With After America, Jake Yuzna set out to rethink how we make independent films.
Jake Yuzna talks about his Creative Capital Project, After America, and the unique workshop practice to collaborate with the actors who play versions of themselves.
If we’re going to be able to reflect our experiences in America and in our world now, we’re going to need a different language that can articulate what we know.
A big focus for me with the film was trying to discover how can we make independent films differently. After experiencing graduate training in Hollywood, and the film industry in Los Angeles in general, I saw first-hand a lot of the exploitative practices baked into so much of how American films are made. I kept finding myself asking, “why do we make films this way?”
