Ben Jackendoff - Masters of the Sun
This week’s guest is Ben Jackendoff, Co-Writer with Will.I.Am for Marvel's MASTERS OF THE SUN. He also founded the largest comic book club in LA in 2008 called COMIC BOOK SUNDAY!.
He’s been professionally working in the entertainment business for the past 15+ years starting in documentaries in NYC with such projects as "sex, lies, and superheroes" (a doc on comic books that featured everyone from Stan Lee to Frank Miller to Jimmy Palmiotti) and moving into film, comic books, and TV in LA working with creatives ranging from Larry Cohen (Phonebooth) to Lena Headey (300, Game of Thrones).
Ryan and Ben discuss:
- Growing up in Jersey
- Moving to New York to chase a dream and eventually moving to LA
- His interests in music and filmmaking
- His comic book club “Comic Book Sunday”
- His big project with will.i.am called Masters of the Sun
I love hearing about what goes behind the scenes with his various projects and Ben has this uncanny ability to see what he wants in an exact way and pull the necessary members together to make that happen.
