Meet the Filmmakers: Kimberly and Robert Bogin, “The Magnificent Fourteen (Year Olds)”

Q: Why did you become a filmmaker?
KRB: My husband Rob Bogin (director/writer) and I (producer/editor) have always been into movies. We have our own video production company and we just recently started a film division.

Q: What are we going to see at the EFP? Has it screened elsewhere and what are your plans for it?
KRBThe Magnificent 14 (Year Olds) log line is “Nerdy middle school students, hired by bullied classmates, use their unique skills in a shocking plan of revenge.”

We made the movie for the 48 Hour Film Project (Denver) and won the Audience Choice Award and Best Choreography. We were also accepted into the Portland Comedy Film Fest where the movie screened at the beginning of November. It’s been submitted to a couple of other film fests with notification dates in January.

Q: What else are you working on?
KRB: We’re finishing up a horror short called Homebodies. Our next project is a comedy short called Got Beer.

Q: Tell us one weird thing about you and/or your movies?
KRB: Hmmm…I can’t think of anything really weird. I guess a fun fact is that most of our cast are middle and high school theatre majors from Denver School of the Arts.

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?
KRB: We love that the EFP gives local filmmakers a chance to screen their films at an actual theater. Sometimes it is hard for small filmmakers to get an opportunity to show our work to an audience and get feedback. EFP makes it happen!

The Magnificent Fourteen (Year Olds) will screen Saturday, March 21st at 1:00 p.m. at The Bug Theatre as part of the Saturday Afternoon Shorts block during the 2020 EFPalooza Film Festival.
