TriFilm: Tell us about Hornt.
MP: Hornt is the first short I wrote, shot, and edited, going through all the steps on my own, though I had help with the camera work. It’s a comedy about a guy who has trouble understanding dating apps and hatches a long plan to make it work to his benefit.
TriFilm: What role(s) did you play in making the film?
MP: My roles were writing and editing primarily. I set up most of the shots and used all of my equipment but on two of the shooting days, I had my friend Amber Delgado working the camera since she has more technical training than I do and it’s a lot easier than working the camera and recording audio at the same time.
