#98 Kahmeela Adams
Ever have a friend who is relentless about you meeting a person they know. You hear, “Oh! You don’t know her/him? You have to! You two are so much alike!” You then dismiss said friend, because you have heard it before, and it really doesn’t turn out to be true. Sometimes… it does, enter Kahmeela Adams.
Kahmeela and I met for coffee after a friend’s urging, and the time flew. We share a lot of the same loves including attending Comic Cons, and (I say proudly), are a bit quirky, funny, and odd. I like that about us.
Much like myself, Kahmeela is a busy woman who likes to have her hands in a lot of fun activities outside of work. She has not one, but four podcasts in Pittsburgh! They all fall under her companyRugged Angel Productions, and include Rugged Angel Podcast, Down To Watch, Psych Babble, and ReVisiting Sunnydale, a favorite of mine where her and her long time friend talk about their love of Buffy The Vampire Slayer. Kahmeela has also for the past 9 years produced the 48 Hour Film Project in Pittsburgh. No easy undertaking.
The 48 Hour Film Project is something I really wanted to chat with her about. I have always heard of the project, but never really delved into the details with anyone before. It seemed like something that just passed on my radar, but never really landed. I chat with Kahmeela about what all goes into producing the event, even though this will be her last year in that role.
What do you need to get started? Do you need to have your own crew or do they choose at random? Can I film on my phone? What prompts do you get, if any to work with? How long do you have to create it? Will it ever be shown in a theater to anyone? We answer all of these questions, and more… much more.
Being podcasters, we get into talking about podcasting, and what new folks looking to start one themselves can expect to find once you decided to jump in. It isn’t as easy as it seems. ;P Boardgames, Pittsburgh talk, our love of Storm Large and more come up in this awesome conversation.
