Did You Know?


On the last day of shooting, the team arrived early to the final location at Elysian Park overlooking downtown LA, to learn that the city had double booked the location. A city wide orchestra event was taking place, and there were 10 saxophone players standing in the center of the location. With daylight running out, the Mad Genius crew had to work with the saxophone players, stopping every 15 minutes to let them serenade a new group of concert goers. See more »

"Mad Genius": Sci-Fi Supposition not too Far Off?
1 July 2018 | by jtncsmistadSee all my reviews

"Mad Genius" presents a sci-fi society in which the human mind can be broken into and programmed per the agenda of the hacker. Real life husband and wife Chris Mason and Spencer Locke are Mason and Sawyer, a tortured genius and his mysterious muse, whose redemptive message seems to be a Beatlesque "All You Need Is Love". Scott Mechlowicz as Mason's alter ego, Finn, engages the misguided millennial in nonstop snappy repartee that is hilarious one moment, chilling the next.

This world as written and directed by Royce Gorsuch is a sullen and scary one. And while what Gorsuch explores and proposes may be implausible, is his vision eternally impossible?

Most of us will likely answer "No."

And that is truly frightening.
