Q: Why did you become a filmmaker?

KL: I became a filmmaker because life was too easy. Haha. Nothing, I repeat NOTHING, is more stressful than making a film. I love a good challenge!

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

KL: You will see my attempt at being a first-time director. This was my first ever short film and the experience was so gratifying that I intend on there being many many more! The Wolves has screened many times before. It took home Best Drama and Best Overall Film at the Steamboat Student Film Festival, Best Drama and Best Overall Film at the Colorful Colorado Film Festival for Youth, and Best Drama at the Pi Awards. It is also included in the official selection for Intendence Film Festival taking place at the end of this month.

Q: What else are you working on?

KL: I’m currently working as the AC for local web series Inner Dimension created by Kasha Fauscett. I will be filming a documentary following a group of backpackers in Hawaii at the end of this month. I will also be entering pre-production for my next short film (I’m addicted!) shortly as well.

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

KL: This film is quite dark as you will see. I always tell myself I should do a comedy for once, but each time I have a new idea, it always end up having shades of a dark conspiracy theory film. I think it’s ironic because I’m quite a bubbly individual!

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

KL: Follow me on Facebook is probably the best way! https://www.facebook.com/pages/Kate-Lowell/456456247771770

Q: Is there anything you’d like to say about The Emerging Filmmaker’s Project?

KL: I love it! And I absolutely love the board! I am eternally grateful for Patrick Sheridan and Mark Mook– they have both taught me so much! Thank you EFP!

The Wolves will screen June 19th at The Emerging Filmmakers Project.
