UNFINISHED BUSINESS INTERVIEW – Dan Poole

Our special interview edition of Unfinished Business goes underground into the world of fan films by interviewing Baltimore-based filmmaker and stuntman Dan Poole! Dan is best known for his homemade Spider-Man film, THE GREEN GOBLIN’S LAST STAND, a project intended to be showcase to get on board the unproduced James Cameron film adaptation during the 1990s. But it ultimately gained traction in Comic Cons across the world. We talk to Dan about his experience making the film, the response from fans over the years, his efforts on his indie feature THE PHOTON EFFECT, and his thoughts on the Spider-Man movies in general. Thank you DP for taking the time to speak to you!

*Please note due to Zoom-related technical difficulties, we lost Jeff early on during the interview.
