Meet the Filmmaker: Bradley Haag, “The Legend of Drunken Brewmaster”

Q: Why did you become a filmmaker?

BH: It’s been so long since I started, I’m not even sure anymore. I know it has something to do with getting my friends together and turning our absurd fantasies into something that exists beyond our own imaginations.

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

BH: You’re going to see an alcohol-induced fever dream / Karate Kid rip-off called “The Legend of Drunken Brewmaster” that was produced for the 2020 Four Points Film Project, which is like the Denver 48 but you get an additional 24 hours to complete and competes against the whole world. The required elements were that it be a Martial Arts film that included the character of Andy Wright, School Psychologist, use a sugar packet as a prop, and someone should speak the line “It’s crazy how that always happens.”. It screened at the 2021 Colorado Short Circuit Film Festival and won “Best Comedy Short”.

Q: What else are you working on?

BH: Other than getting that JCVDDV BD/DVD done, I’m trying to get a feature film made. I’ve made so many shorts. So. Many. Shorts. I’d like to have something at least 90 minutes long in my portfolio before I reach the grave.

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

BH: One weird thing? How do I narrow it down? Ummm… we sacrifice the blood of an innocent before each production. Is that weird?

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

BH: You can look deep inside yourself and believe in yourself! Or you can go to nebulusvisions.com

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

BH: It was a mistake to screen this film and you’ll regret it. Seriously though, thanks for providing at platform for local indie filmmakers to screen their work.

The Legend of Drunken Brewmaster will screen during The Emerging Filmmakers Project on Thursday, July 15th, 2021 at The Bug Theatre.
