The Two Gay Geeks 🏳️🌈 have a chat with Carl Thiel, Director and Taylor Wallace, Star of the short film, “Displaced”. We find out how Carl and Taylor came together to make the film and talk briefly about Carl’s involvement with film making prior to making this film. Have a listen and we hope you enjoy this as much as we did.
About Carl Thiel
Writer/director Carl Thiel is an award-winning film & TV composer/producer who splits time between Austin, TX and Los Angeles. Early in his career, after having made significant strides in the film world, Carl’s other passion, music composition/production, took off and required his undivided attention. He has since scored countless projects with great success, including many of director Robert Rodriguez’s most prominent films. This recent pandemic afforded him the opportunity to rediscover his love for story telling through film. He invested that time developing several scripts, and eventually, directing a new short feature. What started as an exercise in fun with actor Taylor C. Wallace and cinematographer Karl Toft turned out to be a full-throttled passion project. And thus we now have “Displaced.”
About Taylor Wallace
Taylor C. Wallace is an actor and musician who currently resides in Austin, TX. Taylor achieved success in the early 2000’s as a recording artist in Los Angeles making two notable albums with his band Trigger Point that went on to worldwide acclaim. After spending time behind the scenes as the executive producer on the Red Bull documentary “Long Way to the Top”, Taylor decided it was time to step in front of the camera to meld his love of performing with his love of making films.
DISPLACED is an exciting new mind-bending sci-fi short starring Taylor C. Wallace, written and directed by award winning film and TV composer Carl Thiel (Spy Kids 4, Machete Kills, Sin City 2), now exploring his voice as a filmmaker.
