Feature Sacrifices & Diversity in Film, BTS with Filmmaker, Elaine Chu (Part 2)

This is Part 2, Behind The Scenes (BTS) with Film maker Elaine Chu.

Exactly what it took, timeline to make the movie, commitment and sacrifices. If film school is necessary and what you’re trading by not going. Diversity in film and filmmaking and how it makes movies better.

Elaine Chu is the director of The Purgation and also worked on Excision. She shares with us how she came to be a film maker and what that entailed. How long it took from start to finish and other than time, what it cost her and if it was worth it.

What else she’s been doing and working on and if there will be more horror films in the future. I also outed Carlos as a future film maker and she shares some valuable information. Do you make the movie to make yourself happy or the audience? Plus good ideas for future filmmakers and their work, short form film and why you should absolutely work for free when you’re just starting. And who Elaine would love to work with.

The difference between movies for horror fans and casual viewers, as well as horror film critics and general film critics. There are lots of Purgation spoilers in this series!

Movies mentioned: The Purgation, Excision, Turbo Kid, Candyman, Jordan Peele’s Twilight Zone
