Meet Leon Welling. Leon is a filmmaker and animator based in Colorado Springs who is currently in post-production on his first feature, Costigan Bloch.  He’ll be screening one of his animated films, Bad Pink, at the November EFP.

EA: Why did you become a filmmaker?

LW: Because I’m incapable of contributing anything else to the planet.

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

LW: Film is called Bad Pink. Sort of a first entry into possible web series. It has not screened anywhere else besides the web.

EA: What else are you working on?

LW: Editing a feature film called Costigan Bloch. During the first half of next year, will be in pre-pro for another feature film along with a web series.

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

LW: I used to be the person who made the funny movies. But it’s been changing a lot, to where I’d prefer to make something funny when I feel funny, and something unnerving when I’m unnerved. In short, I’d prefer to be a complete schizo.

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

LW: My Facebook page, (Kent Leon Welling,) my youtube channel, (CartoonNiche,) and my Twitter ( Leon Welling @CostiganBloch)

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

LW: I’ve attended a few times and have found myself impressed at the rate of work flowing out of Denver. Great venue to meet people and even better resource for future projects.

Bad Pink will screen November 21st at The Emerging Filmmakers Project.
