Q: Why did you become a filmmaker?
AV: I am a filmmaker because I am always bored and films seemed exciting. I love to do it.
Q: What are we going to see at the EFP? Has it screened elsewhere and what are your plans for it?
AV: This is a film I worked on for a couple years after graduation. It’s not been in any festivals besides this so this is technically its World Screen Premeire! It was on a web show actually. Not a screen yet however.
Q: What else are you working on?
AV: I’m working on an experimental music video, an animated adaptation of an obscurer Arabian Night, and I do oil painting. I want to do something westerny in the brush.
The Bout will screen during The Emerging Filmmakers Project 20th Anniversary Celebration on Thursday, June 16th, 2022 at The Bug Theatre.
