FOR ELLEN director So Yong Kim

“Beautifully observed and impeccably executed!” So says Kenneth Turan of the LA Times and our Mike McNamara agrees. Mac sat down with FOR ELLEN director So Yong Kim to discuss her new feature FOR ELLEN, currently available for your viewing pleasure nationwide. Kim discusses her sterling cast headed by Paul Dano and Jon Heder, how she managed to pull together financing for this low budget indie and perhaps the most compelling question of the interview: What do you do when your lead actor (that’s Paul Dano) falls deathly ill and has to be rushed to the hospital for a week?!? All of that and more in this week’s FILMMAKER FOCUS.
