Ted Tremper: Comedian Improvisational Filmmaker (x180-079)

This week on the show we have another Vimeo Film Festival award winner. This time it’s the winner for the 2010 Best Original Series: Ted Tremper (that’s the filmmaker, not the series). Ted won for his series “Break-ups”. This was a film series that consisted of shorts that were 100% improvised. That’s right. Absolutely no script. One of the things I love about what Ted is doing is that he is crafting award-worthy films, films that are also getting him the attention of the TV industry, using minimal equipment–a 5D Mark II and some audio gear mainly. He’s a testament to what you can do with great ideas, great casting, and chutzpah. You will be inspired.

We also have a very funny post-credits surprise that will crack you up. You don’t want to miss it!

This show is co-produced by Dan Rollins of LiveWire Films. Dan was also the “star” and brainchild behind the bit at the end.

  1. This whole series gave me the idea for Pressure Points. The raw, uncensored conversation that happens between two people in crisis or disagreement is not easy to write, let alone improvise. Ted is awesome!
