While living in Kansas City, I volunteered with the all-volunteer performing arts magazine KC Stage
. We covered not only theatre, but any of the performing arts -- which included the surprisingly strong independent film scene (partially thanks to the, and faculty member Kevin Wilmott).
Additionally, I also (unsurprisingly) participated in a lot of geeky and sci fi activities and helped out with the all-volunteer website SciFi4Me.
So, when I heard Kansas City native Sav Rodgers had made a documentary in connection to a TED Talk about the movie Chasing Amy
, I was understandably confused as to whether I knew him thanks to KC Stage
or SciFi4Me. The thing is: I don't think we ever actually met in person prior to this interview.
I interview him about his TED Talk, being a queer filmmaker, and connecting to Kevin Smith. Head's up: there is some minor cursing in this episode.
