Meet the Filmmaker: Lindsay Morrison, “Hi Larry :)”

Q: Why did you become a filmmaker?
LM: I initially got into film via music videos of the 90s. I didn’t necessarily understand it as a career, but the art form intrigued me. Then I took a “Films of David Lynch” course in college and that’s what got me into the idea of directing. I was so inspired by his strange clues and unusual plot structures, and that’s when I finally started making my own short films. Directing for the first time, I was hooked, and pretty soon found myself in Los Angeles, going to film school at USC. I’ve explored many art forms, but film is by far my favorite. I love the ability to bring dream images to life and to tell unusual stories.

Q: What are we going to see at the EFP? Has it screened elsewhere and what are your plans for it?
LM: You will be seeing Hi, Larry:) which was my team’s submission to the 2018 Denver 48 Hour Film Project. Team WOLF LUV pulled the horror genre and we were so thrilled because it is our favorite. It screened at the 48 Hour Film Festival that year, of course, and then one other time at the Bug’s Open Screen Night. Our plans are to have it available online so as to spread its joy for many years to come.

Q: What else are you working on?
LM: I recently started a production company with my partner in life and in crime, Michael La Breche. We are WOLF LUV FILMS and we are currently working on an anthology series called Reliquary. We screened the first installment of it at the Bug twice this year, as well as at the H.P. Lovecraft Film Festival in Providence, RI and Portland, OR. We received warm receptions and are thrilled to report that we will go into production mode on episode 2 next month.

We also have been in development on a feature horror film, entitled LATEX and are getting ready to launch into pre-production on that as soon as we secure funding, hopefully early 2020. Meanwhile we are building our production company from the ground up. We recently moved into a larger work space and can’t wait to get shooting again.

Q: Tell us one weird thing about you and/or your movies?
LM: I love my villains and am often caught by my husband quoting my own villain’s lines in every day life, which is probably scary for him since my villains are almost always women and they usually attack men. But don’t worry, my female villains attack women too; they are equal opportunity monsters.

Q: Where can people go to find out more about you and your work?
LM: You can find more WOLF LUV FILMS info and content at wolfluvfilms.com, and you can find my director reel on my personal website: lindsaymorrison.com.

Q: Is there anything you’d like to say about The Emerging Filmmakers Project?
LM: I am always grateful for an opportunity to screen at EFP. I think EFP is a vital part of the Denver film community and I am thrilled to be a part of it.

Hi, Larry 🙂 will screen during The Emerging Filmmakers Project on Thursday, October 17th at The Bug Theatre.
