Pamela Perry Goulardt (EXCLUSIVE) Interview

What has been the greatest difficulty you faced in producing your project?

It’s been a gradual step-by-step process. It is a short film and I have experienced no real difficulty. So far, it has been a joy.

-Do you think the film industry today has been damaged by political correctness?

I don’t think anything can damage the core of the film industry, it’s a force of nature. It may have ups and downs, but like the Sun, it will rise in the morning.

-What was the greatest source of inspiration for creating your project?

Apprentice, like Mickey Mouse in Fantasia. I have studied the I Ching, Tarot, Mystery School, Mythology, the Secrets of the Shamans, Folklore, Archetypal Fairy Tales, and Sacred Geometry, all of which have led me to the Genre of the Fairy Tale. My stories have always possessed a mystical undertone but The
Girl Made of Earth and Water is my first true Fairy Tale. Using the tools of fantastical enchantment and the language of metaphors, the viewer (child or adult) is introduced to contemplating their thoughts, which aids in finding meaning in their lives, a greater sense of self, and how they fit into the world.
It extracts the mind from the mob mind.

-If you could ask a question to a great director from the past, who would you like to talk to and what would you ask them?

At this moment, although I would love to speak with Frederico Feliini or Ingmar Bergman, I have to go with a man still walking among us – Alejandro Jodorowsky. Watching the opening scene of El Topo, with Jodorowsky, dressed in black leather on a white horse, walking across the desert, to in your face, full screen, his ten-year-old naked son burying the portrait of his mother in the sand – I was knocked out!
But, I have always been especially inspired by his Graphic Novel illustrated by Artist Mobius, The Incal.
The great Taiki Waititi is currently adapting The Incal and will direct it for the big screen. I can’t wait to see it!

-What do you think of the Wild Filmmaker platform?

The Wild Filmmaker is a gift to the Indie Film Industry. Indie films are essential for creatives to explore, innovate, and take risks. Wild Filmmaker champions those efforts that benefit the mainstream Industry in the process
