Congratulations to FF2 Associate Giorgi Plys-Garzotto for posting her NYU film "Won't Somebody Think of the Children" on the We Are Moving Stories site:
Here is a snippet from the WAMS interview:
Congratulations, Giorgi! Why did you make your film?
This film was my senior thesis at NYU, the culmination of four years studying film at the Tisch School of the Arts! Because of the resources I was able to secure from Tisch, plus the money I’d been saving for all of college, it was the biggest artistic undertaking I had ever been able to do, so I wanted the film to be a bold, stylized expression of who I am as a writer and director that I could then use to start off my professional career. I wrote the first draft of Won’t Somebody Think of the Children?! in a sophomore year screenwriting class, and I ended up just thinking about these two little girls and their comic book long after that class was over, like their story was stuck in my head. Won’t Somebody Think of the Children?! basically just followed me around for the next year and a half; it wouldn’t leave me alone! All the themes I wanted to explore and the stylistic progress I made in my work kept washing up on the beach of this story, until I started thinking about what my thesis should be, and there it was!
What are you looking to achieve by having your film more visible on www.wearemovingstories.com?
Now that I’ve made this film I want as many people as possible to see it! Hopefully the exposure of being featured on We Are Moving Stories will help me broaden the film’s reach.
Who do you need to come on board (producers, sales agents, buyers, distributors, film festival directors, journalists) to amplify this film’s message?
A distributor would be great, and I’d be beyond excited if any journalists out there are interested in reporting on the film too!
You Go, Giorgi!
