A very quick chat with Sybil about her work:
What are you doing right now?
Working on the second draft of a script of my next short, entitled “The Equestrian”.
How do you see your own work?
Up to now I’ve been interested by the dark in relationships – emotions. As well as the tension that underlies those things left unsaid.
How relevant is your work today to be a part of LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender) or queer art work?
It’s the story of a married man who falls in love with a male co-worker.
How do you fund your films?
How do you publicise or market your work?
By mounting a fierce festival campaign, along with creating a website, pursuing press coverage, and using social media (although I’ve by no means exploited this fully).
Thank you Sybil and best wishes from GFEST.
