Meet the Filmmaker: Jared Vigil, “The Rejects: A Christmas Story”

EFP: Why did you become a filmmaker?

JV: I became a filmmaker to tell interesting and compelling stories using audio and video as the medium.

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

JV: We are going to see “The Rejects” A Christmas Story. This is the first time the animated short has screened. I plan to turn it into a series with multiple episodes.

EFP: What else are you working on?

JV: I’m currently working on an action/sci-fi short called “Time Jump” which I plan to release late summer of 2022.

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

JV: One weird thing about this animated short is that it’s done in a South Park style look but the characters feet actually move.

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

JV: People can find more of my work at JaredVigilProductions.MyPortfolio.com

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

JV: I just want to say thank you to the Emerging Filmmakers Project this will be my 4th film they have showcased and I really appreciate the support and everything they do for the local filmmaking community.

The Rejects: A Christmas Story will screen during The Emerging Filmmakers Project on Thursday, December 16th, 2021 at The Bug Theatre.
