Meet the Filmmaker: Greth Ligon, “I AM”

Q: Why did you become a filmmaker?
GL: The filmmaker can’t make it to the screening, so I’ll be representing the film as the composer. I’ve had a lifelong love of cinema and music, so it was natural for me to gravitate towards film as a musician.

Q: What are we going to see at the EFP? Has it screened elsewhere and what are your plans for it?
GL: I AM is a film that was made for the Weekend Warriors Film Festival, which is the Fort Collins version of the 48 Hour Film Project. Aside from that festival, the film was featured by Fun Size Horror, which is a Los Angeles based filmmaker collective. Not sure of future plans for the film, but hopefully it can find an audience.

Q: What else are you working on?
GL: I’m always working on music, and I’m currently waiting on a couple of upcoming films that I’ll be composing for.

Q: Tell us one weird thing about you and/or your movies?
GL: Hopefully the weird thing is the movie itself!

Q: Where can people go to find out more about you and your work?
GL: https://grethligon.bandcamp.com/

Q: Is there anything you’d like to say about The Emerging Filmmakers Project?
GL: I think the EFP is a great event and I alway love being there. Hope it’s around for many years to come!

I AM will screen at The Emerging Filmmakers Project on Thursday, October 19th at The Bug Theatre.
