Q: Why did you become a filmmaker?
KK: I became a filmmaker because I don’t think I had any choice in the matter. From as early as I can remember I was immersed in the art of filmmaking. As a child I spent most of my days watching movies with my mother. By the age of 8 I knew I wanted to be a filmmaker. By the 6th grade I was gathering my friends to direct a film about a book instead of writing a book report like the teacher wanted.
Q: What are we going to see at the EFP? Has it screened elsewhere and what are your plans for it?
KK: The audience is going to see a short film called “Debris”. It is based on a poem written by Matt Clifford and it was produced and directed in 48 hours for the 2012 Spoken Word Cinema Challenge.
Q: What else are you working on?
KK: I just completed a short film called, “LET ME HOLLA AT YA”, which is a campy, romantic, horror-comedy, thriller. I recently submitted it to several film festivals and I just produced a psychological thriller short film called, “REM”. We have a trailer out now for that film. I am also in post production on a documentary called, “Colorado Cares – The Movie”, which is about a fundraising concert for the victims of the 2012 Colorado Wildfires.
Q: Tell us one weird thing about you and/or your movies?
KK: I love to watch old Kung fu movies with my Italian Greyhound while we eat organic strawberries.
Q: Where can people go to find out more about you and your work?
KK: My facebook page is www.Facebook.com/
Q: Is there anything you’d like to say about The Emerging Filmmakers Project?
KK: I’ve attended several EFP festivals in the past and I am always amazed at the awesome talent that is in the state of Colorado. I think this monthly screening is a stable in the Denver filmmaking community and I’m honored to be chosen to screen here. Thank you.
“Debris” will be screened at the November 2016 Emerging Filmmaker’s Project!
