In this episode of ‘Always Be Creating,’ Jake Lipman and Maria Maloney interview Tara Gadomski, a Sundance Knight Fellow, an actor, director, writer and BBC radio producer.
When the COVID-19 crisis struck, a number of Tara’s bookings were delayed or cancelled. So she found inspiration via the BBC’s Opportunities page, https://www.bbc.co.uk/writersroom/opportunities, in a call for shorts shot and set on Zoom. She wrote, “I See You Now,” a short about a father and daughter who struggle to connect. While her piece was not selected for further development by the BBC, Tara decided to go ahead and cast, direct, edit, and produce the short film on her own. It is making the rounds in several online film festivals, winning the “Best Coronavirus Diary Film Film” at the Brighton Rocks Festival.
Following this positive experience, Tara directed and produced a “quarantine teaser” for her full-length film, “The Natural Mother.” Listen to this episode to learn more about how she channels inspiration into action.
