American Side
, [00:00:00] this is beyond the big screen podcast with your host, Steve Guerra. Today. I'm very happy to be joined by Jenna Ricker and Greg stewer of the 2016 film, the American side, Jenna wrecker as the director and co-writer with Greg's store, who has also the star as the lead. Charlie the movie set in Buffalo, New York.
You could say Buffalo is even more than just a setting. It's a supporting character. Uh, Jenna and Greg, why don't you tell us a little bit more about yourselves and maybe, uh, What connected you to make this film in Buffalo? Right. It's like it as being so, uh, so complimentary to each other, you kick it off.
Um, okay. So I grew up in Southern California and I grew up loving [00:01:00] films and, um, really thought I might be an actress for a long time and came out to New York city to study acting at NYU.

Then I'll toss it over you, Greg, and you can tell how we started working here. Yeah. Well, the, you know, when we first met, I think you were, you were right in the midst of rewriting in the midst of shooting.
Your first film was that. Oh yeah. Right. When we first met, we met in the theater and I was just going to pre-production for myself. Yeah. I was, I remember, uh, being very, very impressed with that. That Jenna was. Actually making a film. There's so many people out there who want to make films who flirt with making films, but she was making it and she was taking it upon herself to make it because she was, you know, producing it.
