Q: Why did you become a filmmaker?
LO: I have always loved creating things and ever since I can remember movies have fascinated me. When I was 12-years-old I got my own video camera as a birthday gift and began making these little YouTube videos with my friends. As time went on I began to realize it was something I could never stop doing.

Q: What are we going to see at the EFP? Has it screened elsewhere and what are your plans for it?
LO: Unredeemable. This will be it’s first screening and I plan to submit it to some other film fest in the near future.

Q: What else are you working on?
LO: I just began working on a music video for Cruxvae (a local metal band) and it looks great so far – I’m super excited for it! I’m also wrapping up editing on the last episode this comedy web series I created with Brandon Kehiayan called Scooby-Doo and the Doggie Style Adventures and I’m currently in the process of developing the concept for a horror film I plan to shoot later this year.

Q: Tell us one weird thing about you and/or your movies?
LO: I have always edited my own films and plan to always do so. When I’m directing, I picture in my head how I want the finished product to look and feel it would be very difficult for another editor to fully deliver my vision to the audience.

Q: Where can people go to find out more about you and your work?
LO: To stay updated on all the stuff I’m doing, https://www.facebook.com/lukeostermillerofficial is the best place to go.

Q: Is there anything you’d like to say about The Emerging Filmmakers Project?
LO: I’m very glad to be having one of my films screened here and I feel that The EFP is a great way to showcase work and get feedback from other local filmmakers.

Unredeemable will screen January 17th at 3:00 p.m. during EFPalooza 2015 at The Bug Theatre.
