"Welcome to another exciting episode of the "In Love with the Process Podcast" with your host, Mike Pecci! In today's episode, we dive into the fascinating world of indie filmmaking with the creative minds behind the upcoming mind-bending comedy film, "Me, Myself and the Void."
"EoM Senior Interviewer Thomas Manning recently interviewed director Tim Hautekiet and producer Ryan Blewett from Echobend Pictures about their film Me, Myself, and the Void. The duo talks about the creative process on their first feature film and bringing together a cast that includes Jack De Sena and Kelly Marie Tran."
"On this year’s program, Labadessa says: “Indie Cinema has always been able to create a conversation around themes often left behind by the studio. More than ever those conversations become relevant. From mental health to climate change to isolation to social justice, this year’s lineup couldn’t be more thought provoking.."
"I had the opportunity to connect with the director and a producer of the highly anticipated dark comedy Me, Myself, & The Void that recently premiered at the Dances with Films Festival in Los Angeles on July 1st. Director/writer/producer Tim Hautekiet was joined by one of his co-producers and colleagues, Ryan Blewett, to discuss their personal connection to the story, some of the film’s deeper meanings, and their excitement to share the project with wider audiences."
"The film captivated audiences with its unique storytelling approach, as well as it’s fun and memorable performances by the talented cast, including Jack De Sena (Avatar: The Last Airbender) and Kelly Marie Tran (Star Wars, Raya & The Last Dragon). Set against the backdrop of a surreal and mysterious world that exists outside of time and space”Me, Myself, & The Void” explores the complexities of identity and the human psyche."
"Searching director Aneesh Chaganty has selected five burgeoning filmmakers who will get a chance to see their short films come to life on the big screen via his YouTube Space Director’s Lab. Participants are Sarah Rotella and Adriana DiLonardo from Unsolicited Project, Tony E. Valenzuela from BlackBoxTV, Shae-Lee Shackleford from SketchShe, Tim Hautekiet from TimH Films, and Mikey Murphy."
"The Sundance Institute and YouTube are looking for their next class of talented young creators. The two companies have opened up submissions for the 2018 New Voices Lab, which will offer workshops, meetings, residencies, and other tools to a select group of up-and-comers. In addition, the Lab’s 2017 fellows have been announced..."
"New Form Digital has released eight scripted short-form pilots from YouTube creators and other independent talent, with the digital studio angling to produce them as full series for distribution partners. It’s the third wave of pilots from New Form Digital — whose backers include Brian Grazer, Ron Howard and Discovery Communications — since the start-up was formed in 2014."
"In June, New Form Digital — the online studio from Discovery Communications, Brian Grazer and Ron Howard — asked 14 YouTubers to produce short films based on the theme of curiosity, and the videos that premiere today showcase just how creators can turn the same resources into very different projects, which range from a sci-fi comedy about an intergalactic beauty pageant to a drama following a man running from a Mexican drug cartel. "
"Just as he breaks 100,000 subscribers, TenEighty talks to Tim Hautekiet about Project: Library, maintaining integrity on YouTube, and his plans to move to California. Tim Hautekiet has always been a bit of a dark horse within the YouTube community. He’s collaborated regularly with YouTubers on theirs and his own projects, in front of the camera and behind the scenes. His own videos have developed from simple, well-thought-out vlogs, to fast-paced sketches, to the dizzying heights of his recent action/comedy series Project: Library. "
"With a rejected pitch in LA last year, wildly escalating costs, and a filming schedule busier and more strenuous than anything a UK YouTube project has ever attempted before, Project: Library is the showpiece of talented young filmmakers that's been long overdue. I was lucky enough to be on set as an extra for one night of shooting."
