We see The Sci-Fi Christian, in all its iterations, as being about the collision between faith and nerdom. We believe that good genre fiction is about more than just entertainment. We seek to engage with the themes and philosophies behind our favorite stories, wrestling with the big ideas within speculative fiction. We’re unabashedly nerdy and unabashedly Christian. Even if your faith background differs from ours, we look forward to interacting with you at The Sci-Fi Christian!

Today on the show we have writer, director, author, actor, and all-around indie film pioneer Mark Polish. Mark and his brother Michael Polish (listen to his interview here) are well known for their films, Twin Falls Idaho, Jackpot (the world's first digital feature film, yes they beat George Lucas by a few months), The Astronaut Farmer starring Billy Bob Thornton and one of my favorite indie films ever For Lovers Only (Available on IFHTV). His most recent film Headlock (aka Against the Clock, more on that later in the interview) is out in VOD. Also, do yourself a favor and read his amazing filmmaking book The Declaration of Independent Filmmaking which is easily one of my favorite filmmaking books of all time. Mark and I discuss his career, the challenges of maintaining your creative vision and working within and out of the Hollywood system. We also discuss how Sundance has radically changed over the years and some of his horror stories when shooting and distributing his films. Enjoy my epic conversation with Mark Polish.
