Visionary Kerry O'Quinn Part 2

Kerry O'Quinn has worked in nearly every capacity of the entertainment industry during his incredible and unique career – film, tv, conventions, musicals, soundtracks, and of course ... the magazine industry. Kerry created and founded Starlog magazine, along with a slew of other indelible classics like Fangoria. He has influenced and inspired thousands of creatives, all while consistently moving forward on his own projects.

In part 2 of Kurt's interview, Kerry discusses his own historic interview with Star Wars creator George Lucas, producing Star Trek and Star Wars conventions, and how he ended up directing Rod Serling in a commercial. Kerry also reveals what caused him to leave Starlog and Fangoria, and opens up about some very personal challenges. Despite those speed bumps , Kerry continues to write today and pursue his various creative endeavors at a pace few can compare to. Hear all about those projects and more on this incredibly inspiring edition of Bad Headshots.
