Georgetown author hosts podcast, releases new movie | New

Nic Brown is the author of five books, a podcast host, and an award-winning filmmaker whose new movie, “The Fall of Usher,” made its streaming debut on Tuesday, July 12.

Brown worked in Scott County for 22 years, as a quality and special projects manager for Toyota Tsusho America.

“I’ve always wanted to write my own stories,” Brown said. “However, I didn’t think I had the right skills, so I started a movie review website to practice writing.”

His film review site led to pitches to a number of independent filmmakers as he finished work on his debut novel.

“Around the same time, I started helping some on independent shoots. I was working on a web series and that led me to meet my current directing partners at ThoughtFly studios in Louisville, and that led to my first feature,” Brown said.

“At the same time as that was happening, I was asked to co-host a podcast about ‘B’ movies. So a lot of things came together at the same time and yet over the course of a decade.

This podcast, “The B-Movie Cast,” covers “sci-fi, horror, and other genre movies like grindhouse movies or kung fu movies and we have a lot of fun doing it,” said Brown said. The podcast will soon record its 500th episode. “Not many podcasts get to 500, so that’s a bit of a feather in our cap, I think,” Brown said.

Brown’s feature debut, “Loss Prevention,” which he wrote and produced, won a Drive-In Academy Award or “Hubbie” (so named because the award is etched into a Chevy hubcap) from film critic drive-in Joe Bob Briggs at the 2021 Joe Bob Jamboree at the Mahoning Drive-In Theater in Lehighton, PA.

“It was a real honor and it’s hard to describe how exciting it was for me to win this award from Joe Bob Briggs,” Brown said. “His earlier work on The Movie Channel and later on TNT…was part of my developing a love of film and so to be honored by him was particularly exciting.”

Brown’s second feature, “Wretch,” had its world premiere at the Kentucky Theater in Lexington in 2019, and his third feature, “The Fall of Usher,” which Brown produced, is now streaming on iTunes and Amazon. . Brown describes the film as “a smash-up of a number of Edgar Allan Poe stories and has a good mix of psychological horror and drama”. The film won the Audience Award at the 2021 HP Lovecraft Film Festival in Portland, OR.
