Q/A with Amanda Wong

1. What first drew you to making this specific film project?

I was walking around Providence, Rhode Island, and trying to brainstorm ideas for my senior thesis.  I was completely stuck for a while.  I started filming my walks, started editing, and that’s how it all began.  

2. What is your favorite part of the filmmaking process and why? Any examples of this from your project screening at the MWFF?

My favorite part is learning something new throughout the process, whether it’s a different software technique or understanding how to approach an idea in a new conceptual way.  I would say the whole film, really, is filled with techniques and ideas of things I’ve never done before.

3. What were some influences for you on this project and/or as a filmmaker in general?

A huge influence are painters, writers and musicians, specifically Mark Bradford, James Blake, FKA Twigs, Robert Bolano, Junot Diaz. Although they all work in different mediums, I really admire their depth with every piece, conception of structure, and their progression as artists.  Just their progression itself is a huge inspiration as how one can grow as an artist.  

4. What is your favorite film?

Anything by Rachel Rose, Paul Pfeiffer, or Marcus Armitage.
