Reel Nerds Podshow Episode 1: Gay for RDJ

Q: Why did you become a filmmaker?

BH: Coding websites is boring. Getting your friends together and telling stories is much more satisfying.

Q: What are we going to see at the EFP?

BH: I’m screening the first episode of web series the “Reel Nerds Podshow”. It’s an exaggerated account of the lives of three movie podcasters in Denver. Crazy hijinks ensue.

Q: Has it screened elsewhere and what are your plans for it?

BH: It has previously screened at Open Screen Night and Denver Comic-Con. There are six episodes in the first season, and if things go as planned, there will be another six. The internet is over-saturated with movie podcasts. We wanted to set ourselves apart by producing films, not just critiquing them. As we move ahead, we’re including other Denver filmmakers in the project.

Q: What else are you working on?

BH: Right now, I’m editing episode 3/shooting episode 4, and then I’ll be finishing the other 2 episodes and co-producing Eileen Agosta’s feature film “Trauma”. Somewhere in between that I’m trying to animate a cartoon show and draw a graphic novel. Oh yeah, and podcasting every Friday.

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

BH: This one is weird because I’m also in front of the camera this time. But only out of necessity. I guess we could have hired someone to pretend to be me, but that dynamic could have been weird when the other two leads are played by themselves.

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

BH: Please explore my portfolio at nebulusvisions.com. I redesigned it after extensively learning CSS and HTML5 for about a year and then abandoning all that work and just converting to WordPress. And of course check out reelnerdspodcast.com for the podcast stuff.

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

BH: Every month, the EFP gives me an opportunity to engage with my peers and review their work. It’s a valuable asset to the Denver community and I’m always looking forward to the next one.

Reel Nerds Podshow Episode 1: Gay for RDJ will screen September 19th at The Emerging Filmmakers Project.
