Since my last post I’ve been pretty busy preparing for this weekend’s upcoming film festival, and one of the things I’ve had to do was a TV-interview with KSFY on Tuesday. (To all my Norwegian readers: KSFY is an ABC-affiliated TV-station here in South Dakota.)
I had to wake up at 3:30 AM to be there for the live morning show with Shawn and Kamie to talk about the documentary, which will be shown at the Sioux Empire Film Festival at the Orpheum Theater, 7:30 PM tomorrow! Please do consider coming, we will have a Q&A after the screening, and there will be loads of amazing films and premieres.
You can watch the interview below:
This is actually the second time in a month that I’ve had to do a TV-interview in FRONT of the camera. It’s funny how different it is being the “interview subject” instead of the journalist, which is what I’m used to, haha. But if it helps promote the film and raise awareness around homelessness, I’m all for it.
Here’s an interview Sarah and I did for KDLT at the premiere of “Over the Bridge.”
It still amazes me how far this documentary have gone already. We had more than 200 people at the premiere, two newspaper articles, two TV-interviews and one film festival invitation — within the first month. Homelessness is clearly something the community wants to know more about, and I feel blessed to have the opportunity to tell such an important story on the big screen. All honor to God!
Yesterday Sarah and I had an almost 3-hour long meeting with a lady who knows the film industry “from the inside,” and we both learned a lot about logistics and PR, but also how to be women in such a male-dominated industry. Very insightful!
Also, it’s not too late to help us get the film into other festivals across the country. CLICK HERE to visit our kickstarter page and donate.
Now I’ll go eat dinner with Karen and Brittany, so talk to you later,
