This past August, Larry McMurtry, author of Lonesome Dave, The Last Picture Show and Brokeback Mountain, sold over 300,000 antiquarian books from his legendary Booked Up bookshop at auction over two days. This film is the story of those Books.  Filmmakers Mathew Provost and Sara Ossana of Studio Seven7 Films have launched a Kickstarter Campaign to help them complete a documentary about McMurtry, the auction, and the future of the American book trade.

Actor Kevin Chapman, Detective Lionel Fusco on the CBS hit-show Person of Interest, skypes into Film Courage to share his story of how acting found him, why he bypassed New York for Los Angeles, what separates those who make a living acting from those who don’t, how he spends that dead zone time when he is not acting, and he tells about his life on the set of POI.

Filmmaker Tony Zierra and Actor Chad Lindberg of the documentary My Big Break join us on Film Courage to share with us their true and remarkable Hollywood story, that of three actor roommates who rose to stardom in the early 2000’s (Chad Lindberg, Brad Rowe, & Wes Bentley). We learn whether it was fate or not that brought them together, whether one can sustain a Hollywood career without a ‘big break,’ and why Hollywood doesn’t want you to see this film.


Kevin Gant, World Guitar Poet and star of Jay Duplass’ documentary KEVIN joins us in the Film Courage studio to talk about his dream of making and sharing music and why he put the guitar down for 12 years, what led to his current rebirth, how the music game has changed and the impact Jay Duplass has had on him.
