Meet the Filmmaker: Guillermo Roques, “HWTW”


GuillermoRoques3Q: Why did you become a filmmaker?
GR: After finishing college and living abroad for a few years; I didn’t have a job. But I had a lot of free time. So I started making short movies and learning how to shoot/edit.

Q: What are we going to see at the EFP? Has it screened elsewhere and what are your plans for it?
GR: HWTW is a book trailer. We reenacted the intro chapter of Hap Cameron’s book: Hap Working the World. We did 2 versions. One used to promote the book; and a short-film version, which is the one that will be screened at the Bug Theater.

Q: What else are you working on?
GR: Right now I’m working on a few short documentaries about homelessness in CO; and a long feature documentary of an orphanage in Zimbabwe.

Q: Tell us one weird thing about you and/or your movies?
GR: I like to try new things on each video. So I like them to look as diverse as possible.

Q: Where can people go to find out more about you and your work?
GR: People can see more of my stuff at www.guillermoroques.com

Q: Is there anything you’d like to say about The Emerging Filmmakers Project?
GR: I think EFP is a great chance for filmmakers and film lovers to share their work and keep learning from each other. I guess that’s what it’s all about.

HWTW will screen March 19th at The Emerging Filmmakers Project.
