Meet the Filmmaker: Daniel Eltzroth & Jesse Theilman, “An Outright Dog”

Q: Why did you become a filmmaker?
DE: As aspiring artists and passionate fans of film, photography, literature, and music, we felt film was the best vehicle for us to share our artistic visions. We want to tell stories that resonate with both our sensibilities  and experiences. Our goal is to make the kind of movies that as fans of film, we would want to see in a theater.

Q: What are we going to see at the EFP? Has it screened elsewhere and what are your plans for it?
DE: At EFP, we are going to see a film that follows a guy who is trying to get right side up in the books – a guy who is desperate for a home run.

This film has only live on our YouTube Page and hasn’t screen in the public previously. Our plan is to show this at EFP trying to gather some constructive criticism and feedback. We want to know what works and what doesn’t.

Q: What else are you working on?
DE: We are currently working on a project that centers in on a project that centers in on a character who is forced into a fresh start after being fired from his white collar job one morning. He goes on a hike looking for answers, but ends up with more questions than answers.

Q: Tell us one weird thing about you and/or your movies?
DE: One weird thing about us is that we became creative partners after being randomly paired together in college in an Audio class. We haven’t been able to shake one another since.

Q: Where can people go to find out more about you and your work?
DE: Frick and Frack Productions on YouTube and Facebook.

Q: Is there anything you’d like to say about The Emerging Filmmakers Project?
DE: We are incredibly honored and excited to be a part of the June 2018 edition of The Emerging Filmmakers Project. We look forward to meeting fellow fans of film and filmmakers alike from the Denver community.

An Outright Dog will screen at The Emerging Filmmakers Project on Thursday, April 19th at The Bug Theatre.
