Meet the Filmmakers: Anita Schutte & Donald Rae, “Blameless”

Q: Why did you become a filmmaker?
A&D: Film is a form of storytelling that lasts forever and has a wide reach, theatre, where the majority of us originated is finite, and we wanted to explore those story telling possibilities.

Q: What are we going to see at the EFP? Has it screened elsewhere and what are your plans for it?
A&D: Blameless, was Ruff, Ruff, Dog’s second attempt at a 48 hour film and our first silent piece.

It screened at the 48 hour film best of 2016 and won best use of line of dialogue.

Q: What else are you working on?
A&D: Currently gearing up for what will be our 9th film competition (5 Denver 48’s, 1 London 48, 2 Fourpoints, 1 Flicks 4 Chicks Film Festival), and finishing production on the pilot for our webseries-Susy McPhail-Adventures in Real Estate.

Q: Tell us one weird thing about you and/or your movies?
A&D: Not weird really, but since we do most of the filming in our home, Fred the dog, appears purposely and not so purposely in a lot of our work. He tends to sneak into frame like the ninja dog he is.

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?
A&D: I love that Denver has this platform for local indie film makers.

Blameless will screen during the48Hr Film Project Takes Over The Emerging Filmmakers Project on Thursday, July 18th at The Bug Theatre.
