This is a little different from my art and illustration work (I’ll let you know how the SCBWI Conference went in a future post), but I took a Film elective this quarter and in addition to analyzing films, we had to make a short documentary-style film based on one of the AFI’s top 100 films. It had to include at least 5 interviews (friends and family ok) and address whether the film was relevant to audiences today. I picked the great Hitchcock film Vertigo.
I’m grateful to author (Auralia Thread series) and film critic Jeffrey Overstreet and attorney and film lecturer Robert Cumbow, and also my parents and grandmother Brock, Fernette, and Ruth Eide who allowed me to interview them for this film.
If you’d like to watch the my full uncut interviews with Jeffrey Overstreet and Robert Cumbow, see them below. I’m also grateful to the Dusten Kaspar and Seattle Film Festival for letting me film some of the opening moments of their 6-hour Cinema Dissection of Vertigo.
