The coronavirus pandemic has turned filmmakers’ worlds upside down. The feature film “The Climb” experienced several release delays that stretched through most of last year. It’s something others in the industry are grappling with as well.
KPCC’s John Horn spoke with Director Michael Covino and Producer Kyle Marvin, who co-wrote the screenplay and starred in the film. In fact, John spoke with them twice. First, in September a year ago, when “The Climb” was playing at film festivals and hadn’t yet come out in theaters, and then again this March, when its release was postponed due to the pandemic. John joins Larry to explain what’s happened since, then we hear his interview with the filmmakers as they bike up Glendora Mountain Road.
