My post title quotes Dr. Charles Metten, introducing the first episode of a new BYU-TV weekly series that features films and filmmakers from BYU. Theatre and Media Arts professor Sharon Swenson is shown here from a later episode interviewing Scott Christopherson, writer/director of the biographical Only the Pizza Man Knows, prior to the screening of Christopherson's half-hour cinematic essay. Brad Barber and Steven Enfield are producing these wraparound interviews to contextualize the student films and help viewers understand the motives and processes young filmmakers go through.
Happily, BYU-TV makes these (and all their programs, it appears) available for free through high quality streaming video (for about a month following initial broadcast). Three of about a dozen planned episodes have aired. The first, about dramatic narratives, is especially to be recommended, and includes a scripture-based film, Elijah and the Widow of Zarephath (1997)
