Two years ago, I wrote a review for Easier With Practice. I posted a link to that review on Twitter
to which I got a response from that movie's DVD distributor, Breaking
Glass Pictures. The distributor has since sent me press releases and
screeners. Last fall, one screener I received was Lost Everything, a crime drama set in beautiful, south Florida.
When I posted a review to that film, I got another inside response. This time, it was from the writer and producer of the movie, Jerry Hamilton Bell (@JerryHBell).
I asked him for an interview and he arranged one with himself and the
film's director, Kim St. Leon, over the phone last month.
The first thing I asked about was the look of the film. St. Leon
informed me that the look is such because, unlike most independent
movies produced in the past five years, which are photographed using
digital video, Lost Everything was photographed using actual 16mm film. St. Leon said she always wanted to do a "film film."
