Tell me a bit about yourself and your role with CTRL.
My name is Alexandra Harris – I’m an actor from Oklahoma currently living in LosAngeles. I both acted in and helped write CTRL alongside Brent Ryan Green for the 48hr film competition.
How would you describe CTRL to people?
“It’s an interesting piece that leaves room for the audience to interpret the underlying circumstances in which we find our lead character.”It’s an interesting piece that leaves room for the audience to interpret the underlying circumstances in which we find our lead character. There’s no defined ‘good guys’ and ‘bad guys’ -the film is just a small segment of a much bigger picture.
What was the most challenging aspect you had in the production?
Aside from the obvious difficulty of creating a film within 48 hours – I found that being tethered to wires while filming underwater, and attempting to give a good performance to be quite a challenge! Ha!
What was the best part about filming in Oklahoma?
I love filming in Oklahoma! The landscape and locations available give film makers so many options to create a unique environment for their films. I’ve also found that Oklahoma crews and talent are absolutely top notch.
What were some particular scenes that were enjoyable to film?
Visually the drone shots are fantastic. I also loved the shots we were able to capture underwater – it was a first for me, and I think they turned out really beautifully.
What are your thoughts on the deadCENTER Film Festival?
DeadCenter is fantastic. It’s an excellent festival that brings in people from all over the world to Oklahoma. It does a great job of showcasing what Oklahoma has to offer while showing some truly amazing content.
