Meet the Filmmaker: Noah Mittman, “Taming Dragons”

Q: Why did you become a filmmaker?
NM: I became a filmmaker because expressing my view of the world visually makes me happier than anything else on this planet. If I have a camera in my hand its rare to see me without a smile.

Q: What are we going to see at the EFP? Has it screened elsewhere and what are your plans for it?
NM: We are going to see Taming Dragons, my personal favorite of my recent work. It has screened at Open Screen Night at the Oriental Theater and at Galaxy Fest in Colorado Springs. I plan on submitting it to as many film festivals as possible in 2015 and see where it takes me.

Q: What else are you working on?
NM: Currently I’m working on a lot of client projects, just came out with a brand video for Erico Motorsports, a downtown Denver motorcycle shop. Also keep an eye out for the Brave American Hero clothing commercial. Its going to be an action sports montage featuring a talented collection of sponsored athletes including myself doing some parkour action.

Q: Tell us one weird thing about you and/or your movies?
NM: With the risk of sounding Michael Bay-ey, I heart slow motion. I think it adds a massive cinematic element when used correctly. You will see its use heavily in Taming Dragons.

Q: Where can people go to find out more about you and your work?
NM: www.snowmanfilms.net

Also I’m active on Facebook, Instagram, Youtube, and Vimeo. Here’s a bunch of links:

Q: Is there anything you’d like to say about The Emerging Filmmakers Project?
NM: As always you guys bring the Colorado film community together and let us party and watch stuff like we love to do. Keep up the hard work, keep showing great films, and thanks again for showing Taming Dragons!

Taming Dragons will screen March 19th at The Emerging Filmmakers Project.
