Meet the Filmmaker: Nick Fiorella, “Numerus Duo”

Q: Why did you become a filmmaker?
NF: From a young age, I have always been into making videos and creative projects. Once I had the tools to edit, I really became obsessed. I haven’t looked back from there 🙂

Q: What are we going to see at the EFP? Has it screened elsewhere and what are your plans for it?
NF: Numerus Duo is about a young Catholic school girl who encounters foul spirits. It has screened at 24 film festivals so far. It has won 24 awards, including Best Film at the Chicago Horror and Super F$%ked Up Film Festival. Best Dark Comedy at the Atlanta Horror Film Festival. It’s been nominated for 17 awards.

Q: What else are you working on?
NF: I just finished a sci-fi script called ‘as·cen·sion’. I am going to film it at the Sand Dunes. Super excited. It will be about 4 minutes long.

Q: Tell us one weird thing about you and/or your movies?
NF: Not sure if this is weird, but I am always incorporating special effects into my films 🙂

Q: Where can people go to find out more about you and your work?
NF: facebook.com/numerusduo Please like our Facebook page and stay tuned for more behind-the-scenes content.

Q: Is there anything you’d like to say about The Emerging Filmmakers Project?
NF: Thank you so much for screening Numerus Duo! This will be the first time I (Nick Fiorella) have watched the film in theaters! lol All the film festivals have been virtual, so I am really looking forward to this. Ready for a beer with some other film-makers 🙂

Numerus Duo will screen during The Emerging Filmmakers Project on Thursday, June 17th, 2021 at The Bug Theatre.
