Our newest Member of the Week is Xi Class member, Brennan Kerr! Read Brennan's interview below to hear about his upcoming project and his favorite job position in the film world.
Q: You were just inducted into LKT last semester, which is not that long ago, but how much would you say LKT has affected your college life so far?
A: Yes I was just inducted into LKT last semester, Xi class, and it has completely changed my life. LKT has given me over a hundred new friends that have the same interest as me. It’s an amazing feeling to be able to text a few people and quickly put a crew together to shoot a movie, especially when all those people are just as interested in film as I am. LKT has also made me more social, there isn’t a day where I’m not doing something. LKT has completely changed my life for the better.
Q: What would you say is your favorite job to do in film is? What about it do you like so much?
A: I’d say my favorite job to do in film would be editing. I love the fact that an editor can completely change the feel and look of a movie. The editor can take a horror film and edit it like a comedy. I always look at editing like a giant puzzle with no picture on the box. The movie comes in hours and hours of footage and the editors’ job is to turn that into a short film only minutes in length. Though every job is very important, an editor is the last step and it can make or break a movie.
Q: You have a big production for your Media Studio class coming up! Could you tell us a little about the project, and you're involvement with it?
A: My media studio project is being shot April 17th-19th and it’s an idea I’ve been working on for a few months. It’s a psychological horror starring Christy Czajkowski and Sam Martin. LKT has been a huge supporter towards the project as well; all the actors and crew are actually members of LKT. It’s been a long process to get this into gear but I’m very excited to see how it goes. It’s my first project that is entirely my own, I wrote it, I’m directing it, and I’m going to edit it. It’s a little intimidating to do this project but LKT has been a huge help and I can’t thank everyone enough.
