Q: Why did you become a filmmaker?
TJ: It takes a certain kind of person to be in any creative industry. We’re just crazy enough to choose the making of motion pictures.
Q: What are we going to see at the EFP? Has it screened elsewhere and what are your plans for it?
TJ: Slappy HR will be making its long coming debut at EFP Feb 2017. In 2015, 7andCO Productions was given the AJA Cion for review, and shot several things over the course of two weeks with the camera. Slappy HR was one of them. The script was written in a matter a days, and we were off. We have no current plans for Slappy
Q: What else are you working on?
TJ: We are currently working on several projects right now, including finishing up Post Production on a feature length documentary about the expansion of Lacrosse to the West and into more urban settings. We are also working on a short film that will be directed by local Sheryl Glubok; this film, Lily ‘N’ Rose will be shot this summer with more info coming soon.
Q: Tell us one weird thing about you and/or your movies?
TJ: Most of our films have a hidden old headshot of 7andCO’s lead producer, Thomas Jaeger
Q: Where can people go to find out more about you and your work?
Q: Is there anything you’d like to say about The Emerging Filmmakers Project?
TJ: We at 7andCO are all glad to have an outlet for independent films on a monthly basis. I believe the independent trend/art/industry will grow more and more, and I’m willing to bet that EFP will be a staple for a long time to come.
