She must now face an unknown terror to find the answers she desperately seeks.

-PH: Where abouts in the world do we find you at the moment, sir?

-Isaac: I’m currently living in Austin, Texas

-PH: And how has the pandemic treated you?

-Isaac: It’s been a wild ride but I think people are starting to adapt. I mostly work from home, so I’ve been fortunate.

-PH: Did it affect your work at all—?

-Isaac: Not really. I work mostly from home and when we shoot, we have a very small crew, so I wasn’t effected too much.

-PH: When did you shoot “Radio” – and was it affected it all by the coronavirus situation?

-Isaac: Not really. They vaccines had come out before we shot so everyone was protected. Of course, later on, things picked up again.

-PH: Perfect film to release right now, with so many people still at home. Is it releasing only in North America? Or has it been released elsewhere, too?

-Isaac: It will be released worldwide on several digital platforms.

-PH: Tell me about the process in getting distributed. How did that work? 

-Isaac: I contacted Joe Dain on Facebook. I saw he had horror distribution company and I thought it would be a good fit. I sent him the film and they loved it.

-PH: What do you think the film has that others don’t – something that might spur readers to give it a look?

-Isaac: I think the constant dread and the setting of the decaying Yorktown Hospital is a perfect mix of horror that many people will love.

-PH: The industry has changed even more over the past eighteen months. What’s going to happen, you think? Is the theatrical experience a thing of the past and are streamers where we’ll be getting all our entertainment from going forward?

-Isaac: Streaming is definitely where it’s at right now. We have giant blockbuster films being released straight to streaming platforms now.
