Meet the Filmmaker: Carlos Daniel Flores, “I Am A Photon”

photon-cover“I am a Photon”
Q: Why did you become a filmmaker?

CF: Filmmaking is one of those things I somewhat inadvertently stumbled upon when I was younger. I already had a passion for music, writing, art and photography, and film just beautifully puts all of those together. I love the technical challenge, the endless possibilities for telling the human story, and just about everything about the process.

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

CF: “i am a photon” is a very personal little film touching on the queer identity and struggling with the liberation of body and mind. It is the first in a series of short cinematic poems (as we’re calling them), conceived mostly to hone our skills, open up our creative process with a more improvisational flow, and meeting new talented people in the Denver area. This is the first time it shows on a real screen!

Q: What else are you working on?

CF: I am currently in pre-production for another short poem, and refining a feature length screenplay to be produced here in Denver.

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

CF: I have never gotten to see The Wizard of Oz with the sound on, and I’m kind of almost okay with that.

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

CF: For general updates, www.facebook.com/watcheyestudios

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

CF: This is my first time attending the EFP, and I am excited for the chance to see what it is all about and to meet some fresh faces!
“I am a Photon” will be screening at the September 2016 Emerging Filmmaker’s Project at the Bug Theatre.
