Therapy Preview Q&A


Ava Stathakis , Managing Editor of Social Media

Producer: Molly Growney

1.What theme would you consider your film?

“[I’m] not really sure what theme to give our film, but I guess it’s kind if a psychological thriller.”

2. Can you give a brief overview of the plot of your film?

“So, ‘Therapy’ is about a woman who has been having the same repetitive nightmare for a while, and she finally decides to see someone for help. The body of the movie is her recalling this nightmare to the therapist.”

3. What inspired the storyline?

“We actually got the idea from a writing that Brooke (the other producer) and a couple friends wrote last year in Honors English. We thought it was cool, so we lengthened it and made it into a movie.”

4. Through your film, what message are you conveying to your audience?

“For a message, we are covering mental illness for the most part. It’s a serious deal, and it’s important to get help early on before it could get worse.”

5. How is your film different than others being shown?

“Our [film] is different because it sucks you in until the very end. It’s hard to figure out the why she is having the nightmare, plus we have a wider variety of actors and actresses.”

6. Can you provide details of your filming/editing process?

“Our filming process went by quickly. We finished before a lot of others, so we had plenty of time to reshoot anything if needed. It was really fun to be with these people and put something really cool together. Our editing process was kind of meticulous [because] a lot of small things needed to be fixed. It definitely [was] a little challenging and long, but it turned out in the end. Editing and filming is a great bonding experience for everyone.”

7. How did you pick your actors/actresses?

“Our actors and actresses are all friends of ours who have had acting experience. They are all so cooperative and talented, [which] made it easy and enjoyable to work with them.”

8. What can your audience expect to get out of your film?

“We are hoping our audience will be speechless by the end if that’s a good way to phrase it.”

9. What was your favorite part of the creation process?

“[I] don’t have a favorite part. I enjoyed all of it; it was all a ride.”

10. How do you hope your audience will react?

“I think that they will not know what to think.”
