Interview | I’ll Tell You When You’re Older

A father contemplates his many regrets when his son discovers a lie fundamental to their entire relationship. Directed by Andy Epsilantis. 1 - How did the initial idea for the film come about? I hate to admit that it started with a title and worked itself out from there because I know that sounds superficial and stupid, but in this case, that’s the truth. I was in a class for undergrad and my friend and classmate, Jari Neuman, was talking about something – I forget the context – but she said what is now the title of the film, “I’ll Tell You When You’re Older,” and I

Interview | Empty Nester

A woman has recently become the sole inhabitant of her long time home - or has she?. Directed by Nicholas Anderson. 1 - How did the initial idea for the film come about? The original idea of the story came way before production started. I had just moved out of my childhood home and had gone to college, making my mother an empty nester.

Then I got the opportunity to get my hands on some equipment a few years later and it all cam

“Bxautiful Nightmarx” by Brittny Williams & Juanita Ingram

During the first 60 seconds of the short film "Beautiful Nightmare," the director reveals us the techniques that will be used to narrate the story. The 9:46 minutes film teaches us an unpredictable character and willing to do everything, which makes it essential for the plot. Regarding the script, we could add that there are a few moments where the dialogues are "mixed", shifting the central conflict off its axis. A resource becomes a conflict; for some moments the attention is focused on "the sandwich" rather than on the real problem. It is easy to fall into these lapses, as a result of
