12 Jerry Thompson, Popovich and the Voice of The Fabled American West


In Jerry and Mike Thompson’s latest feature film, Popovich and the Voice of the Fabled American West, Popovich, played by real-life circus star Gregory Popovich, is an ex-circus legend struggling as a street performer in the wild west streets of Las Vegas. When his junkyard home full of stray animals gets into trouble with the law, he and his animal buddies must use all of their circus tricks to save their home. Writer, director, editor and director of photography Jerry Thompson — who shares the writing, directing and editing credits for Popovich with his brother, Mike Thompson — tells us how the movie came to be, how the Thompson brothers got their start making films, and the advantages of filmmaking outside of Hollywood.
