Film Festival Q&As 2023: Vivian Wheland
Film: The Game
What is the premise of your film?
“Lily finds herself in need of a large sum of money and turns to an old friend for help. When things do not go as planned, she is forced to play a high-stake game worth more than her life.”
Without spoiling, what should the audience expect to see?
“Expect to see fights, drama, a little bit of humor, and a plot twist.”
How did your group come up with the idea for your film?
“We wanted to make a movie with a twist while adding in elements of a game show. That was a big thing of ours.”
What has the planning and filming process looked like?
“Ever since first semester, we have been working on writing our script to story-boarding it. When we got to filming, we spent most of our weekends and class time filming and editing.”
What’s been your favorite part about creating The Game?
“Acting as a real movie maker was such a fun experience to have because it felt so out of the norm.”
How did you choose the actors/actresses?
“Honestly, the main characters were easy to choose because Allison and I were best friends as kids and knew we’d want to use old pictures of us. The rest was filled in easily with the remaining group members.”
