Julia Pott’s animated short, “Howard” tells the story of love gone cold. We spoke to Julia about hope, heartbreak and animal metaphors.
We spoke to Kaia Rose, one half of the directing team behind “Looking Forward to Yesterday”, a film which shifts between tragic and life-affirming and raises more questions than it offers answers. We spoke to Kaia about the process they went through in making the film and what it can help us to understand about love and relationships.
We met the Blaine Brothers; the filmmakers responsible for the hilarious “0507”, a sketch about the unforeseen perils of modern technology which will commence our “Hope and Heartbreak” series of shorts.
We spoke to Michael Mohan, the director of what is arguably the evening’s raunchiest film, “Ex-Sex”, about how he managed to keep the film’s sex scene suitably erotic yet refreshingly cliche-free and the impact of what we discovered is a scrabble board inspired aesthetic.
We spoke to codirector Tom Isler about love and relationships and how the two can be reconciled with life in a city like ours.
