Meet the Filmmaker: Andrew Ellsworth, “Entropy”


12095010_1058744844166206_3898473601619574047_oQ: Why did you become a filmmaker?
AE: When I was nine years old I saw Ridley Scott’s “Alien.” Despite the fact I was too young to understand the themes or events that were taking place within the film, it still evoked a very visceral reaction out of me and I found myself enthralled in the universe that Scott had created. It was fascinating that this world that drew such a real emotion out of me was completely fictional and created by a team of people with Scott at the helm. I knew at that moment that I needed to do for others what he had done for me.
Q: What are we going to see at the EFP? Has it screened elsewhere and what are your plans for it?
AE: “Entropy” is Kate Lowell (fellow young filmmaker) and my first venture into collaborating with one another on a film. It happened to coincide with Kate’s first production class at the Colorado Film School so it seemed like a prime opportunity to partner up on her film as a producer/director duo.
Q: What else are you working on?
AE: I’m currently slated to direct a film written by Thomas May within the next couple of months as well as producing three other short films in the Colorado area.
Q: Tell us one weird thing about you and/or your movies?
AE: Everyone asks me about my New York accent. I’ve lived in Colorado my whole life. I don’t hear it.
Q: Where can people go to find out more about you and your work?
AE: Follow me on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/andrew.ellsworth.98?fref=ts
Q: Is there anything you’d like to say about The Emerging Filmmakers Project?
AE: It’s an honor to be featured and I look forward to meeting everyone present. You guys have something truly unique and inspiring going on at the EFP. It’s such a great environment to spend an evening at.
“Entropy” will be screening at the January 21st Emerging Filmmaker’s Project.
