Filmmaker Jennifer Phang Skypes in for Q & A with Veerendra Prasad's FTVM 210
Filmmaker Jennifer Phang skyped in for a Q& A during V. Prasad's FTVM 210: Introduction to Screenwriting class. Students read Phang's screenplay for the movie Advantageous and watched the short film upon which the feature-length film was based. Phang answered questions about the process of developing the screenplay and realizing the feature film on a small budget.
Advantageous, a dystopian film that Wired's Jordan Crucchiola claims "is just Phang’s latest attempt to be a part of the solution she so deeply hopes for, to raise our awareness of the issues she views as most pressing in our world," won a Special Jury Prize at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival and was nominated for the John Cassavetes Award at the 2016 Independent Spirit Awards.
