Laff 2017 Women Directors: Meet Elizabeth Rohrbaugh— “Becks”

13 June 2017 10:01 AM, PDT | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

Becks

Elizabeth Rohrbaugh is writer and director based in NYC. Her documentary, “The Perfect Victim,” was on the PBS series “America Reframed” after premiering at the Hot Springs International Film Festival. The film won a Telly Award and was nominated for a Silver Gavel Award. Rohrbaugh previously worked as a writer and director at MTV, where she won an Emmy Award and multiple Ctam Awards.

Becks” will premiere at the 2017 La Film Festival on June 15. The film is co-directed by Daniel Powell.

W&H: Describe the film for us in your own words.

ER: “Becks” is the story of an aimless singer-songwriter who moves back in with her mom, a former nun, after her cross-country move to be with her long-distance girlfriend ends in disaster. After weeks of moping, Becks begins exploring her hometown of St. Louis in a half-baked attempt to put her life back together.

She begins singing and playing music at her friend’s bar where she finds catharsis in playing her breakup music. She meets and befriends the wife of the guy who outed her at prom and starts giving her guitar lessons.

As she struggles to put the pieces of her life together she learns to look at her past from a new perspective and works to let go of co-dependent relationships.

W&H: What drew you to this story?

ER: This story is loosely inspired by a very good friend of mine, Alyssa Robbins, whose music is used throughout the film. She is a singer-songwriter and teacher who was going through a difficult breakup during a time that I was back in my hometown of St. Louis.

She found herself back home with her mom and began touring through the Midwest performing her music at local bars and clubs. She came through St. Louis and played at a tiny retro 24-hour diner on a Sunday night and the show was bizarre and beautiful, and filled with an odd but enthusiastic crowd.

The cathartic and honest nature of her performance even left the owner — a gruff man likely in his mid 70s — in tears as he reflected on his relationship with his own daughter. I left that evening feeling like I had lived a scene from a movie, and became drawn in as I reflected on my own place in life.

Despite the fact that from an outside perspective it would seem that Alyssa and I lived very different lives, we were actually in the exact same place — too old to not have our shit together and too young to be having our respective midlife crises.

Dan Powell and I had been working to collaborate on a feature narrative together and were throwing ideas around when I told him about this experience. We became very inspired by the idea of using a real person as the basis for a character — finding a way to practically incorporate her music, and creating a modern musical.

W&H: What do you want people to think about when they are leaving the theater?

ER: I would like for the audience to leave the theater feeling inspired and moved to make an active change in their lives. I know — that’s a tall order.

I hope that people will love the music and the incredible performances from Lena Hall, Mena Suvari, Christine Lahti, and Dan Fogler, and will feel touched by the film’s ending.

I hope that the characters feel like real to life, complex, and fully formed people. I would like to send the message that people are messy and imperfect beings, and that nobody really has it figured out.

W&H: What was the biggest challenge in making the film?

ER: Honestly, as far as production goes I had a glorious, amazing, life-changing experience. I had so much fun and Dan and I work splendidly together. It was my first time co-directing and it was wonderful. The entire shoot came together very quickly and having two directors allowed us to give attention to details that could have otherwise gone ignored had we not had the bandwidth.

Finding our key location was very difficult as we needed to be able to find a spot in the NYC area that could pass for suburban St. Louis and had no time and no money. Ultimately I found a place on Airbnb that was perfect and that we could afford.

For me personally, I was in the middle of moving two children and a household from St. Louis to Brooklyn and basically had to ignore living in squalor out of boxes for a couple of months. My parents and husband were incredibly supportive taking me off mom-duty entirely during prep and shooting.

W&H: How did you get your film funded? Share some insights into how you got the film made.

ER: Our funding came from Dan and my’s production companies, Irony Point and Outer Borough Pictures respectively, along with an investment from Tony Hernandez at Jax Media. Jax also provided us with all of our office space for pre-production and production.

We have a stellar beast of a producer, Alex Bach, who was masterful at making this film happen. I still don’t know quite how she pulled it off with our budget.

Dan and I have also been working in the industry for a decade each and called in all of the favors we had waiting for us.

W&H: What does it mean for you to have your film play at Laff?

ER: I am thrilled and excited and also a nervous wreck! But that is just who I am. I actually love observing an audience watch my work to gauge their reactions to lines, jokes, emotional scenes, and so forth.

To be able to premiere our first feature at one of the top indie film festivals in the country is a dream for me — probably in the way that some people dream about their wedding. I fantasize about film festivals.

W&H: What’s the best and worst advice you’ve received?

ER: The worst advice I have received — I will not mention who gave it — is that in a relationship only one person can have a focused career, particularly when kids come around. I very briefly followed that advice and was very depressed and unfulfilled. I have since discovered that my professional passions are a large part of my relationship and my family as a whole, and have become a much happier person as a result.

The best advice I have received, from my husband, was to start career and life coaching, which I have done with Betsy Capes at Capes Coaching. It has helped me remove the clutter of insecurity and distraction and helped me focus on getting what I want. It has been a phenomenal way to find my career path.

W&H: What advice do you have for other female directors?

ER: My advice is generic but true, which is that this is quite hard and takes a long time. Do this if you love it and if you love it then do it all the way. Make stuff as much as you can. Save up and make a short. But make sure that the script is on point and the casting is the best that it possibly can be — that you have prepared everything.

