Making of the Spider

Meet the Filmmaker: Kevon Ward

Taking a break from re-writing “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull”, our Mark Mook was able to trap Kevon Ward in his web long enough to answer a few questions.

MM:  Why did you become a filmmaker?

KW:  My background is SFX, but in general I just love entertainment. Through film, your work and legacy can last forever.

MM:  What are we going to see at the EFP? Has it screened elsewhere and what are your plans for it?

KW:  I will be showing my “Making of the Spider” video. A step by step video of how my animatronic was built. It has been aired at the Oriental Theatre and will be featured in the upcoming indie film “Gray Matter”.

MM:  What else are you working on?

KW:  An animatronic head, SFX makeup, set design for the 13th Floor, illustration and graphic design and acting in a few upcoming films.

MM:  Tell us one weird thing about you and/or your movies?

KW:  I have a fetish for creepy, crawly things. This is why I made the spider originally. I’ve had many tarantulas, scorpions, snakes, rats, etc.

MM:  Where can people go to find out more about you and your work?

KW:  For now Facebook under Kevon Ward. Soon I will develop a website and some more demo reels.

MM:  Is there anything you’d like to say about The Emerging Filmmakers Project?

KW:  These events have helped me come a long way in networking and landing film opportunities.

MM:  Thank you Kevon for taking a break from creating creepy-ness and bad dreams and allowing me to interview you.  You can come see his work Thursday June 20th at The Emerging Filmmakers Project.

The Emerging Filmmakers Project is held every third Thursday at the historic Bug Theatre, 3654 Navajo St., Denver CO.  Doors open at 7:30pm and films start at 8.
