Meet the Filmmaker: Kaitlin McMullen, “Patrick Sheridan’s Purpose”

Q: Why did you become a filmmaker?
KM: I have grown up with a camera by my side due to my parents documenting my every move. I got inspired by my family for filming the memories in a physical format with their cameras. I further on decided to learn how to film and edit videos together to create this type of visual art.

Q: What are we going to see at the EFP? Has it screened elsewhere and what are your plans for it?
KM: We will be seeing my documentary of Patrick Sheridan. The title of the film is Patrick Sheridan’s Purpose because I wanted to showcase his rhyme and reason for being on this planet.

Q: What else are you working on?
KM: I’ve been working on various short films, music video, and documentaries. Documentaries are definitely the genre of film that I am most passionate about.

Q: Tell us one weird thing about you and/or your movies?
KM: A weird about me is that I can free style rap about any subject and every time I edit my films I have to be drinking chocolate milk to help me concentrate.

Q: Where can people go to find out more about you and your work?
KM: You can find more of my content on vimeo and instagram as Kaitlin McMullen.

Q: Is there anything you’d like to say about The Emerging Filmmakers Project?
KM: I am so happy to be part of something so amazing. It brings me that filmmakers can come together, enjoy content, and inspire each other to be creative.

Patrick Sheridan’s Purpose will screen at The Emerging Filmmakers Project on Thursday, June 15th at The Bug Theatre.
