Today I feel I have been born again, and I write this blog as a fresh new babe in the film world.
BUT where are my manners? Before I go into detail about my recent departure(s) from reality into the magical world of film production, allow me to introduce myself!
My name is Kat, and I'm the new Talking to Crows intern!!! *crowd pretends to care*
I am a 3rd year Western student and I study, you guessed it, FILM! I am interested in many aspects of film, including cinematography, directing, and line production, but I also study acting and pursue theater in my education and free time. Don't worry, I won't be constantly referencing shitty musicals, consider me a cool theater kid.
My degree emphasizes a social justice lense to filmmaking, and I am interested in crafting compelling narratives surrounding complex issues, such as: women's rights, food justice, and putting an end to leaving christmas lights up year-round.
Eventually I would like to have a career in film, and my passion for the craft, combined with my decidedly extra personality, means I should fit in just fine here at Talking to Crows...
only time can tell.
When I'm not doing film stuff you can catch me binging The Great British Baking Show on Netflix, and trying to prove that Facebook spies on us through our devices by yelling about the Power AirFryer™ in front of my laptop, and then checking my Facebook for ads about it.
I am really stoked to start working with Stacy and Cassidy, but between you and me, I'm a little scared. Not in a like, BOO! kind of way... (although they did tour with Evil Dead: The Musical for four years 😮) But it's more like I'm not really sure what to expect.
Most of the time when I do film projects I'm working with men- usually guys in flannels who have long beards and seem vaguely greasy- not with literal cinema angels who wear crushed velvet pants and exemplify my future goals succinctly in a 5'5" (respectively) frame. So yeah, it's a little terrifying.
BUT! I feel refreshed, energized, and yes REBORN because it is so inspiring to work with a mostly-female team of successful filmmakers. As a young woman in film, I am so blessed to have this opportunity to begin working at a local level inspiring more women to infiltrate and conquer traditionally male dominated fields.
And now allow me to step gingerly off my soapbox and leave you with this heartfelt introduction (that also happens to be my Tinder bio) and a final HELLO!
