The Acquired Taste is a short film written for screen and directed by Chuck Jett, creator of Empty Coffin Studio Films. It was tastefully adapted by the short story of the same title by author and producer Alexander S. Brown. Fans can anticipate a free viewing of the film in 2017. It is currently being shown at conventions throughout the Southern states. Its next appearance will be at Contraflow Convention in New Orleans, LA.
For the final interview from this dark comedy, I would like to welcome actress Sylvia Brown, so that she may elaborate on her part in The Acquired Taste and her life.
- What made you want to be a part of The Acquired Taste?
I wanted to help my son and see what it was like to act in a film.
- What was your experience like on set?
Everyone was nice and polite and had patience with me.
- What other projects have you been a part of?
A couple of school plays.
- Are there any roles that you would turn down? Or are there any roles that would make you uncomfortable?
Any that regard nudity, animal abuse, and child abuse.
- What role is more fun? The victim, the hero, or the villain. Why?
The villain. I’d rather do it to someone else; rather than have it done to me.

My son. When he wrote the short story The Acquired Taste, he had me in mind as the mother.
