Mark those calendars, because we’ve got great SXSW news. We’re excited to announce that Revelator’s Head of Production, Chris Ohlson, will be a 2015 South by Southwest Film Mentor. SXSW Mentor Sessions are 10-minute, one-on-one interactions that provide a direct connection to experienced filmmakers and industry leaders, during the SXSW Film Conference & Festival, March 13th-21st, in Austin, Texas.
Chris brings a unique perspective to the mentoring sessions, as he’ll be able to share the viewpoint of a producer, working in both the commercial video production and independent film worlds. If you ask him, he’ll share his experiences from a career in production, as well as his two most recent projects, THANK YOU A LOT (directed by Revelator’s own, Matt Muir), and the soon-to-be-released KUMIKO THE TREASURE HUNTER.
“I’m a big believer in mentoring and sharing knowledge…and I want to help people on their path to making better films,” Chris said. “I’ve had some tremendous assistance finding my way on the incredibly tricky and somewhat daunting path of making movies. I’ve had wonderful advisors, mentors, and experiences as part of the Sundance Institute and IFP (Independent Filmmaker Project) and I want to do what I can to return the favor.”
The SXSW Film Conference & Festival champions the vitality, innovation and opportunity that drive entertainment and media, and boldly tackles the evolution of all aspects of “film” today, down to its very definition. Chris is incredibly excited to return to SXSW for the 7th time — if you’re attending SXSW 2015, you should stop by and say hello! And don’t forget…in the meantime you can watch Chris accept his Piaget Producers Award at the Independent Spirit Awards, when they air live, Saturday, February 21 on IFC!
