Meet the Filmmaker: Greth Ligon, “Rabbit Rondo”

Greth Ligon“Rabbit Rondo”


EFP: Why did you become a filmmaker?
GL: I’m primarily a composer/music producer, but I started making films when I took a series of video production classes in high school. It became a great creative outlet for me and always something I strongly connected with.


EFP: What are we going to see at the EFP? Has it screened elsewhere and what are your plans for it?
GL: “Rabbit Rondo” is the name of the song for which the film was created. It was made in collaboration with musicians Nels Cline – http://www.nelscline.com/new-page/ (Wilco, The Nels Cline Singers), Carla Kihlstedt – http://carlakihlstedt.com/ (Tin Hat Trio, Sleepytime Gorilla Museum, Tom Waits, Book of Knots etc.), and Matthias Bossi – http://www.rabbitrabbitradio.com/ (Skeleton Key, Sleepytime Gorilla Museum, Book of Knots, Mike Patton, Tom Waits, etc.). The film has primarily been shown on their sites and other online sources.


EFP: What else are you working on?
GL: I’m currently working on recording a collection of cinematic music, and in pre-production for a short horror film that I hope to shoot in the fall.


EFP: Tell us one weird thing about you and/or your movies?
GL: One weird thing about me: I played a character based on David Lynch in the movie Whensday.


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


EFP: Is there anything you’d like to say about The Emerging Filmmakers Project?
GL: I can’t say enough good things about The Emerging Filmmakers Project! I’ve formed some great friendships and collaborations with people I’ve met there, and I always have a great time. It feels like home to a movie geek like me!


“Rabbit Rondo” will be screening at the August 2016 Emerging Filmmaker’s Project at the Bug Theatre.
