Meet Jim Sea. A prolific Denver writer and filmmaker, Jim will be at the January EFP with a teaser from his award-winning feature script Occupy. Eileen was fortunate enough to have a chance to speak with him to get the scoop on Occupy and other projects he has in the works.
EA: Why did you become a filmmaker?
JS: To act in my own movies. But once I started writing them I found the creative process of making them very rewarding. The process of pulling together all the pieces to create a world up there on the screen.
EA: What are we going to see at the EFP? Has it screened elsewhere and what are your plans for it?
JS: Occupy is a teaser from a feature screenplay, one of the thriller scenes. It has screened in two other places, The Pikes Peak Film Forum and at DIY studios. Plans are to make the feature film. Currently gaining commitments from cast and crew.
EA: What else are you working on?
JS: I have two ghost feature scripts in rewrite and a life story in rough draft.
EA: Tell us one weird thing about you and/or your movies?
JS: I make movies because I want my daughters to see young women effectively dealing with challenging situations and making strong choices in life.
EA: Where can people go to find out more about you and your work?
EA: Is there anything you’d like to say about The Emerging Filmmakers Project?
JS: I think EFP is a great place for local filmmakers to screen their work and meet other filmmakers. Many thanks and kudos to the crew who put it together every month.
Occupy will screen January 16th at The Emerging Filmmakers Project.
