The yuletide is in full swing on BEHIND THE LENS with actor/singer/dancer/ songwriter BEN RAUCH! Talk about effervescent and energetic! Most may know Ben best for his appearances on television, stage and screen (the latter as one of the Four Seasons in Clint Eastwood’s “Jersey Boys”), but it’s pretty clear that Ben’s great love is music – and New Jersey – as evidenced with his new Christmas single,  JERSEY CHRISTMAS. You’ll be rockin’ around the Christmas tree when you hear this one!  Talking about everything from working with Clint Eastwood and lessons learned from a master, to the art of songwriting from developing a tune to crafting lyrics to going into the studio and then making a music video, to balancing a multi-faceted career and learning to make choices, Ben’s enthusiasm as he talks about it all is infectious.

Plus, one of the hottest cinematographers out there right now, GREIG FRASER, recently sat down with film critic debbie elias in an exclusive interview to talk about his work on LION, and yes, even some ROGUE ONE. Take a listen to an excerpt of our interview as Greig compares his work on LION and ROGUE ONE. And how about some more musical insight this week courtesy of LION composers, DUSTIN O’HALLORAN and VOELKER BERTELMANN? Golden Globe nominees for their score of LION, listen as Dustin and Voelker talk with me in this exclusive interview discussing their approach to creating a melodic soundscape for LION.
