Meet the Filmmaker: Jesus Medina, “Russian Ghosts”

Q: Why did you become a filmmaker?
JM: I have loved films since I was a child. It was a logical progression to learn and do.

Q: What are we going to see at EFPalooza? Has it screened elsewhere and what are your plans for it?
JM: It has not screened anywhere else, indeed this is the premiere.
No plans for it, merely to add it to a body of work I’m building before I make longer films.

Q: What else are you working on?
JM: Working on a pilot for television based in the Canadian old west.

Q: Tell us one weird thing about you and/or your movies?
JM: I’ve been told I live in my own mind, since I love to create stories by going off in my own tangent.

Q: Where can people go to find out more about you and your work?
JM: My youtube channel, it has much of my commercial and creative work.

Q: Is there anything you’d like to say about EFPalooza or The Emerging Filmmakers Project?
JM: Thank heaven’s you guys exist, it would be more difficult to find a live audience to show film work.
Yes the internet is there, but its not the same.

Russian Ghosts 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.
