1972309_689856907724298_464334865_nQ: Why did you become a filmmaker?

RC: I became a filmmaker because I fell in love with telling stories. At an early age I was exposed to all sorts of movies. Westerns, comedies, war films…everything! I would spend hours and hours, days and days just watching the special features behind the ‘making of’ section. It is still to the point where even if I have a copy of say, LA Confidential, I will buy a new one just because it has a making of section (2 disc).

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

RC: This is my attempt at a dark comedy. it is the story of a middle aged man who is inviting you into his day to day lifestyle where he is a father, husband, and knife salesmen at a company called NYFE-CO. It stars Brent Podosek as Bruce, and has only been screened once at an open screen night at a pub, nothing special. It was released online though.

Q: What else are you working on?

RC: I am currently in post production of another short film titled, MONKEY, it is a psycho-science fiction drama that plays with the theory of evolution, the creation/destruction of man, and Shrodinger’s Cat. It stars Haydn Winston as the main character ALBERT and SCOTT K. LESLIE as ADAM. Both of whom are slowly going crazy in a bomb shelter. My plan is for 3 shorts by the end of the year and hope to be moving to LA very VERY soon.

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

RC: I am very fascinated with anti-heroes. With the exception of a few stories the battle between good and evil has always bored me on a wide scale. I believe it occurs more in the mind and heart. That it is more of a battle of our own self, not armies of evil vs. armies of good. Because of this i have always created characters who are not 100% good and not 100% evil. I bring a lot of literary terms and books into my works, and I always try and give myself a creative cameo in all my pictures, not out of ego, but rather because I always loved seeing my favorite directors in my favorite movies. Another weird thing about me is I HATE green screens. Period.

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

RC: You can find my work at (www.youtube.com/moonclockfilms) here you can see my portfolio work from Rabbit Bones to whatever I just made. However, I am most likely going to be making a switch to vimeo very soon. You can also find my work at (www.facebook.com/richardcorso.film) my film team FB is (www.facebook.com/moonclockfilms)

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

RC: I am glad I was chosen, can’t wait to speak on behalf of my work, and the future of cinema. I think Denver is growing and I think this new class of story tellers are doing a great job continuing this art form others and myself have turned into a lifestyle.

WHO’S BRUCE FLYNN? will screen March 20th at The Emerging Filmmakers Project.
