Tim Maupin is a talented Chicago-based filmmaker. He lent his cinematography skills to our promotional material. Read his Q+A below to learn more about his work.
Q: How did you get involved with Searching for Isabelle?
A: I got involved through an introduction to Stephanie by a mutual friend. After doing my own Kickstarter campaign, I was able to impart some tips to Stephanie and agreed to help out.
Q: Give us insight on your process. How was the experience of shooting the pitch video?
A: My process is all about being creative and adapting to whatever is needed to get a good shot or tell the story, regardless of budget. I try to use natural light as much as possible, and don’t feel that everything has to look perfectly smooth to translate emotion. Shooting with Stephanie was great. She’s one of the most organized and prepared people I have worked with!
Q: Tell us about your other projects, jobs, goals, passions, etc.
A: I am currently in the festival circuit with my short film, “The Last Generation to Die”, and am working on turning it into a feature. I also have several other projects in development, including another feature concept in the second round of the Sundance/Sloan commissioning grant and a potential virtual reality cinematic project. I ultimately want to be working full time as a director, both in commercials and feature films.
Q: What are you watching and/or listening to these days (Film/TV, music)?
A: Recently watched The Thin Red Line again, and ironically, just watched the Thin Blue Line and just finished Narcos on Netflix.
Q: Coffee or Tea?
Q: What are you favorite thriller/fantasy films?
A: Favorite thriller/fantasy films- hmmm… Zodiac, The Silence of the Lambs, Pan’s Labyrinth.
