EnderCast Episode #24 – Return to Battle School


July 29th, 2013


Ho, Launchies!

This is our biggest episode yet, with 8 special guests from the cast of Ender’s Game! While we were Comic Con a whole bunch of the guys were in town to do an autograph signing and after a huge group dinner, we were able to pin them down for a quick episode of EnderCast.

Right off the bat, I have to apologize to the guys. I carried my heavy Yeti microphone all the way to San Diego and lugged that thing around the Gaslamp only to lose my earbuds, which made it so I couldn’t listen to our test audio. This made it so that I didn’t catch that the microphone that recorded our audio was my laptop mic, not the Yeti, which means the audio is pretty awful. I blame the chaos and lack of sleep at Comic Con and rest assured I will never let that happen again. It also means we should definitely do this kind of podcast again in October or something. 😉

Our guests included:

  • Aramis Knight (Bean)
  • Jimmy Jax Pinchak (Peter Wiggin)
  • Suraj Partha (Alai)
  • Cameron Gaskins (Pol Slattery)
  • Khylin Rhambo (Dink Meeker)
  • Brandon Soo Hoo (Fly Molo)
  • Conor Carroll (Bernard)
  • Caleb Thaggard (Stilson)

Topics we talked about with the guys:

  • Their thoughts on the Ender’s Game Experience
  • Brief overview of each of their characters
  • On working with Gavin Hood and the type of director he is
  • Violence!

We want to thank all the parents that helped make this possible and for the guys for being such great guests. We hope you had as much fun as we did!

    This has got to be the most awesome EnderCast yet. These guys sound so passionate and they seem to really have been inspired by Gavin Hood and the atmosphere on set. I wish it was 2 hours long.

    What I loved best was how they talked about filming individual scenes and how Gavin’s direction brought out the best acting they were possibly capable of. They really focus on describing facial expressions and stuff so you know that they actually spent a lot of time discussing just that and getting it right. They really seem ambitious in that respect. It’s not all just “wow that effect is gonna look cool”, it’s more “wow, that emotional scene looked really real.”

    I don’t know about you guys, but this ups my confidence in this movie so much.

  3. Great job on the podcast! Enjoyed it very much.
