“This Light Will Find You”


11800621_10153040959479562_1232999161399071512_nQ: Why did you become a filmmaker?

BS: I became a filmmaker because I love watching my characters come to life and I can share it with others.

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

BS: You will be seeing my stop-motion thesis film “This Light Will Find You” and it has not screened elsewhere yet.  I plan on continuing to improve it further, because it is not quite finished to the level I was hoping for.  I also hope to someday re-create this film again with a team of other talented individuals.

Q: What else are you working on?

BS: Currently I’m heavy into job searching because I just graduated and stepping foot into the industry is extremely important to me. I have a few stop-motion film ideas in the works, though.

Q: Tell us one weird thing about you and/or your movies?
BS: I have a cat shirt obsession.
Q: Where can people go to find out more about you and your work?
BS: My website has all of my information and work on it: Briannaschumacher.com
Q: Is there anything you’d like to say about The Emerging Filmmakers Project?
BS: I’m extremely excited to have received this opportunity and I really appreciate that this project is shedding light on local filmmakers.
“This Light Will Find You” will be screening on September 17th at the Emerging Filmmaker’s Project.
