DENNIS ANYONE? with Dennis Hensley

Welcome to Dennis Anyone, a podcast about making things up and making things happen. I love to talk to creative types about what they do and how they do it. Hope you enjoy my conversations as much as I do. - Dennis H.

Dennis visits the North Hollywood home of Dudley Beene, the executive producer and one of the stars of "First Period," a hilarious 80's-set comedy about two girls and their quest to become popular. Dudley talks about setting a shoot date for the film before they had a finished script, cast or crew and working backwards. He talks about showing the film in his hometown of Shreveport, Louisiana, shooting the film's martial arts scene and the lessons he learned producing his first feature. Other topics include writing promos for TV shows like Wendy Williams and Tyra, Dudley's worst audition, his favorite bad movie, the song that makes him cry and what he got picked on for as a kid. Dudley and Dennis both recall coming out to their families, their first crushes and the thrill of watching hot studs in 80's workout videos.
