We recently had the pleasure of talking with filmmaker Nathan Honnold, whose film, Getting Old, is showing at this year’s Indie Grits Festival.
1. What is your connection to the South?
My connection to the South began 18 years ago when I moved to Atlanta from Miami. I am a graduate of Georgia State University where I studied Film and Video Production until I graduated in 2010. My wife Haley and I still live in Metro Atlanta and I am a member of the Local 600 Atlanta Cinematographers union.
2. What was your muse for this film?
My muse for this film was the work of Harmony Korine.
3. What was your first film?
My first film was titled Until Dust and it was shot completely on Super8 negative film.
4. Did anything interesting or funny happen on set during the shooting?
This film, Getting Old, was a blast to make. Filming in Oakland Cemetery with Daniel Scoggins, “Cousin Dan,” was certainly a funny highlight to the shoot.
5. If you’ve been to Indie Grits before, what’s your favorite memory?
This will be Haley and my first trip to Indie Grits, and we are very excited to be part of the festival.
