Meet the Filmmaker: Anthony LaRocca, “Swing Shaver”

“Swing Shaver”

Q: Why did you become a filmmaker?

AL: Initially to become famous.  Not sure of my reason anymore.

Q: What are we going to see at the EFP? Has it screened elsewhere and what are your plans for it?

AL: Swing Shaver.  It was an improvised short that we made up along the way.  I initially had the idea of shaving the fake long mustache, but when the mustache is revealed it was trimmed or replaced with a shorter mustache. That was the whole idea behind it.  Everything else was improvised.

Q: What else are you working on?

AL: Currently looking for new projects.

Q: Tell us one weird thing about you and/or your movies?

AL: I wish I had more motivation to make films.

Q: Where can people go to find out more about you and your work?

AL: https://www.youtube.com/user/AComfortableHammock or Dangling Carrot Films on youtube.  Same channel.

Q: Is there anything you’d like to say about The Emerging Filmmakers Project?

AL: I love the concept and wish I made more films to show there.
