The Two Gay Geeks chat with filmmakers, Sarah Jayne Portelli and Ivan Malekin of Nexus Production Group. They have a rather unique approach to making films that you may find fascinating, we certainly did. With each interview we learn something new and develop new relationships with those that we interview. Have a listen and enjoy.
