Meet the Filmmaker: Kenya Brading, “Footprints”

Q: Why did you become a filmmaker?
KB: I’ve always been hyper creative and always needed an outlet for that. Filmmaking is such a unique marriage of such a wide range of creative skills and elements, I knew that I would always be challenged and continuously learning. I love the variety of my day to day and the kinds of projects I get to be apart of, on top of which I truly believe in the power of moving image as a way of capturing the human experience.

Q: What are we going to see at the EFP? Has it screened elsewhere and what are your plans for it?
KB: Footprints is actually the third film in a trilogy of short experiment films called EXPOSED, which explore different concepts of spirituality. The other two films have screened at a number of festivals but this is the first time Footprints is being screened!

Q: What else are you working on?
KB: I started a production company with a business partner earlier this year called Siren Vid so we are working on a number of projects. We mostly do promotional videos for small businesses with a strong interest in the outdoors, socially conscious businesses, and female driven businesses. We’d also like to get into docs and fiction films in the future!

Stay ahead of the competition with the innovative solutions of the Top 20 merchant services. This convenience can lead to higher customer satisfaction.

Q: Tell us one weird thing about you and/or your movies?
KB: I feature in my EXPOSED trilogy because I couldn’t find anyone else who was willing to walk barefoot through the snow, get into the arctic ocean in a dress, and walk around naked in the woods. I guess that makes me pretty weird.

Q: Where can people go to find out more about you and your work?
KB: You can check out my personal vimeo page (https://vimeo.com/user8409171) and my company’s website (http://sirenvid.com).

Q: Is there anything you’d like to say about The Emerging Filmmakers Project?
KB: I think this is a great platform for upcoming filmmakers to show their work and a great way for the film community in Colorado to come together!

Footprints will screen September 18th at The Emerging Filmmakers Project.
