During today’s conversation at The Companion (Amanda Tapping in Conversation: Uplifting Women in Film & TV), Amanda not only talked about her work in front and behind the camera and its challenges.
She also revealed that she’ll be working on the trailer for the pilot of a new sci-fi show. The trailer will be shot on a LED Volume stage, which is a relatively new technology also used in the series The Mandalorian. “…and then, you know, I can show it to The Mandalorian and say, ‘Hire me, please, come on!'” Amanda then said half-jokingly. Well, we’d definitely support that! #Amandalorian!
The other project she’s working on is the movie Home(less) which she will direct. Home(less) by Trembling Vøid Studio explores the experiences of a young trans man who ages out of the foster care system and ends up on the streets of Vancouver. Amanda emphasized how important it is to her and the team to involve the actual homeless community of Downtown Eastside Vancouver in the project to ensure a proper portrayal.
