Oscar Nominees Share Their Award Season Insights

from Shoot Online

Short takes
Director Joachim Back of Park Pictures is steeped in spotmaking experience. He decided to diversify into longer form for the first time with a short film, The New Tenants, produced by Park Pictures and M&M Productions. Last week The New Tenants earned an Oscar nomination for best live action short. Back collaborated on the film with his commercial industry colleagues, including DP Pawel Edelman and editor Russell Icke (of The Whitehouse).
A dark, twisted mistaken identity caper, the premise of The New Tenants, said Back, was an ideal outlet for the "fun madness I have inside." The cast includes Vincent D'Onofrio, Jamie Harrold, Kevin Corrigan and David Rakoff. It was Rakoff who adapted the original script by Danish writer Anders Jensen.
Since receiving the Academy Award nomination, Back said he's been "getting emails and calls from interesting places" (a.k.a., different companies and agents) as momentum is starting to build for perhaps other long-form directing opportunities. "I'd like to do both—ads and features. I'm in love with telling stories."
