This week I decided to interview Michelle Morte……again. I’ve interviewed her before but Michelle and I are people who like to be very active and brainstorm new projects even while updating and making progress on old ones. This interview serves as an update to those projects and Michelle as a person.
Michelle’s been hard at work on current project “Reflections”, a short film touching on various film elements like internal monologue, dramatic black & white shots, and the different places people end up in life. I won’t say too much about the film but my good friend Andy and I will be scoring it as it enters the post-production stages. We’ve already recorded a rough version during a brainstorming session where we were very happy with the direction it took. Think Pink Floyd meets singer-songwriter piano meets modern cinema music trends.
As far as new stuff from her, she has been writing more for future projects, so she gave me the inside scoop. She likes making films that deal a lot with the inner workings of the mind, so this new idea is a psychological thriller-esque story revolving around a stalker. Excited to eventually see that project come into fruition. As for other side updates, she has said that she likes doing shorter projects before, so she has agreed to eventually help my band, Plastic Castle, make a music video. She also recently settled on a logo for her film production endeavors.
An update on Michelle’s personal life, Michelle’s grandmother is currently living at her house. She says this can be both interesting and frustrating because her grandmother, like her mother, is very traditional and conservative. Lastly, Michelle has been going back through the past decade’s worth of music she “missed”. She is currently listening to stuff along the lines of the Foo Fighters, Red Hot Chili Peppers and All Time Low.
