Q: Why did you become a filmmaker?

MS: As a Devry University dropout, my options were limited to making cartoons or delivering pizzas. Making cartoons puts less wear and tear on my car.

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

MS: You’ll see a wide array of material based on real-world pain and suffering. Shoving hard-hitting life issues right into the face of a fearful society. Either that or something about a religious zombie as well as birds talking about crapping on things. The plan is always to get the material out to the people and create mirth and merriment. Because the EFP is the bravest, most daring venue around, this is the first time this material has been publicly screened (at least to my knowledge).

Q: What else are you working on?

MS: My laundry. Pertaining to material: There’s always some kind of fun topic that’s bubbling in my stomach and then vomited onto the internet. I’ve also been working on a series of cartoons for pre-schoolers under the name “Applelanche.” No, seriously. Look it up.

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

MS: I’m my own unpaid intern.

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

MS: Oh man! Everywhere! Look under your seat right now! If there’s not an envelope filled with my material underneath your seat, you can always find Happy Fatties and Applelanche cartoons all over the internet. To save you time and from questionable material found on Google from typing in the word ‘fatties,’ you can just go here: www.happyfattiestoons.com.

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

MS: They have the best Chinese buffet in town!

A Game of Numbers will screen January 15th at 8:00 p.m. and Social Assassins will screen January 16th at 9:00 p.m. during EFPalooza 2015 at The Bug Theatre.
