CFDb Interviews Lisa Arnold ~ Actress/Director/Producer/Writer = > When and how did you first get involved in the film industry? After years of being on stage in regional productions and hosting a ”live” TV show, I began working in film in 1998 both as an actress and behind the camera. I thought that the medium would be too slow for me since I was used to the rush of a ”live” performance, but I fell in love with the process of film making. I couldn’t get enough of it. After working for several years though, I was discouraged at the scripts that I was getting and began to write solely out of frustration. I have to say it is such a great joy to create...

CFDb Interviews Gib Gerard ~ Actor/Producer = > When and how did you first get involved in the filmmaking industry? I’ve pretty much been involved since birth, with a brief hiatus. My parents are both actors, so I grew up on sets. I, however NEVER wanted to be in this business. But, after college, nothing else seemed even remotely as appealing as making movies, so I went with what I knew, but I’ve always loved movies, and loved being a part of the process even from birth. In fact, my mom was doing a series (Greatest American Hero) when I was born. The day she went into labor she was scheduled to shoot, but obviously she couldn’t. So, she... Continue Reading ›››
