Q: Why did you become a filmmaker?
BP: The Grawlix success and everything I’ve read, seen, learned from Patrick Sheridan, SAYS produce you’re own work. I’ve got lots of ideas and putting them to film is a real pleasure. Honestly, EFP gave me a lot of the network and confidence to become a filmmaker.
Q: What are we going to see at the EFP? Has it screened elsewhere and what are your plans for it?
BP: The dumbest 48 seconds of your life. A spoof on the proper pronunciation of PHO and the “Americanization” of wanting to be the PHO-KING.
Q: What else are you working on?
BP: Currently I have 5 other shorts I’d like to complete. They are in different stages of development. Post it notes, selfies, napkins, facebook posts and tweets really. I’m performing in Las Vegas end of September at the SLS on Mia Jackson(Last Comic Standing) where the Rat Pack used to perform. Well, symbolically, the Sands was blown up to rebuild the SLS.
Q: Tell us one weird thing about you and/or your movies?
BP: I’m becoming a mortgage broker to help fund my film projects.
Q: Where can people go to find out more about you and your work?
BP: www.brentisfunny.com @
Q: Is there anything you’d like to say about The Emerging Filmmakers Project?
BP: EFP is my favorite networking event for film. I’ve really created an extended film family. Patrick performs just for me sometimes, but I know everyone is laughing on the inside. Thank you to The Bug for having us, the beer for drinking us, and my personal favorite the popcorn for about a $1.
Pho-King is screening on September 17th at the Emerging Filmmaker’s Project.
