to do a little online profile - Filmmaker, Videographer, Editor - Jonny G!

T&T: I think being a professional videographer and editor is an awesome profession, but a) are you an aspiring filmmaker as well? b) what drew you to this end of the industry?

JG: I am an aspiring filmmaker.  I like being able to tell a story through images, whether the video be a narrative, documentary or music video.  I like videography and editing because they represent the ideal combination of art and technology.  I could master and manipulate the technology to tell a good story through whatever content that best complements the story.

T&T: Are you currently working on a film?

JG: I am currently working on a documentary about my late grandfather as a loving father, husband and role model.

T&T: Your favorite director - whose next movie you would LOVE to edit?

JG: I would be excited if I had the opportunity to edit a film of either David O' Russell (Director of Philly's Silver Linings Playbook - click for post) or Martin Scorsese (still #1 director on most "in the business" lists!).

T&T: Favorite Philly Restaurant ?

JG: Whenever I travel from New York to Philadelphia, I like eating at McCormick and Schmick's on Broad and Market.

T&T: Wow! Jonny must come back from NYC with some serious coin, cause McCormick & Schmick's isn't your typical, let's just stop for a bite kinda place.

T&T: Favorite movie so far of 2013?

JG: Blue Jasmine (click for post)(Anyone following T&T knows this is at the top of my list too!)

Blog contributor Candi's Corner is an "Evil Dead" expert, so she's really looking forward to reviewing the Musical version opening at The Prince Music Theater (click for tickets) today (9/25/13).

For those of you who don't know - Sam Raimi’s 1981 cult classic film The Evil Dead has been reincarnated as a stage musical and crazy theatrical experience, with all its gore and rich, take-no-prisoners humor.  Here's the theater trailer:

Will there ever be a cap on movie prices?

Will we one day pay $20 a pop?

Why don't we pay on a scale?

A crap movie like everything Adam Sandler has ever done should cost about $4.50.
Big action movies like"Lord of the Rings", "Iron Man," "Transformers" are worth $10.
Woody Allen movie or something like "Silver Linings Playbook" $6-$7.
A chick flick or light comedy $5.75 and most Indie Films $5.25.

You could even do it by seasons - all summer block busters from May to August - $10
Sept - November 15th $3.50 - $4
Back to $10 for Thanksgiving and Christmas etc...

Or you can do it by A Actors ($9 - $10), B Actors ($6 - $7) TV actors on the big screen ($3.50 - $4)

Surely I'm not the first person to realize this makes sense. Has it been voted on in the Motion Picture Industry and then vetoed? If so, why?
