The Emerging Filmmakers Project video
Earlier this year, I was approached by Patrick Sheridan, who runs The Emerging Filmmakers Project at the Bug Theatre in Denver, about producing a short documentary/promo video for the EFP. Being a big fan and a regular attendee of the event myself, I was happy to do it. So, over the course of several months I have filmed interviews with the people who run the screenings, as well as testimonials from many of the filmmakers, actors and supporters of the local independent film community. With the footage I gathered at several EFP events, I put together a short video that shows what EFP is all about and hopefully reflects the spirit of the local filmmaking community.
So, what exactly is The Emerging Filmmakers Project, you may ask? Well, the video below does a pretty good job of explaining it, but briefly put – EFP has been the home of Denver’s independent film scene since 2002. Held the third Thursday of every month and hosted by Patrick Sheridan, a local filmmaker himself, the EFP is a great place to screen your work, network with other creatives in town and to support your fellow indie filmmakers.
EFP has been an important part of my life, as well. The event itself is always quirky and fun, and it provides a constant source of motivation and creative inspiration. Not to mention that the Bug Theatre is a fantastic, cozy venue, and thanks to the EFP, I’ve also met a great number of like-minded, creative and talented people.
