In this episode, I talk with Erin Beckloff and Andrew Quinn, co-directors of the new film Pressing On. They started this process several years ago, which finally culminated in its debut at Hatch Show Print this past May.
Erin’s background in letterpress and Andrew’s team at Bayonet Media team up to make a fantastic film, and it’s even more fun to hear some of their behind-the-scenes stories.
1:45 — How this all began. 9:40 — Kickstarter to make the film. 11:30 — Finding people for the film. 18:15 — Interview process. 24:45 — Deciding how to present letterpress to the viewer. 32:55 — What is the overarching message that you want a viewer to take away? 37:30 — Independent filmmaking. 41:02 — Click “save” on the final version.
