Local Boy Double Feature 

Filmmakers Sam Raimi and Josh Becker grew up around the corner from each other in Oakland County. As boyhood chums — along with Scott Spiegel, Bruce Campbell and a few others — they pursued their teenage obsession, honing their film chops on Super 8 cameras into full-on careers. Here Jim McFarlin talks to Josh Becker, who's made his name in TV and film directing, at his West Bloomfield home. In Hollywood, Cole Haddon chats with Spider-Man director Sam Raimi.
