Q: Why did you become a filmmaker?
JH: I like to tell stories, and to preserve stories. Film feels like one of the best ways to do that in way that is accessible to many different people.
Q: What are we going to see at the EFP? Has it screened elsewhere and what are your plans for it?
JH: This is a short film called, “Clippings.” Previously, it screened in Paducah, Kentucky at the River’s Edge International Film Festival. Look up Paducah! It’s wonderful!
Q: What else are you working on?
JH: I finished a rough, rough, rough draft of a feature screenplay, wrote some websides (now shelved), and brainstormed a short film featuring a giant rock. Basically, I’ve been on hiatus, though, and am currently thinking of going back into the documentary direction, which is what I originally expected to do when I started making films way back when. I’ve been shooting some outdoors films with my boyfriend. We might do that for a while. We’ll see!
Q: Tell us one weird thing about you and/or your movies?
JH: Almost all of my films have stemmed from a joke idea that transformed into a real idea.
Q: Where can people go to find out more about you and your work?
JH: You can visit my website www.youmayclap.com (maybe it’ll be back up by the time you click on it) or find You May Clap Productions on Facebook: facebook.com/
