ALIEN DAY 2017: Watch our ALIENS 30th Ann interview with Michael Biehn & Jennifer Blanc-Biehn

So this is a little embarrassing. Last year during San Diego Comic-Con, we sat down with our friends Michael Biehn and Jennifer Blanc-Biehn as part of the ALIENS 30th Anniversary celebration going on during the convention. I’ve interviewed these two before, rather spectacularly in fact, and I’ve always appreciated how honest and candid they are when discussing their various projects. It’s also nice to see a husband and wife filmmaker team that truly play well off each other and are mutually supportive and nurturing. Anyway, why is this interview just now being posted? Well sometimes technical issues come up, files get corrupted, and in some rare cases you lose the interview entirely. But I wasn’t going to let that happen. I was determined to post this no matter how long it took. I consulted with several video experts and tech guys in an effort to salvage this interaction and finally get it online for the world to see. And lo and behold, just in time for ALIEN DAY 2017, we figured it out. I want to extend a big thank you to Andy Chang and Rachel Parker for making this possible, and a BIG apology to Michael and Jennifer for the delay. Hopefully they’ll see it as a “better late than never” scenario. Hope you enjoy this fun little chat.

I want to encourage everyone to check out their films and visit their production company website¬†and YouTube channel. I’ve also posted some trailers below for a few of their films. If you’ve never seen THE VICTIM, it’s a definite treat. One thing they’ve done that I really respect is give women a chance to shine both in front of and behind the camera. You’ll notice a bulk of their productions feature female directors, which is admirable in a day and age where Hollywood still isn’t showing proper diversity. I’m a Blanc-Biehn fan for life.
