meQ: Why did you become a filmmaker?

LG: I never actively decided I wanted to be a filmmaker, it just sort of happened to me! I started with my parent’s handicam filming barbies and my siblings at the age of 10. I took classes in middle school and high school, making video projects whenever I could. And then I decided to major in film in college and here I am today! I became a filmmaker because I wanted to have a job that I loved.

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

LG: This is Roses’s 3rd festival. It premiered at CU Denver’s Cinefest, where it won Audience choice, best production design and best cinematography in May 2013. It’s 2nd festival was at the Colorado Independent Women of Film Festival. We plan on continuing to screen and submit to festivals until May 2014. We will be releasing it on DVD with a package of our other shorts after festival deadlines are done.

Q: What else are you working on?

LG: I am finishing up my very last semester this upcoming Spring! I will be working on one short narrative and one short documentary. Besides that, we have many client projects we do at Liquid Luck! We are currently wrapping up a promo for a Discovery Channel show.

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

LG: Something interesting about this film is that it was filmed in all the original locations that they occurred. All the actors represent someone in my family (names changed of course).

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

LG: Most of our work is on our facebook page: facebook.com/liquidluckp. And our videos are on vimeo: vimeo.com/liquidluck

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

LG: Support local film!

Roses in December will screen December 19th at The Emerging Filmmakers Project.
