Q: Why did you become a filmmaker?
JS: I wouldn’t call myself a filmmaker because I’ve only spent a few weeks of the summer making films. But I certainly enjoy the process of screen writing, filming and editing and understand how much dedication you must have as a filmmaker to develop a film from it’s concept to the stage at which it can be screened. It’s a long and tiring process, but you have to remember to enjoy it as well.
Q: What are we going to see at EFPalooza? Has it screened elsewhere and what are your plans for it?
JS: Bunny Man and other short films were screened at NYU Tisch last summer.
Q: What else are you working on?
JS: I recently scored a short film and have been working on a classical EP which will be available on SoundCloud very soon. I am also writing Japanese inspired music for a game.
Q: Tell us one weird thing about you and/or your movies?
JS: Most of my movies have a somewhat disturbing concept, are abtract and use puppets or masks.
Q: Where can people go to find out more about you and your work?
JS: You can find my other films on my YouTube channel and music on Soundcloud. I will upload everything on my Facebook page soon as well.
Q: Is there anything you’d like to say about EFPalooza or The Emerging Filmmakers Project?
JS: It’s an honour to have my film screened and I am really greatful to the talented cast and crew for their hard work throughout the filming process. Thank you!
Bunny Man will screen Thursday, February 21st at 8:00 p.m. at The Bug Theatre as part of the Emerging Filmmakers Project block during the 2019 EFPalooza Film Festival.
