I have the distinct pleasure of bring you another interview with a member of Team Fletcher, creator Regan Latimer. I’d tell you who she is, but she stole my thunder and copied her description from the web site, so on with the interview.
Nerd: Tell me about yourself.
Regan Latimer: (From the website, cause I’m really not good at talking about myself. 😉 )
Regan Latimer is Executive Producer at Bee Charmer Productions and an independent contractor for individual clients and companies. She has created promotional films for The NOAH Project (Nurturing Orphans of AIDS for Humanity), and The Bharti Charitable Foundation as well as several promotional pieces and commercials for various clients. A post-production and editing specialist, other credits include Emmy award-winning trailers and promo spots for Colorado’s Rocky Mountain PBS and Denver Centre Media.
Multi-talented in both creative and technical disciplines, Regan has served as Fletcher’s video editor and sound designer – as well as writing and directing the show – and has managed all facets of the show’s creation. Regan was also the Director/Producer of the short film Harmony Love Matches for Life Inc., an official selection at the 2008 Great Lakes Independent Film Festival.
What other artistic projects are you involved with outside of Fletcher?
RL: Lol…as above.
N: What made you want to get into film making?
RL: I have always wanted to create, as long as I can remember. Film making was/is the genre that speaks to me, so I did everything possible to make sure it would be a part of my career.
N: What tips do you have for beginning filmmakers?
RL: Don’t wait for opportunities to come to you, create opportunities for yourself. Equipment for filmmakers of all levels is readily available these days, so grab a camera and start shooting! The best thing you can do is get as much experience as possible and take that with you to your next project.
N: If you weren’t making films/web series, what would you want to do for a living?
RL: Hard to say, though I can guarantee you it would be somehow related to the Arts. Failing that, I would be independently wealthy and travel the world.
N: Favorite production/project. (not including BJ Fletcher)
RL: I did a short film called Harmony Love Matches for Life. Great experience, great people…you’ll recognize a couple of Fletcher faces in there. [I have seen it. It is an awesomely funny short. You can check it out here]
N: If you could work with any actor or actress, who would be and why?
RL: I could never narrow that down to just one…but I will say, I would absolutely love to work with Christopher Guest and his troupe of amazing comedy actors and actresses. You’ll remember them from the films Waiting for Guffman and Best In Show. I am a huge a fan of his and that whole team. That would be a dream!
N: Dream project? (other than Fletcher)
RL: I would love to do a full length feature film…it’s an idea that I’ve had packed away for a while now that I would like to finally dust off. Little to say it would definitely appeal to the Fletcher fans.
Quick fire Round:
N: Coke or Pepsi?
N: Cats or dogs?
N: Summer or winter?
RL: Summer (I was never made for winter)
N: Hugs or kisses?
RL: Must have both
N: Fame or fortune?
N: Which is worse: speaking in front of a crowd or writing a paper?
RL: Writing a paper that I would then have to present to a crowd.
N: Time travel to: the past or the future?
N: Celebrity magazine or newspaper?
N: Fave food?
Hero Burger [check them out here]
N: Fave book?
RL: Anything by Sue Grafton…I’m a huge fan of her Kinsey Millhone series.
N: Fave color?
That’s all for this part of my interview. Be sure to check back on Tuesday for Part 2 of my interview with Regan and a new episode of Fletch.
