Nate Barlow

What is your name, company name, and URL?

Nate Barlow, Lowbar Productions

What is your specialty: filmmaking or screenwriting? If filmmaking, which aspects?

Both! But of late I’ve mostly been screenwriting. As a filmmaker I am a director, producer, and actor.

Wow, that's a lot of hyphenates! What are you currently working on?

A Western biopic

Cool! Who do you consider your mentor and why?

Leslie Belzberg. I was her assistant and she still is a sounding board for me.

Why do you think the horror/sci-fi genres have such a large following?

They tap into visceral emotions and take us to other worlds.

What do you love most about this business?

The combination of creativity, technology, and business.

That is so very true! What do you dislike most about this business?

It’s so difficult to get any film made, we never get to make as many as we like.

I hear ya! It is frustrating. What career accomplishment are you most proud of?

Having the opportunity to see myself on the Chinese Theatre screen, and having my first film distributed.

I love that! Any advice you'd like to give to newbies?

Always keep plugging away!

Yes! Anything else you'd like to say?

Enjoy the ride!

I agree! Thank you Nate! It was great chatting!
