INTERVIEW with filmmaker Jean Bernard
What does your film express about todays generation?
What I hope that it expresses is that we're here, and we have some interesting ground level stories to share with the world, and we're not going to wait for anyone to tell them for us.
What circumstances lead you to make your new film?
Desperation. Time moves forward. Friends get married, have kids, find their paths, etc. That hasn't happened for some of us so we're still finding our way - we hoped this film would guide us a little!
What do you think about the PINK8 Manifesto & Punk Cinema?
It's nice to see people banding together and creating alternative ways to express themselves as well as hubs to communicate with one another. Some people believe that ten to twenty person companies are our future - it's good to see some people getting a head start.
Whats next for you?
Finishing up a short fan film entitled Galveston, based on the novel of the same name by Nic Pizzolato, and working on a Sitcom entitled Battle Jar, in which we're in our second season, and like all people in this business, I'm on the hunt!
