Interview with Jeff Meyers. Award winning filmmaker ‘The Blood of Love’

The audience seemed to really like the film and that validates all the effort and creativity and sacrifices you make to bring something like this into reality. You hope what you create will connect with people and it seemed like my film did that. I also appreciate how smart the comments were. Folks really got into the spirit of what “The Blood Of Love,” is about, which is: How far would you go to hold onto the person you love?

Interview with Daniel Reimer, short filmmaker BELL TOWER ENIGMA

It was amazing to see the audience interact with the film. As a short filmmaker you rarely get the opportunity to get that much of detailed feedback from an audience. The general statement “It looks beautiful, but what the hell is going on” didn’t come as that much of a surprise as it is similar to reactions we received from other audiences 🙂 However, I myself enjoy films (or any piece of art for that matter) where there is lots of room for personal interpretation. So it is not that much about the intention of the writer or director, but more about what the audience makes of it for themselves. So in that sense I very much enjoyed the different interpretations and speculations concerning the story.

Interview with Harrison Norris, Director of the award winning film “A PEACEFUL MAN”

It was nice to hear that the audio design was appreciated, particularly that knee stomp (Hi Stewart!). We spent a lot of time making it ‘wetter’, so it’s nice to hear it specifically mentioned. It was also nice to hear the production design was appreciated. The mention of that shot where everything is swept off the table got me particularly, as watching playback for that on set was the first moment I felt we really had something cool in the making.

Interview with the Filmmaking team for the Short Film “MERKUR”

It was very cool. The audience was amazing. It was exactly the kind of reactions we were expecting when we were making the film. Thank you again !

Interview with filmmaker Michael Gorlick (Reinventing the Reel)

Nervous. It is a strange feeling to be listening to comments about your work while you are in the room and they do not know you are there. But that is where you get the honesty and because it is invaluable to get truthful feedback and it is worth it.

Interview with filmmaker Rian Smith (Robbie the Rabbit)

Right before any audience sees my film I immediately think that I’m a fraud and the film is terrible and that I’ll be chased through the streets with pitchforks and tax increases. So, I was relieved that they actually engaged with the film, that’s all I ask.

Interview with Filmmaker Don Duncan (A SIGN)

I was thrilled to finally have the opportunity to see real people react to the film. All the feedback I have had so far has often been either critical or negative (in the case of many professors at my school) or effusive (because I have been present in person at many of the projections). The WILDsound audience could speak freely and honestly and so their impressions were a joy to see. I was also over the moon to see that many in the audience seemed to have grasped and engaged with the main story arc but also with some of the sub-themes of the film. I took a risk by making a film that is somewhat open-ended and one which depends more on visual and musical communication rather than verbal communication. I am delighted to see that, for some in the audience, this paid off.

Interview with filmmaker Pepe Gomez (KNOCKED DOWN)

I was quite nervious at the beginning (watching the audience feedback of my film), but people seemed to react very positively so it really was a great experience.

Interview with filmmaker Camila Moreira Marques (FAT)

I am really happy. First of all, because the audience could understand the feelings that I wanted to convey through my movie and second reason because my animation style also was praised. I am amazed and happy.
