|Crew: ||Kim Sheridan
A small film crew looks up at the sky and contemplates what's really going on with our environment. This film was created as part of the 2010 International Documentary Challenge, in which a short non-fiction film had to be written, filmed, and produced within a five-day period. First-time documentary filmmaker Kim Sheridan accepted this challenge, but took it one step further. She chose to do it all with a crew of only two: herself and her husband. Kim wrote, directed, produced, co-edited, co-filmed, narrated, and even created the musical score for 'What's Up?' It is her intention that the film will encourage viewers to open their eyes and their minds, and to take action to make a positive difference in the world around us.
As a young child, Kim Sheridan spent much of her free time engaged in one form of entertainment or another. She often wrote, produced, and performed plays, puppet shows, musical performances, and other productions for her family, friends, and neighbors. She was also an active cast and crew member of school plays and church productions; and she even earned a special Girlscout badge by adapting a play called "The Miracle Worker" (about the life of Helen Keller) for a crew of three, in which she played the leading role as Annie Sullivan, Helen Keller's teacher. In college, Kim dabbled in various performing arts courses; and she tried to enroll in a Film Production program but was daunted by a six-year waiting list. Her life then went off in other directions: She earned a Naturopathic degree in holistic health, co-founded a nutritional supplement company, and then became an award-winning author. But her filmmaking dreams never died, so she took production courses in her spare time, founded EnLighthouse Entertainment, and finally just went ahead and made her first short film - so "Good versus Evil" was born!
