In December 2018, V&T director Jerry White Jr. recorded some interviews for a podcast called “CLiKS” as a collaboration between Creative Loafing Atlanta and KitSplit. Four shows were recorded before Jerry moved to LA, but only one of the podcasts aired: until now!
CLiKS Episode Two features filmmaker/production designer/puppeteer (and 2018 Vidlings & Tapeheads Film Festival juror) Raymond Carr. Listen as Jerry and Raymond discuss filmmaking in Atlanta, passion projects like Raymond’s upcoming Joyriders film (currently in preproduction and crowdfunding at Seed & Spark), and much more!

Minsker does a deep dive on VTFF—exploring the faces and places, makers and shakers, of our second-year celebration of unconventional stories in film, music, and art!
2017 gave us plenty of good with a healthy dose of bad. Perhaps the best new thing 2017 brought us was the Vidlings & Tapeheads Film Festival in Hamtramck. Anyone looking for a place that supports the arts and culture, with a heavy dose of blue collar work ethic, and buzzing with positive energy, need look no further than Hamtramck, Michigan. Vidlings & Tapeheads Film Festival fits perfectly within those ethos of Hamtramck. VTFF makes its return for year two later this month, and it has filmmakers, cinephiles, audiophiles and art enthusiasts eager for what’s sure to be an enjoyable weekend of festivities. We’ll chat with Vidlings & Tapeheads founder and director, Jerry White Jr. and give you the lowdown on this year’s lineup. Remember, as always, support #MiFilmFestivals! This interview originally appeared in the MEDC’s July 2018 Newsletter.
