This week on Post Everything, we spoke with two local filmmakers in Victoria, Jeremy Lutter and Daniel Hogg.
Jeremy Lutter is a graduate of the Creative Writing program at UVic and a Victoria native. His films have played featured on MuchMusic and Bravo (among others) and his most recent short film Joanna Makes a Friend has won several awards including winning the Viewer’s Choice award at both the Toronto International Film Festival and the Victoria International Film Festival.
Daniel Hogg, also a Victoria native, has been writing, directing, and producing short films for over a decade as well as serving as a mentor for film students at the University of Victoria.
His UVic biography lists his many achievements in film including, “… director of photography on over 35 short films and award-winning music videos, his work has broadcast nationally on Much Music and its affiliate channels, screened in festivals across North America, and been represented in several regional award-winners and nominees.”
For this episode, we spoke to both of them about their new film Floodplain. Floodplain is based on a short story by Invermere native D.W. Wilson and tells the coming of age story about two high school sweethearts who learn that love demands sacrifice when they fulfill a childhood promise to raft a floodplain in the Kootenay Valley. They also chatted about teaching film, making movies in the age of the internet, and shared a couple of film festival stories.
