Q: Why did you become a filmmaker?
TJ: I consider myself more of a screenwriter, but would love to do more filmmaking for sure. I started getting into filmmaking around 2010. I was a novelist before and because the publishing industry changed so much I found myself becoming more interesting in film and going that route. So that’s when I wrote my first screenplay.
Q: What are we going to see at the EFP?
TJ: The name of my film is SEASONS CHANGE. Has it screened elsewhere and what are your plans for it? No it hasn’t screened elsewhere, so I’m excited and honored to have it show at EFP.
Q: What else are you working on?
TJ: I’m always writing. I recently wrote a feature called Devil’s Little Girl. Its about the devil’s daughter presenting a life coach on wish if he can convince her father to allow her to marry a mortal. And currently, I’m working on a low budget script called 3 Guys & a Dead Girl.
Q: Tell us one weird thing about you and/or your movies?
TJ: Not sure if its weird or not, but I listen to classical music whenever I write. And normally at least one person has to die in all of my scripts.
Q: Where can people go to find out more about you and your work?
Q: Is there anything you’d like to say about The Emerging Filmmakers Project?
TJ: Just glad that Emerging Filmmakers provides this opportunity for local film artists. Thank you!
“Seasons Change” screens at the February 2017 Emerging Filmmakers Project.
