Confinement – Filmfest Preview Q&A
Producers: Sydney Kushak and Joe Clancy
Interviewee: Sydney Kushak
1. What’s your film about?
“Our film is about a teenage boy that causes trouble, and his parents have had the last straw with him. The boy then gets sent away to a rehabilitation camp but not the way you’d expect. When he gets to the camp, he immediately hates it and has a strong urge to escape. The film follows him along his journey out of the camp.”
2. What’s the theme of your film?
“The theme is an action-adventure film.”
3. What was the inspiration for the film?
“We saw some stories online and put a twist on them with our own imagination.
4. Can you describe the filming/editing process?
“We started filming in February, and in May, we are still filming. We have had to refilm scenes and film a lot of scenes so that our film meets the ten-minute minimum requirement. The editing process has been pretty easy, and we will have our film turned in on-time.”
5. How did you choose the actors/actresses?
“Finding actors and actresses was pretty hard, but one of our good friends, Jack [Fitzgibbon], has previous experience with acting, so that’s why he is our main character.”
6. What was your favorite part about the creative process?
“Coming up with ideas, in the beginning, was pretty difficult, but seeing it come together, in the end, has been rewarding.”
7. What messages are you trying to convey?
“The film shows how much Jack hates being at the camp, so he regrets being rude to the principal and his parents.”
8. What can your audience expect to get out of the film?
“There is a lot of suspense from the movie, and they’ll get a lot of good laughs.”
9. How is your film different from the rest?
“Our film has a very interesting plot, and we have a lot of montage scenes. Plus, a lot of movies have a few main characters, and we just have one.”
