Q&A with director, Mark Steven Shepherd, after the screening.
Red Carpet Burn was shot over a 10 year period, in 6 countries, by Santa Fe filmmaker, Mark Steven Shepherd.It chronicles the history of the red carpet from 450 BC, when it was reserved exclusively for royalty, to its modern incarnation as a promenade for the public worship of glamorous stars. It is a ‘labor of love.’
The film examines the seemingly universal fascination with “celebrity” that transcends age, gender, and cultures around the world. Mark’s humorous tongue in cheek approach to filming both the upper echelon and lower echelon obsession with celebrity, blends live footage, animation, graphics, and paparazzi action figures, into a comic tour de force which not only explores the commodity of celebrity, but also manages to achieve “ flying by the seat of the pants” instant creation of celebrity with unanticipated consequences.
