Humber Film and Television Production students talk about their final projects


[music plays throughout] [interviewer]
Tell us a little about yourself and, uh, your role in this film. [man 1]
I was the writer-director. Um, wrote the film
about six months ago or so, and it’s taken
a lot of different incarnations, and I was lucky enough
to, uh, to have it chosen and be given the chance to direct
in my final year. [man 2] From the moment that, uh,
we were in class and read the script, I was in love with this. Uh, I actually waited
outside the classroom for Keith to walk out of the class,
and I looked at him, I was like, “When they pick this script,
I wanna work on it.” [interviewer]
And, uh, where did the story come from? What did you draw
your influences from? [woman 1] My family’s
a huge influence for me, so I always draw
on something that’s happened to me, or just an experience
that I’ve had. [woman 2]
I wanted the script to be picked just because
I really liked what I wrote. [laughs] I thought it was awesome, and I,
I just wanted to share it with people. [man 1]
When the production came, I mean,
everybody was prepared, um, we were really lucky with our cast,
we were really lucky with locations. [woman 3]
But we always made the day. We’re rushing around,
like any set, but we got everything
that we needed done in that day, and we- you know,
you move on to the next set. [man 4] From the get-go,
I knew I wanted to be a director. You know, everyone
wants to come in being a director, but they just don’t know
how much work it is. It was a real big eye-opener
as to, you know, this is fantastic, this is-
this is exactly what I wanna do. [woman 4] The most rewarding part
of making “Little Man versus Big Power” was honestly just seeing the crew
in a positive mentality. [man 5] Just make something
that you’re gonna fall in love with, ’cause you’re gonna
be tied to this project for, for a very long time, man. Yeah, be risky, man,
take chances. [woman 5] It’s been great.
Um, I’ve learned a lot, I’ve learned a lot of stuff
about film in general, and how productions work,
how crews work, and how to how to handle myself,
I think, in those situations. I’ve learned a lot. [music fades out]
