Spotlight: Rob Chantigian
1. How did you find out about Living Storm Productions? What made you want to become part of the group?
Alejandro reached out to me and set up a meeting. After talking with him I became interested in the projects that they were working on and decided to work with LSP to achieve our mutual goals of creating captivating movies.
2. What first interested you in film?
The storytelling potential of film as a medium has always had my attention. I enjoy being captivated by the power of a good narrative and have always been interested in creating some of my own.
3. For you, what’s the most exciting part about making a film?
The most exciting part about making a film is from “Action” to “Cut,” seeing all of the work put into a single moment, captured; all the pre-production, preparation, and performance coming together in a spectacular way. As a bonus, the better the cast and crew, the better these moments are.
4. What is your experience in filmmaking?
I began back in high school but everything picked up after I finished my economics degree at UW – Madison. After receiving a certificate in Video and Motion graphics, I started working on commercial projects as they came by. Freelance work filled in the gaps and I’ve had the privilege to work with many talented filmmakers, most of whom are from the Madison and Milwaukee areas.
5. What are some of your filmmaking ambitions?
My number 1 ambition is to make films that captivate the audience, get them to think, to be introspective, and through that process, to have a positive impact on the thinking of the world.
