At this year’s Tribeca Film Festival I had the honor to sit down with a very talented director named Brenden Muldowney and one of my favorite actors Jon Bernthal to talk about their new film Pilgrimage. This was the highlight of my adventure to Tribeca. Not only did I truly enjoy this film, I also got to meet the actor that starred in some of my favorite television series and films such as The Walking Dead, the Netflix Daredevil series, and The Wolf of Wall Street. In this interview we discuss what it took to make an epic story like Pilgrimage come to life and the struggles of Bernthal’s role as a mute. Enjoy the interview and go see the film when it hits theaters this August!
Tyler considers himself to be a true lover of movies and the magic that goes into making them. He spends most of his free time watching and absorbing film and television. From a very young age, film was an escape and an adventure that Tyler could never get enough of. Throughout his high school years he had the honor of working on an award winning independent short film, hosting a film reviewing segment on a public access station, working at two movie theaters, and attending a film festival as a young journalist for his cousin’s local paper. He is the one person that would never turn down going to a theater or staying home and watching a movie and talking about it immediately after. Tyler’s goal in life is to one day be one of the great writers and directors of the entertainment industry like his hero Steven Spielberg.
