Meet the Filmmaker: Ryan Frazee, “Redlands – Losing My Mind (Official Music Video)”

Q: Why did you become a filmmaker?
Frazee: I’ve always enjoyed capturing moments and telling the stories that surround them. Since then, I couldn’t get enough of telling stories in the most interesting way possible. 

Q: What are we going to see at the EFP? Has it screened elsewhere and what are your plans for it?
Frazee: This is a music video that I created for a band called Redlands. It’s about a man finds himself wrapped up in the dizzying spell of a seductress unsure of what is reality and what is a dream. 

Q: What else are you working on?
Frazee: Lots of music videos and other music-related projects! Day to day I direct and edit corporate and commercial projects.

Q: Tell us one weird thing about you and/or your movies?
Frazee: I tend to care more about the sound in my films than I do the visuals. I come from a music background and have spent a lot of time with musicians in studios filming videos for them and seeing them add tiny little elements to songs that really make a song “pop”, made me want to start adding that to my films! Since then I find myself spending a lot of time adding layers of sound in moments that it fits.

Q: Where can people go to find out more about you and your work?
Frazee: You can follow my Instagram @rfrazee or see all of my film and photo work at ryanfrazee.net

Q: Is there anything you’d like to say about The Emerging Filmmakers Project?
Frazee: I’m excited to get involved in the film making community that you’ve created and love that Denver has the Emerging Filmmakers Project to look out for and support independent filmmakers!

Redlands – Losing My Mind (Official Music Video) will screen at The Emerging Filmmakers Project on Thursday, March 21st at The Bug Theatre.
