BFAM: Brother From Another Mother. It's a crazy little term somebody came up with to describe a person that you have SO much in common with, you MUST be related. THIS guy is one of those guys.
I first “met” my pal Warren Drummond via this podcast in early 2010. Well, I should clarify that. While he and I have become the best of buddies over the last two years, I've still never met the guy in person (due time). Warren was a listener to the show, wrote us a very kind note, and has been a friend and supporter of SiDEBAR ever since. The three of us owe him a debt of gratitude for being the hook-up on several terrific interviews we conducted.
Over time and many emails and phone calls, I've come to find out a few things about my boy, Warren — so, here goes. He's a former New Yorker, a long time comic book fan, a dedicated family man, and he’s worked the last 12 years as an L.A. based storyboard artist. And if you take a look below, you'll see just how strong his kung fu is (that joke will make more sense after you hear our talk). Warren has boarded over 60 feature films with some of the biggest names in Hollywood, and yet — he remains a humble, decent person. See, Hollywood doesn't corrupt everybody (ha).
Our conversation with Mr. Drummond covers quite a bit as far as his background, his opinions on freelancing in the film business, his complete love of martial arts, and his true calling, writing.
