In the heat of the 1987 July sun, “The Lost Boys” came to the theater. Dripping with MTV swagger, it melted screens nationwide, while continuing a string of successful, ‘80’s music video influenced films. That same year, I had become a very pop culture aware future Ft. Hayes student. While flawed, as a pop vampire film, it has grown to iconic status with a soundtrack that bleeds. It’s a great ride, somewhat predictable, but cool as hell… or maybe even cooler.
What can I say, Ft. Hayes changed many lives. I have run into so many of my Ft. Hayes kin that I truly believe we are our own force. Jason Kroninger graduated after Ty Barnes and I, but we hold to the same ethic that is, well, Ft. Hayes. I have had many conversations with Jason over the years, but this is the first time on record. He is an amazing 2 and 3 dimensional artist. Providing a very unique, industry insider perspective on this film, Jason reveals his craft, as well as himself. Please sweat the heat of “The Lost Boys” with us.
