We asked our filmmakers some questions about them and their work. For further questions, join us at the designated post-screening Q+A!
1. What is your connection to the South?
3. How did you start making films?
4. Did anything interesting or funny happen on set during the shooting?
The most interesting shoot was 100% on location at His House Thrift Store in Columbia. The store is basically this massive playground filled with so much interesting stuff. We filmed while the store was open to customers, and just had to find nooks where there wasn’t too much foot traffic. I remember once we were literally ready to press record, the actors were all ready to go, and this little old man going about a mile an hour walked through our shot with his cart to get to a lamp he was eyeing up. He was oblivious of our entire set up — lights, dolly rig and all. He was so funny! It was also at His House that I locked my keys in my car while we were packing up our equipment and the incredibly nice fellows who worked at the store had to help me break into my car with a wire coat hanger. They really saved the day.
5. What do you look forward to the most during Indie Grits?
I’m looking forward to being reunited with my crew! Apart from Joaquin, our production manager, who is back in Peru. We’ll just have to go and visit his wonderful country to see him I guess, oh well.
6. Why should someone see your film?
If you’ve ever grown up and missed being a kid, you might like it.
