Greetings, DangerKatts! Welcome to lucky Episode XIII of MAKERS, where I speak with artists who make and shape culture! This week, I interview Director/Producer/Writer and all-around force of nature Amanda Raymond!
Amanda Raymond is currently in post-production on the TV series she produced called The Potwins, with Kevin Sorbo, Barry Botswick, Jon Lovitz and Tia Carrere, and her first feature film–which she Directed, Co-Wrote and served as an Executive Producer on–You Are My Home, starring Alyssa Milano and Angel Parker, just premiered on NETFLIX this past holiday season.
Amanda also wrote/directed/produced the award-winning short film From Emily, which was on the Reduced List for Oscar consideration for the 2020 awards, and has been optioned to be turned into a feature film. Amanda is also a novelist, and her first novel, Son of Sherlock, debuted in 2017.
Amanda is a very interesting and hardworking Maker who is vastly experienced in the TV and film industry! Check out our interview below to learn all about it!
Be sure to watch Amanda’s film, You Are My Home, on NETFLIX!
Check out the trailer for You Are My Home below!
BTW, a totally cute picture of me and Amanda at her birthday party a few years ago (I like to be seen with famous people)…
Amanda Raymond is the very definition of a MAKER, and I am happy to call her a friend!
Thanks for tuning in, DangerKatts! Until next time!
