Michael Robert Anderson is a Staten Island-based actor, writer, director and producer who has made a number of short films with his production company, Purple Cloud Entertainment. On episode 30 of the 4MileCircus, Sean and Nicole talk to Michael about his latest short, the World War II-themed Major Key, which Anderson wrote, directed, produced, and stars in. We discuss how he managed to wear all those hats at the same time, finding his cast (including his co-lead Sabrina Matarazzo, sister of Stranger Things’ Gaten Matarazzo), and why he wanted to make a romance about a US soldier and German musician set in Nazi Germany. We also play an invigorating round of Uncle Sean’s Historical Trivia focused on Julius Caeser (not for any particular reason related to current events. Nope, not at all.)
