Video Interview with Filmmaker Matthew Paris

Filmmaker Interview by Chris Olson


As a film critic, it has been my honour to interview a wonderful mix of filmmakers over the years and after my most recent Zoom interview with Matthew Paris, I am in awe of the grit and determination they often have towards their craft.


During our interview, Matthew talks about his short filmmaking, his writing process, acting, directing, and the role of a producer. He also goes into a bit of detail about how to sell a film - which I am sure will be interesting reading for a lot of filmmakers out there.


Film fans will be able to enjoy Matthew Paris talk about his short films, in particular The Eyes On Me, in which Paris plays a small part at the beginning. It was hilarious to hear about his character's need to smoke, especially when the lead actress was allergic to tobacco smoke!
