Q: How do you feel about being selected to participate in Colorado Independent Women of Film?
LL: I’m incredibly excited and honored to have been selected to participate in Colorado Independent Women of Film.
Q: What are your hopes for the event?
LL: I hope I can meet some other independent women filmmakers, learn from them, and have some great conversations. The opportunity that Colorado Independent Women of Film provides is so important because it makes space for women like me in an exclusive and inaccessible field. This festival is actively changing the climate of the film community, and I’m excited to be a part of it.
Q: Tell me briefly about yourself and your film/project.
LL: Toilet Paper Romance is a story that pokes fun at several different film tropes, namely romantic comedy tropes. This film was completed by an all female crew, consisting of myself as writer and director, Kyna Moore as cinematographer and primary editor, Kaitlin Kunkler as sound design and assistant editing, Jessie Morgan as production assistant, and Lisa Taber as graphic designer.
Q: Is there anything you’d like to say about Colorado Independent Women of Film?
LL: Throughout the production process and long after, people have consistently been surprised that the crew was made entirely of women, and they shouldn’t be. It’s not amazing that women can do the same things men can do, it’s just science. Women can make movies and women can do comedy, and I look forward to continue proving that.
Toilet Paper Romance will screen Friday, June 12th at 7:00 p.m. at The Bug Theatre.
