Interview with Lisa Gormley:
I am so excited to be representing Sara Cooper at this years MyState Student Film Festival. Like Sara I am incredibly passionate about the importance of our industry supporting and encouraging the student voice.
Student films are a wonderful way to express creativity and learn the art of storytelling. Encouraging team work, individuality, acceptance of others and importantly confidence in self and story telling.
I adore the unique storytelling of the individual. Bravery, fun and passion for storytelling.
I'm not sure yet. But I know I will enjoy watching immensely!
Learning. Never stop learning. From all avenues of the industry not just acting. And keep a very strong sense of play! It has to stay fun for it to stay sustainable. Also find things you love doing so you can feed yourself along the way.
I adore Robin Weight (Calamity Jane in Deadwood). She is transformative and her commitment is extremely powerful. I also adore Judy Dench and Emma Thompson. Benedict Cumberbatch and Anthony Hopkins are two of my fav males. Both do so much research and have ultimate compassion for the characters they are portraying.
Not possible to answer that! There are so many and for many different reasons. A few of them are Love Actually, Its a Wonderful Life, French Kiss, The Labyrinth.
The Muppets Christmas Carol!!! Especially at christmas. I adore Jim Henson. The Labyrinth. Anything that inspires the Heros Journey. Explore all types of genres!
