ATLFF Filmmaker Sam Carter Kills the Mix-and-Match Questionnaire

Complete this sentence: "If you liked _________ or _________, you'll love my film."

It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia or Very Bad Things 

Is your film for cat people or dog people? Why?

Cat People, because cats are @$$holes. 

What's the most challenging part of making a film for you? Do you enjoy the challenge or is it something to be avoided?

Post Production. I greatly prefer writing or being on the set. But, it is nice to eventually see how the movie comes together in post.

Of the filmmakers working today, whose talent do you want to steal?

Edgar Wright! The man fuses style and substance so effortlessly. 

Name three films you consider unappreciated and explain their hidden genius.

I'm a big fan of dark comedy and satire, so...

1) "Death to Smoochy"- Brilliantly cartoonish film that showcases the late great Robin Williams talent for over the top lunacy.

2) "Bamboozled" - I've always loved "Network" and "A Face in the Crowd" and thought that Spike Lee did a great job taking those stories, fusing them together, and making them his own.

3) "The Ladykillers" (Coen Bros. version) - I still quote this movie with my friends. A really fun and twisted caper that you can see that the Coens had a blast making. Never have been able to figure out why it's so widely panned.

What are your three favorite ways to eat potatoes?

Baked, mashed, and distilled into vodka.

Sam's film, "Good Grief Suicide Hotline,"  plays TONIGHT at The Plaza at 9:30pm! There are still tickets left for this comic feature from a GA-based featured Creative Conference panelist.
