Please welcome our third Member of the Week, Max Radbill! Max joined LKT in Spring 2012 which makes him apart of our Iota Class. Read his interview below about his trip to Sundance Film Festival, and upcoming workshop he is hosting, and more!
Q: You just attended the 2015 Sundance Film Festival with fellow LKT members Leo Brito and Tony Wilson. How was that experience?
A: Sundance was incredible. Seeing the movies and meeting major film stars and filmmakers was super fun. We watched a lot of short films and I was able to glean a lot of knowledge from them.
Q: As a young filmmaker, what did you learn at the festival?
A: The biggest lesson I learned was that short films can be whatever you want them to be. The better short films were the ones that wereway out there and took risks, narrative and technical risks. So that whole experience of watching the shorts and talking to the filmmakers was out of this world. I would suggest every young filmmaker visit Sundance at least once, it'svery inspiring.
Q: Rumor has it that you are hosting a workshop for LKT in the near future. Could you tell us a bit about it?
A: I will be hosting a creativity workshop this week. The goal of that workshop is to look at the creative process, particularly involved with writing. I want to show people some fun exercises to get creative juices flowing and come up with some strange and funny stuff.
Q: This is your last semester as a Towson student! Any big plans or goals for your final months as a Tiger?
A: My last few months at Towson will be spent writing another screenplay and making my film 3, essentially my senior thesis. This is my last chance to make a lasting impact on the EMF department, and I plan to kick this last semester's butt, and hopefully raise the bar for future film students at Towson.
