Campbell Graham: Director, Anyone You Want

February 16, 2013

campbell1Q: Tell us a little about the origins of ANYONE YOU WANT, from concept to financing.

ANYONE YOU WANT is a romance about a young businessman in Sydney who befriends a troubled homeless girl and is drawn into her secret fantasy world. I wrote it in a month and it was financed by me, my two brothers and my ex-girlfriend!

2Q: ANYONE YOU WANT is having its World Premiere at Cinequest on March 3rd [2010].  How have you been enjoying the festival so far, and do you plan to bring the film to any other festivals?

It’s the best film festival I’ve ever attended. So welcoming…and the films are of a very high standard.

3Q: What was your best and/or worst experience while making ANYONE YOU WANT?

The worst experience was having to do so many roles because of the low budget – getting up at 4am to iron the actors’ clothes, for example. There have been many best experiences and seeing something you’ve worked so hard on emerge is the biggest.

4Q: Festival audiences often have to make hard decisions about what to see, and the catalog descriptions sometimes run together. In your own words, why should people see your film?

The film is upbeat and touching and funny. It’s about real peoples’ problems but told through fantasy. It’s quite snappy too – it entertains and then lets you go!

5Q: The current market for independent films is fractured, to put it lightly, and existing distribution models grow more ineffective with each passing moment. What are your hopes or plans for distribution?

I’d hope to get a small scale distibution in cinemas and then through netflix etc. Fingers crossed – it’s not easy these days!
