TV Show: "The Cannolis"
Genres: Comedy Role: Joey Cannoli Status: Unknown Plot: The Cannolis is a show about the clash between the Old World and the New, between Italians and Italian-Americans, and between actual family and “The Family”. It’s a show about the friction between generations and the force of pop culture. But most of all, it’s a show about a regular guy and the cast of crazies who surround him—his irresponsible kids, his Real Housewife of a wife, his crude and lewd mother, his half-brother the sociopath and the FBI agents who are always just a wire tap away.

Horror Channel UK is bringing the biggest, boldest and bloodiest festival to your screens with it’s 7 favorites from FrightFest’s past during August including Mitchel’s creature feature “The Sand”. To celebrate the UK TV premiere tomorrow at 9 pm, they sat down with Mitchel to chat about the Movie.
Fri 19 Aug @ 9 pm – THE SAND (2015) UK TV Premiere
MM: I am a fan of horror films; I’d say my favourite would have to be classics like Scream and Nightmare On Elm Street.
HC: How did you become involved with The Sand?
MM: I was introduced to The Sand and really liked the script, so I read for the producer and director and we clicked.
HC: What did you think of the script when you first read it?
MM: When I first read the script my reaction was… Huh… Well… Okay…
HC: How would you describe your character, Mitch?
MM: Mitch is cool I guess, he’s kinda not the greatest guy which made it easier ripping him in half and swallowed him hole at the end of the movie. But he’s a rambunctious cat… I like that
HC: How do you prepare when acting in such a wild film and how tough is it acting in a movie so reliant on CGI?
MM: It’s really tough however it is our job to act/react create characters and sometimes get eaten by your occasional sand monster.
HC: What�s your favourite moment?
MM: My favourite moment is bonding with the cast.
HC: The Sand will get its UK TV premiere on the Horror Channel this month; are you nervous what fans of the genre will think of it?
MM: I am not nervous, I think you will either like it, love it, or take it for what it is. It’s not a film you should waste time hating on.
HC: You�ve been acting for some time but this is your first horror movie, would you like to do more? (I�d personally categorise Monster House as family horror as it�s such a wonderful love letter to classic movies, what about you?)
MM: I agree, I always felt Monster House was a family horror film as well, however this is a lot more gritty and dirty. So on that note let’s see what the fans think!
HC: If you did come into contact with a sand dwelling, flesh-eating beast, what�s the first thing you�d do?
MM: Probably die…
HC: So, what are you working on at the moment?
MM: I can’t say what I’m working on at the moment.
CHARACTERz just came out this week and the Interviews keep coming in! Check out the latest scoop from Starry Magazine (Q&A with Mitchel) and Animation Scoop (Interview with Jon, Director and Writer of Characterz) below.
What made you want to be a part of the movie Characterz?
A) It just sounded fun! We worked in an amusement park and they were very open to my ideas. I was able to hire my little brother [Marc] and work in Florida for a month. I think that’s what kind of sold me.
Q) Was there anything you added to the role that wasn’t scripted for you?
A) Tucker is kind of this creative, artsy kid. All he really wants to do is developamusement parks and rides. That’s what he is really into. The character was pretty well rounded from the get-go. There wasn’t really much I had to add. Who doesn’t have a passion for rides and rollercoasters? Not just the rollercoaster, but the showmanship of the ride takes you away from everything for that minute or minute and a half. It’s really a summer fun flick and it was a lot of fun to shoot with a lot of fun people. I think some of the best movies are like that, especially when you are working with good people, friends and family that you have known forever. A lot of good moments come out of that with our relationship and our chemistry.
Q) What was it like having to wear the costume all day?
A) It was SO hot! It was like deathly hot. Florida is one of the hottest places in the US and during the summer…it was just so hot.
Q) What were some of your favorite moments from filming?
A) I think just being able to go through the amusement park and ride on rides in our off time. I spent time with the cast. Everyone was really nice and every night we would go into our hotel rooms and learn our script with each other. That’s always good to buildchemistry with our cast and build relationships. I liked getting one-on-one time with them to see how they feel about the scene and what their thoughts are. It’s not just about what I’m thinking because everybody has great ideas. It was just spending time with everybody.
Q) Why do you think it is about Characterz that will make people want to check it out?
A) I really don’t know. Why does anybody watch anything? If it looks good to them, they are bored or have nothing else to do…In all honesty, I saw the film and I liked it. It’s fun and there are a lot of genuine moments in it. I think it is all about the characters and the people involved in the movie that makes people want to see a movie and for a good story. If you’re into family fun flicks, amusement parks, love interests and goofy friendships then you can definitely find that in Characterz.
Director Jon Binkowski on his animation-inspired indie-feature “CharacterZ”
“Our animator was Jeffrey James, who had worked at Disney and Bluth,” […] “He helped develop the look of the characters. I told him we needed animation that looked like a kid did it, and he helped me out, along with Huhu Studios in New Zealand and Shanghai.”
“Everything was digital coming back and forth. We would shoot the plates, send those to them and they would animate over the plates. They would send those back in a rough form so we would see how it would layer on to the plates. If I had to, I would doodle on something to show what I was looking for. Jeffrey and [producer] David Townsend were very instrumental. There was only one that didn’t make it into the final cut, just because of editing, no other reason.
“We wanted the animation to that would make the kid’s talent show through, but a little amateurish because he didn’t have the tools yet. We wanted him to be a young Lasseter. He has animation chops and wants to get into the theme park industry. He wants to go to CalArts.
“They went with 12 frames a second, but it didn’t match the 24 frames when we moved the camera around, so they had to switch it to compensate. They were very accommodating in that regard, because I told them one thing, and then said “It’s not matching!” and they worked it out great.”
Surprisingly, animation did not command the lion’s share of the film’s modest budget. “The biggest, most expensive part of the budget, by far, was feeding everyone,” Jon laughs. “You get all these people to do all these things for free–or not for very much, but we did provide food. We had a lot of extras. And man, that adds up really fast. We always underestimated our food budget. We negotiated at the restaurants at Old Town so each catered on a different day. They made money, we got everyone fed, and it worked out well.”

