Interview with Filmmaker Matt Provenzano (EDGAR’S INVENTION)

Matthew Toffolo's Summary

EDGAR’S INVENTION played to rave reviews at the June 2018 Young Filmmakers FEEDBACK Film Festival in Toronto.

Matthew Toffolo: What motivated you to make this film?

Matt Provenzano: I was motivated to make this film to honor the memory of the man who invented water balloons, Edgar Ellington. Inventors like Steve Jobs and Thomas Edison are household names, but no one knows Ellington. I’m not sure if my interpretation of the man was accurate, but as long as I can stir up an interest in an inventor who has had a profound impact on rubber sacks of water, I’ve done my job right.

2. From the idea to the finished product, how long did it take for you to make this short?

The entire film took about a month to complete. The script was written in a day, casting took a week, filming took three days, editing took another week.
