Meet the Filmmaker: Justin Christenson, “Simulacrum”

Q: Why did you become a filmmaker?
JC: Not sure I am a filmmaker yet, but telling stories and wearing pants are what sets us apart from most living things, and I’m not interested in wearing pants.
Q: What are we going to see at the EFP? Has it screened elsewhere and what are your plans for it?
JC: Simulacrum is about a girl dealing with the loss of her father, but you’ll see something completely different.
This will be it’s premiere, but we hope people will respond and we get to show it again and again.
Q: What else are you working on?
JC: Currently writing a dystopian tech-noir I think. America isn’t ready just yet.
Q: Tell us one weird thing about you and/or your movies?
JC: I wanted the title to be “Circumcision” but I was overruled.
Q: Where can people go to find out more about you and your work?
Q: Is there anything you’d like to say about The Emerging Filmmakers Project?
JC: Keep helping the little guy stand up amongst his peers. It means more than you know.
Simulacrum will screen at The Emerging Filmmakers Project on Thursday, September 21st at The Bug Theatre.