Hire the best people you can possibly afford, trust them to be professionals, and know what they are talking about. Develop friendships with talented people who you can collaborate with for years to come. Look at your peers — these are the people you will come up with so begin working together now. Develop a shorthand. And trust your vision above all else.

W&H: Name your favorite woman-directed film and why.

ER: “Slums of Beverly Hills” by Tamara Jenkins. I haven’t seen it for years and have no idea if it holds up. “The Savages” is probably technically a better movie as I think her style became more nuanced and sophisticated, but I still love “Slums” more.

I was shown her shorts at Nyu in a film class and was immediately obsessed. She spoke the female coming-of-age language in such a fresh and different way and I adored it. I love Kevin Corrigan as the romantic interest in “Slums” and Natasha Lyonne is amazing.

After I saw the shorts I requested an interview with her for a class. She let me come to her apartment and interview her, which devolved into me professing my admiration and asking if I could work for her for free. She politely declined.

W&H: There have been significant conversations over the last couple of years about increasing the amount of opportunities for women directors yet the numbers have not increased. Are you optimistic about the possibilities for change? Share any thoughts you might have on this topic.

ER: I deeply hope that more female filmmakers are recognized by the film community. From my time as a film student at Nyu I have always been aware that this is a male-driven industry and it takes chutzpah to persist in a field where you may not always be taken seriously.

That said, I have had tremendous mentors, male and female, who have supported me wholeheartedly throughout my career. I love working with female crew members on set and feel that it lends itself to a very collaborative process.

When we wrapped “Becks” I said that my life goal is just to get to do this again and again and again. I can only hope that the work resonates with a wide audience because that will ultimately prove our worth.

Unfortunately, getting a movie made is difficult and there is no rule book. I think we need to just keep pushing, and making stuff and moving forward. I’m writing another screenplay right now and will crawl through the mud to get it made.

Laff 2017 Women Directors: Meet Elizabeth Rohrbaugh— “Becks” was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story. »

Film Review: ‘Infinity Baby’

12 April 2017 1:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

There are filmmakers who could stand to lighten up a little, and others you wish would bulk up, their work being so insubstantial it threatens to blow away in a strong breeze. Austin-based Bob Byington has spent a decade now directing quirky indie comedies whose offbeat concepts and air of slacker snark almost invariably promise more than they end up delivering. Though not as utterly no-there-there as his last feature, “7 Chinese Brothers,” the new “Infinity Baby” (this time scripted by Onur Tukel rather than the director) follows the same pattern of starting out with a few good ideas, then ending before any of them have been properly developed, leaving both the vague satirical gist and wayward narrative dissipating before we’ve gotten a handle on either.

This absurdist doodle has some bright performance moments from name actors, as well as a few other positive attributes. But as another in-joke whose »

This is no festive prank, these movies are hilarious.

Let’s face it, the world is a wreck. Every day things look bleaker than they did the day before. It’s gotten to the point where, if you can’t learn to laugh at our misery, you’re finished. If you need some help figuring out how to find humor in even the worst bits of the human experience, dark comedies work, Netflix has them, and we’ve made a list of the good ones. Click on the films’ titles to be taken to their Netflix pages.

Pick of the Month: This Must Be the Place (2011)

I can’t think of another movie in recent times that’s been so good and gotten so little love and attention in return. Maybe that’s because the concept of a former 80s glam rocker who still wears his makeup (Sean Penn) tracking down the Nazi concentration camp guard who »

Memo to Distributors: Buy These SXSW 2017 Movies

18 March 2017 7:43 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Most Beautiful Island

A short, stressful, and utterly spellbinding debut that transforms the immigrant experience into the stuff of an early Polanski psychodrama, “Most Beautiful Island” was a worthy winner of the SXSW Grand Jury Prize for best narrative feature, and might prove to be a breakthrough moment for a major new talent: Spanish actress Ana Asensio not only wrote, directed, and produced this fraught metropolitan thriller, she also appears in just about every frame.

It would be criminal to reveal too much about what happens to her character, a Manhattan immigrant who’s struggling to make a life for herself in the big city and in for the longest night of her life, but it’s thrilling to watch the anxiety of neo-realism as it slowly bleeds into something that resembles the suspense of the orgy sequence from “Eyes Wide Shut.” Creating a lucid sense of reality only so »

Film Review: ‘Stray Bullets’

10 February 2017 1:34 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Major allowances would normally be made for any movie made by a 16-year-old. But in the case of “Stray Bullets,” a polished first feature from teenager Jack Fessenden, fairly minor ones will suffice. Though this suspense drama about two small-town youths who run afoul of fleeing big-city criminals feels a couple story beats short of a satisfying whole, it’s admirably well-crafted within its mostly savvy limitations. The film opens Feb. 10 in 11 U.S. cities.

Fessenden is the son of actor-turned-busy indie producer and sometime writer/director Larry Fessenden (“The Last Winter,” “Wendigo”), who not only plays an onscreen role here but serves as Dp. It’s also dad’s connections that doubtless coaxed a number of veteran performers he’s worked with in the past to join the project, and none of them treat this assignment as a favor-among-friends lark.

Ash (Asa Spurlock) and Connor (the junior Fessenden) are »

What happens when two friends steal concert tickets and drugs from a dealer? Tony Revolori and Josh Peck tell us the outcome in the new trailer for their upcoming Netflix comedy, “Take the 10.”
