TCMFF Picks & Plans with TCM Producer Yacov Freedman
What are you watching?
All TCM Classic Film Festival ask this of their fellow fans at the festival. We also wonder what the folks who work at TCM themselves want to watch. Classic Couple asked TCM Producer Yacov Freedman what he plans to watch from home during TCMFF 2021. Here is a Yacov’s top pick.
I’m a huge behind-the-scenes wonk so I always love the presentations from Craig Barron and Ben Burtt, and I can’t wait to see what they have in store with Jet Jockeys in Love: The Making of Chain Lightning, which will be playing on HBO Max. Without giving anything away, I hear that they used the “virtual” format in a fun and exciting way that’ll be a real kick to watch.
Plus they’re doing a Q&A in Club TCM on Saturday, and those are always fascinating. Craig and Ben are intensely knowledgeable but they’re also hugely entertaining, and I can’t wait to see what they’ve got cooked up! Sight and Sound Makers: A Chat with Ben Burtt & Craig Barron. Club TCM Zoom Event on Saturday, May 8 at 6:00 pm ET; advance registration required.
