The Los Angeles based filmmaker, photographer and writer Nick Ebeling returns to Filmwax to discuss his new novel —his first— called “Earthquake Weather”. Synopsis: Haunted by a childhood near-death experience above Sunset Boulevard, McCabe—almost 22, broke, and carrying a massive student loan debt—navigates his final days at a top-rated art school. With a film festival deadline looming and under mounting pressure from the film’s star—a recently sober and notoriously difficult ’70s cult cinema legend—McCabe struggles to edit his film while avoiding his responsibilities and the schemes of his convict father, who (unbeknownst to McCabe) has negotiated a screenwriting deal on his son’s behalf with a former cellmate, a shady (and possibly violent) music producer.
The filmmaker, photographer and now novelist, Nick Ebeling, makes his second appearance on the podcast. His new semi-autobiographical novel, “Earthquake Weather” is available wherever books are sold.