GET A SNEAK PEEK AT MITCHEL MUSSO’S EPIC SQUAD FROM HIS NEW MOVIE, ‘CHARACTERZ’ – M Magazine
Yeah, I do a lot of physical comedy, ever since I was little. It’s always been throwing myself off the beach railing in front of Rico’s shack [in Hannah Montana] to getting in that chicken costume inHatching Pete, flying across the gymnasium, you know, ‘Mitchel, throw yourself over here and it’ll be funny!’ So, I’m used to it, of course I love it,
No, I never thought I’d be back in costume like that, no, I did not,” Mitchel told M. “The movie presented itself to me and it just sounded awesome and who doesn’t want to be in Florida and Orlando and it was just a really, really awesome director, and like I said, I was able to hire my family, my little brother. So that just made it all worth even more work, getting in the kangaroo suit. So I said, ‘Yeah, I’ll do it!'”

“The cool thing [was] that I got to shoot it with my little brother. It was awesome being able to work with him because I haven’t worked with Marc [since] we did Secondhand Lions together, [and] he worked with me on Monster House. I think that that was the last time,” Mitchel explains. “Also, I have a good friend, Miles [D], who I’ve known for a very long time who was also a part of the film.”
“I had a lot of reign with who was the cast of characters and really a lot of direction with my character, as well as Jon Binkowski, who is the director, trying to go back and forth with him on how to make this as funny and entertaining as possible for you guys, for the fans,” Mitchel adds about the creative process. “I think that that’s what was so cool about this film. The last two films that I shot, one was a horror film, which was great, it was called The Sand. So, one was a very dramatic film, and that was called Sins of Our Youth. So to go from those two movies to just, like, improvised comedy where we’re at theme parks the whole time with my little brother and friend and this awesome cast and this awesome crew.”
“Everybody, when they think of me, they think of Oliver Oken from Hannah Montana or they think of Brady from Pair of Kings. You know, they think, you know, your best friend that’s the boy who’s kind of kooky and quirky, and that’s really how I was brought up for so many years,” Mitchel shares. “So it’s nice to go back and kind of touch on those roots and joke around and have fun.”
“Oh, my God! That thing was like a thousand degrees!” Mitchel laughs. “You know, [we filmed in] Florida. It’s already boiling hot, it’s humid, it’s summer, I’m in this 50-pound kangaroo suit. I am just like dying, you know. So that alone is probably pretty funny. It was hot, it was tough to walk around in, it’s got a giant tail, the feet are huge, you’re tripping over yourself, you’re trying to run and you’re trying to work with this costume and it’s a lot. But I’m sure it’s hilarious. To me, it’s funny, so I’m sure it’s hilarious. It’s just ridiculous.”
Mitchel Musso Experiences the Rough Side of Theme Park Life in ‘CHARACTERz’ – J-14 Magazine
“I’ve been working since I was a baby, so it is nice that I have so much experience. I’m like a seasoned actor, I’ve been around and I’ve done a lot of different things from Steven Spielberg movies to Disney Channel hit shows to indies. I’ve been able to do really everything and I’m so thankful for that,” he told us.

German Translation: Die College Abschluss-Party steht an. Was gibt es Schöneres, als am Strand zu feiern. Kaylee (Brooke Butler), Mitch (Mitchel Musso), Jonah (Dean Geyer) und ein paar andere Freunde brechen mit ihren Autos auf und wollen es so richtig krachen lassen. Doch als sie am nächsten Morgen mehr oder weniger fit aufwachen, geht irgendwas nicht mit rechten Dingen zu. Nach und nach realisieren sie, dass sie mit einer unvorstellbaren Bedrohung konfrontiert sind. Es scheint, als würde der Sandstrand leben und blutrünstig alles verschlingen, was ihn berührt. Als bald danach das erste Blut fließt, geht es für die Mit-Zwanziger um nichts anderes, als das nackte Überleben.
