While passionately chasing my dreams I ran into Mona who was kind enough to leave the rope swing long enough to answer a few question for me… and if you were wondering I did catch the ice cream truck. Who says dreams don’t come true.
MM: Why did you become a filmmaker?
MM: I thought I was being brave and following my dream — now I’m wondering what I was thinking.
MM: What are we going to see at the EFP? Has it screened elsewhere and what are your plans for it?
MM: This is a short film I did for fun. Well, I really did it to submit to the traveling New Belgian Short Film Fest – but it didn’t get in.
MM: What else are you working on?
MM: I’ve been working on web videos for small businesses but am also working on a short documentary and educational short films for elementary age children on social issues.
MM: Tell us one weird thing about you and/or your movies?
MM:The weird thing is that I cannot come up with the weird thing unless you count that I seem to have a persistent desire to work on film projects.
MM: Where can people go to find out more about you and your work?
MM: Is there anything you’d like to say about The Emerging Filmmakers Project?
MM: Nice to be here.
MM: Thank you Mona for chatting with me… and for making me look like I was talking to myself.
“Rite of Spring” will screen at the May 15th Emerging Filmmakers Project!
