In this episode, actor and filmmaker Kyle Clements discusses his part in Ender’s Game and talks about making Silo, the short film that won this year’s Louisiana Film Prize and Crosscut Editing Award. Kyle wrote, directed, produced, co-edited, and starred in the short, so he was the driving force in its creation. As Kyle explains in the interview, Silo was a story that grew from a tragedy that his friend experienced.
Silo is a short that is not afraid to ask the big questions, and we discuss some of those questions on the show. We also talk about The Disposable Hero Project, Kyle’s outreach to wounded veterans, and how that led to Humid, his current production company.
