This week we’re joined by filmmakers Jake Horowitz and Andy Lewis to discuss their new film Cup of Cheer, as well as the Rankin/Bass animated classic Frosty The Snowman!
Jake and Andy are the co-writers (and Jake the director) of the new holiday comedy Cup of Cheer! If you’re a fan of the cozy, familiar Christmas movies that flood cable TV this time of year, or even if you’re not, then Cup of Cheer will be right up your alley. It’s a big, goofy parody of the genre in the tradition of Airplane!, only with loads more Christmas trees and snow and awkward small-town romance.
On this episode we sit down with Jake and Andy to discuss the inspiration for their film, as well as some of their childhood favorites. This leads into a discussion of Frosty The Snowman and its place in the greater Rankin/Bass Cinematic Universe!
