Every week, Kristopher Pollard from Milwaukee Film and Radio Milwaukee’s Dori Zori talk about movies — because that’s what you do when you’re Cinebuds.

When you put everything into a project that you believe in, you never really stop trying to get it in front of as many people as possible. Martin Kaszubowski was already familiar with that grind, having produced several films over the past decade or so. More recently, he got to see it from the director’s perspective — one he shares with us on this episode of Cinebuds.

Kaszubowski sat in the big chair for the new film Earlybird and, in the process, put himself in position to see the whole project through from start to finish. That’s because he also wrote the movie, which follows a theater owner who turns to a … let’s say unconventional approach to production in an effort to save his business.

Cinephiles in the Milwaukee area may have already gotten their eyeballs on Earlybird last April as part of last year’s Milwaukee Film Festival. But — proof of the endless hustle that comes with this sort of thing — the movie gets its digital release this week, and Kaszubowski jumped in the studio with Dori and Kpolly to talk about this project he has thrown himself into so completely.

You can enjoy their conversation using the player on this page, check out the trailer for Earlybird below, and — if you like what you hear and see — find it on Amazon Prime and Apple TV now.
