We also have an exclusive interview with ‘The Umbrella Academy’s fabulous Emmy-nominated production designer, Mark Worthington.Mark Worthington has previously been nominated seven times for an Emmy and is a four-time Art Directors Guild Awards winner for his work on FX Networks’ 'American Horror Story' and ABC’s 'Ugly Betty'. This year, he adds an eighth Emmy nomination for his spectacular work on Netflix series ‘The Umbrella Academy’.In the interview, we discuss his approach to taking such a stylised graphic novel as 'The Umbrella Academy', and bringing it to screen in live-action. We also talk about his favourite sets and creating the various diverse looks, from the grandeur of Academy itself, to Vanya's apartment, to the craziness of Griddy’s Donuts and The Commission. Along with 'The Umbrella Academy', Mark also worked on Season 1 of 'Star Trek: Discovery'. As he is a big Trek fan himself, I couldn't miss the opportunity to discuss his work on the series, along with working with original showrunner, Bryan Fuller.More recently, Mark worked on the pilot episode of the hugely anticipated upcoming HBO series 'Watchmen', CBS All Access series 'Why Women Kill', and is currently working on Marvel's 'WandaVision' series for Disney+.

His film credits as an art director include 'Legally Blonde 2', 'Austin Powers in Goldmember', 'U.S. Marshals' and 'Tombstone'. He also worked on a little movie I adore called 'Freaked' by Alex Winter (the half of Bill & Ted that isn't Keanu Reeves), so that also comes up in the interview!

This week we have another special edition of the Geektown Radio podcast, as Dave is away at the moment. But we didn't want you to be left without something to listen to so we bring you a great interview with James Parnell, supervising sound editor and re-recording mixer from Monkeyland Audio.James has worked across a range of projects, from tv shows such as 'The Mist', 'Transparent' and 'Scream', to Oscar-winning movies like 'Get Out' and 'Moonlight'. However, it is his work as a supervising sound editor and re-recording mixer on his two most recent projects we wanted to talk to him about. They are Hulu's middle school comedy 'PEN15' and Netflix romcom 'The Perfect Date'.'PEN15' is middle school as it really happened. Maya Erskine and Anna Konkle star in this adult comedy, playing versions of themselves as thirteen-year-old outcasts in the year 2000, surrounded by actual thirteen-year-olds, where the best day of your life can turn into your worst with the stroke of a gel pen. Behind the awkward teenage jokes is a moving coming-of-age story, based on the two creators personal experiences growing up.For James, the responsibility of creating a soundscape that can reflect all aspects of the show, from its use of humour to its exploration of deeper topics like race, marriage, friendship and self-image, was instrumental. James often noted that he can still "hear" his own middle school experience and drew a lot of inspiration from that to create the sounds for this show. It is designed to be humorous and nostalgic, reminding the audiences' of their own formative years. 'The Perfect Date' is a romantic comedy which follows Brooks Rattigan (Noah Centineo) through his last months of high school where, in a bid to be able to afford tuition at Yale University, develops an app which makes him a “stand-in” for girls needing dates. James was responsible for mixing the sonic core of the film, including all the sounds associated with the app to the different environment of multiple school campuses. His role was to take all the raw sonic elements and combine it into a cohesive soundscape that enhances the action to see on screen. For information regarding your data privacy, visit
