Meet the Filmmaker: Andrew Tennison, “Flushed”

Q: Why did you become a filmmaker?
AT: Film is a language I understood and connected with at an early age, so I figured I’d try my hand at expressing myself with the tools of filmmaking.

Q: What are we going to see at the EFP? Has it screened elsewhere and what are your plans for it?
AT: You’re going to see Flushed, a short student film I shot about two years ago in my first year at CU Denver. It’s been screened at the Denver Film Festival, our school’s Cinefest, and the EFP last year.

Q: What else are you working on?
AT: I’m about to finish shooting my third short film, titled Down, which has more dramatic leanings than my previous shorts. I’m also making music as majordomo (lowercase), and you can find my songs on SoundCloud.

Q: Tell us one weird thing about you and/or your movies?
AT: Flushed was partly inspired by a monologue I wrote for school in which a toilet repairman waxes romantic about the shared humanity that’s expressed in public restrooms.

Q: Where can people go to find out more about you and your work?
AT: You can subscribe to my YouTube channel, which is under my name – Andrew Tennison, and you can follow me on Twitter @majordomo_music.

Q: Is there anything you’d like to say about EFPalooza or The Emerging Filmmakers Project?
AT: Thanks for having me again! The EFP has been very kind to me and I’m happy to be able to show my work at this great festival.

Flushed will screen Friday, February 22nd at 7:00 p.m. at The Bug Theatre as part of the Comedy Shorts block during the 2019 EFPalooza Film Festival.
