Six questions for Kristi Woodard

Kristi Woodard is an aspiring director.

What was your most recent job in the movie industry, or what are you working on now?

My most recent job was as a location scout for indie filmmaker Glen Grefe. I found locations for him to shoot his promo trailer for "The Hurting Kind."

I'm not working on anything right now. Someone … please … HIRE ME!!!! :)

What's the coolest part about your job?

I prefer to work behind the scenes so the coolest part of the job is meeting other industry people … actors, crew members and other pros and picking their brains. And of course seeing the scenes set-up, shot and broken down.

What is your main career goal?

To direct music videos and possible feature films or documentaries. But I'd settle for producing for MTV if they'll have me :) I honestly just want to tell great stories through film/video. I plan to do that whether I make it big or not.

What single experience has proved most valuable?

I believe every experience on a set is valuable. Even if you're just an extra, it gives you a chance to meet new people, get the latest about future jobs ... Any experience on a set should be a resume-builder and a chance to learn … whether you're an aspiring actor or director.

In what movie or show can we see your work? Highlight a scene you like.

I only did background work for "Beyond a Reasonable Doubt" (the newsroom scene). I personally hate being on camera but I needed some extra money! I have credits as crew for both "Welcome Home Roscoe Jenkins" and The Hurting Kind, as well as BPCC's movie currently filming this summer.

What's your favorite movie of all time and why? (You must choose one.)

Honestly, it's "Grease." I loved musicals and as a child (and even now as an adult), anytime I would get sick (or was just bored at home), I'd watch old musicals like "Mary Poppins" and "Oliver." Anytime "Grease" is on, I have to watch it ... It's sad really, but I love anything that takes me away from my reality (guess that's why I love cartoons too). I'd love to produce or write a musical one day.
