Q: Why did you become a filmmaker?
AS: I was encouraged to make my first film by Patrick Sheridan. He had taught a screenwriting class and one of the ideas for a film didn’t get any interest from his class. He told me about the premise and I said, I’ll do it! So from that small premise, The Note was created!
Q: What are we going to see at CIWF?
AS: A sweet, sensitive film.
Q: Has it screened elsewhere and what are your plans for it?
AS: No, it’s premiere is at CIWF. I will be submitting it to other film festivals.
Q: How do you feel about being selected to participate in Colorado Independent Women of Film?
Q: What are your hopes for the event?
AS: That it will encourage other women to make films.
Q: How important is it to focus on regional women filmmakers?
AS: It’s important because it shows the creativity and talent in our area.
Q: Who would enjoy attending the festival? Anyone who enjoys making films. Is it just for the filmmaking community, or is there a reason why non-filmmakers should attend?
AS: Not necessarily just for the filmmaking community. A non-filmmaker might be inspired to make their first film!
Q: Tell us one unique thing about you and/or your movies?
AS: The Note won’t be my last film. I would like to make films that deal with social issues and/or have a life lesson. And leave the audience wanting more.
Q: What else are you working on?
AS: No plans at the moment, but I really enjoyed the entire creative process of making a film, from an idea and developing it all the way through.
Q: Is there anything you’d like to say about Colorado Independent Women of Film?
AS: I am glad there is a venue to showcase films made by women. Thank you for screening my film!
The Note will screen Saturday August 17th at 9:00pm at The Bug Theatre.
