In the interest of self promotion here is a link to an interview with me about the monthly local short film showcase that I co-produce here in Salt Lake City at Brewvies, an awesome brew pub/theater, called Channel 801. To be fair, I am super gabby and talk about a whole lot more than just Channel 801.
“It’s been a while since we’ve chatted about a monthly film festival, but to be fair, many of them have been here — or there — as far as planning and official events. That’s why it was a treat to find a brand-new festival in the format at Brewvies under the title Channel 801. Following in the footsteps of its California-based original, the film series has fans in the audience vote on the films submitted to stick around to the next week with a brand-new episode, or be shot down and forced to submit something entirely new.
Today, I chat with one of the founders, Ben Fuller, about his career in film, starting up Channel 801 and the first few shows, thoughts on the film community and a few other topics. (All pictures courtesy of Fuller and Channel 801.)”
