In part 1 of our interview with Kaitlynn we discussed her favorite projects, the origin of her production company name, and more. What else did we discuss in our time together? Read on…
G: Between TV and movie, which do you enjoy writing more? How so?
K: I like TV much more, because I created my own universe there (Eastwick) and can expand on it and come back after some time and do more in and around it. It’s like visiting an old friend. I am weird.
G: Just out of curiosity, do you ever think of doing a film with a male-oriented cast, maybe on some sort of special occasion like 5 years anniversary of you as a member of HTG? Or that thought has never crossed your mind?
K: No, I am a sexist. (smiley face)
G: Well, there’s the answer to yo’all male talents out there. Stop harassing her or her assistants. I remember this question (or similar question) when you interviewed me long time ago. If you can change some aspect of HTG, what would you change or what would you add?
K: More women? Bringing Cassy back? Making people add actors decently into the database so my hours of updating and replacing shit aren’t wasted? That’s probably it.
G: If your “Cassy” stands for Casey Affleck, you got your wish. Any sneak peek of your upcoming project?
K: It’s called Amnesia and will feature Emma Watson as the female lead. I won’t reveal more.
G: I hope I don’t get Amnesia for trying to find out more. You know, get caught and my memory is gone and so on… okay, I will just stop here in case you really know a spell that can knock my memory off. Moving on, as a fast rising production company in HTG, you have won a fair share of awards in the last Yoda and Sully awards. Did you expect winning that much when you are pretty much a freshman of the industry?
K: I expected to get some Sullys, yes, despite Tim being a b**** and producing shows that are far too good. But I didn’t really expect Yodas. Though I wanted them ^^.
G: What is your target in the upcoming Yoda and Sully awards?
K: I’d love to get one or two Sully’s for Eastwick again. And maybe a Yoda for The Widow.
G: Any particular category you think they (Eastick and The Widow) have a good chance to win?
K: It’s more that i want them to win. They are dear to my heart.
G: In your opinion, which award is the “ultimate award” for you as a producer as in it is the one you would be really proud of when you finally win it (not necessarily in the upcoming award, more like your final target sort of deal)? Why?
K: It’s actually not an award, but when I read that the critics liked something. That’s the best thing for me as a producer.
G: Just stay clear of The G, that dude a giant dbag when it comes to the critics’ circle. Which studio do you enjoy working with the most?
K: I love working with Teufel and Tim. Both are extremely impressive persons I learned to really like and rely on. I also enjoyed working with Lucian, because he was quite serious about it. It’s actually hard not to name all of them (except a certain someone I have a beef with).
And then Kaitlynn was pulled away by her assistant for an important meeting. Yeah right, like there’s any meeting in Hollywood that is not important. Well, that will be the end of the interview, see you next time!
