Written by Sapna Gandhi, We Make Movies did an interview with Tyler C. Peterson on his upcoming short film, Copper & Wool. An expert can be read here:
WMM: What compelled you to make this film? What was the impetus?
TCP: Copper & Wool is a film conceptualized and born by leaning into our filmmaking restrictions. After watching Alex Lehman and Mark Duplass’ Blue Jay (2016), Amanda Ferrarese and I were inspired to use her UFVF/Kodak Cinematography grant to put towards a 16mm short film that took place in one location with two wildly different characters and a skeleton crew. In the spirit of mumblecore, I decided to keep the film scriptless and cast two strong improvisation actors with writing backgrounds.
