Interview with director CJ Colando (JAKE & JULIA)

Matthew Toffolo's Summary

JAKE & JULIA was the winner of BEST PERFORMANCES at the January 2018 Comedy FEEDBACK Film Festival in Toronto.

Matthew Toffolo: What motivated you to make this film?

CJ Colando: There was no motivation in the beginning; I wrote it quite passively as an exercise in short-form comedy, and thought that would be the end of it. Then I sent it around to industry friends, and enough of them suggested we make it. When it comes to the creative opinions of people more successful than me, I’m often a soft, easily-persuaded worm.

2. From the idea to the finished product, how long did it take for you to make this short?

About a year. I sat on the script for about 6 months, and finally got enough kicks in the ass to make it, which took another 6 months.

3. How would you describe your short film in two words!?
