Ep. 24: Kathryn Michelle - Actor, Writer, Producer, Director
I'm so happy to share this chat with my dear friend, Kathryn Michelle. I met Kathryn on a film set in upstate New York over a decade ago, and we've been friends ever since. What she has accomplished in the time I've known her truly amazes me. This lady gets more done in a year than most people do in five!
She currently has four projects in the festival circuit, and she talks about the benefits and reasons why a filmmaker would go the festival route. We also talk about the many hats she wears, often at the same time, during her productions, and how the common theme of story carries across all mediums of art that she practices. Oh wait, did I forget to mention graphic design...because she does that, too! And yes, story plays a big part there as well.
Kathryn talks about the challenge of writing and why she started doing it in the first place. And I loved hearing about the inspiration behind the characters she creates, both as a writer and as an actress.
I asked Kathryn to share a few fun facts that we didn't talk about on the show. Here's what she had to say:
- I was a band geek (concert band, marching band and jazz band) -played the tenor sax and clarinet
- I can put down a small jar of peanut butter while watching a movie
- My favorite film is The Fisher King
- I hate talking on the phone
- I had an 11 1/2 pound baby boy
- My favorite color is yellow
- 90% of my wardrobe is made up of blue jeans
- I contradict myself all of the time
You have to love a gal that can put away that much peanut butter in one sitting!
As you can imagine, with all that Kathryn does, we cover quite a lot of ground. You know, my conversation with Kathryn made me think...if you're someone with multiple interests, and talents, why limit yourself? Kathryn does it all, and she inspires me to dive in and do the same! So lets get to it! Here's my chat with my wonderfully awesome friend, Kathryn Michelle!
