#DFNYFocus On: Michael Zakin – Producer

(Mozart in the Jungle on Amazon, A Very Murray Christmas on Netflix and JOSHY, a Lionsgate Summer 2016 release)

Q: Which film do you love that might surprise people?

MZ:  A Face in the Crowd, and not surprising that I love it, but because it seems so under-appreciated as the timeless classic firing-on-all-cylinders that it is.

Q: If you could pair up any two actors/actresses, living or dead, which two would it be & what kind of film?

MZ:  Peter Sellers and Sacha Baron Cohen, and I’d follow their lead re: what kind of film.

Q: Which film has had the biggest impact on you personally, and why?

MZ:  Porky’s Revenge taught me to never give up dreaming.

Q: If you could have one prop from any film what would it be?

MZ:  Porky’s speedboat.

Q: Is there any subject matter which you would not make a film about?

MZ:  Never say never.
