Meet the Filmmaker: Rion Smith, “Devil in the White City”

“Devil in the White City”

Q: Why did you become a filmmaker?

RS: Because I love the idea of building things, building worlds, doing the special effects and love to see ideas come to life.

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

RS: Not screened anywhere else, just been on youtube so this is the first time it’ll be on the big screen.

Q: What else are you working on?

RS: I am always working on something to challenge myself. Currently, working on an alien movie.

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

RS: Weird thing….I love explosions and have crafted the effect pretty well. I’ve blown myself up at least a 100 times.

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

RS: Youtube search my name. There is a litany of home videos and some creative projects I’ve worked on.

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

RS: You guys rock!

“Devil in the White City” will be screening at the October 2016 Emerging Filmmaker’s Project!
