Q: Why did you become a filmmaker?
RW: Well, I have no other applicable job skills.

Q: What are we going to see at the EFP? Has it screened elsewhere and what are your plans for it?
RW: It’s a time-lapse video. I shot a bunch of time-lapses around the city throughout the year. The video has not screened anywhere else but the internet. And nobody on the internet watches my videos so I don’t think that counts. I currently have no plans for the video. When I’m more satisfied with the overall edit/clips, I might submit it to some film festivals.

Q: What else are you working on?
RW: In an attempt to learn narrative film-making, I’ve been AC-ing on some films around town and taking Acting acting classes at the Film Acting Academy of Denver.

If anybody reading this needs help with a film, I am almost always available.

Q: Tell us one weird thing about you and/or your movies?
RW: Um, I think I’m pretty normal but my movies are a bit off the wall. I guess its how I express my weirdness.

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

Q: Is there anything you’d like to say about The Emerging Filmmakers Project?
RW: Yes, EFP is great. It gives you (filmmakers) a chance to get feedback from people who don’t personally care about you. For example, my Mom always loves my work. It also gives amateur filmmakers a reason to keep creating and getting better.

Denver 2014 will screen December 18th at The Emerging Filmmakers Project.
