David Spies & Phil Seneker are working together to produce a short film “A Musing”. They are using Kickstarter to fund their project. We explore how that is going, & what they have learned. David Spies has completed several screenplays that are each quite different in genre. He wrote the first draft of “A Musing” recently & registered with the WGA nine days later. David felt he had a screenplay definitely worthy of being produced so began to seek out a cinematographer to partner with. After a local search for cinematographers in the Seattle area, David connected with Phil Seneker & from that day on there was no turning back. This will be David's first professional short film production as a writer & director. Phil Seneker is a filmmaker, producer, screenwriter & director of photography.  Phil began his career in the film & video industry after studying acting. Phil started his production company in 1993 to create videos for corporate clients Phil spent most of the ‘90’s & ‘00’s creating corporate videos, building his company, working on features, shorts, commercials & starting a family.  He shot his first short film in 1998 entitled RATS! which went on to screen at 7 festivals around the world & won 3 awards including Best Dark Comedy.  In 2003, Phil was accepted to the UCLA Online Professional Screenwriting Program & he completed two feature length screenplays while attending. His recent short screenplay was selected as a finalist in the Seattle Film School's Great American Short Screenplay Competition.   Phil is currently producing a feature length documentary, “Sisters Choice”, which is about two sisters & their choices when it comes to battling cancer.  Phil says production will be complete in October and the film completed in early 2011.   Stay tuned to Rex Sikes' Movie Beat for other great archived interviews, cast and crew listings, events, festivals, premieres, and more at http://www.rexsikes.com
