Hello everybody, what’s up? You’re listening to I Was Just Wondering With Tom Salmon! The podcast that dives into music, film and games and everything else in between.
My guest on this week’s episode is Jimmy Olsson who directed, produced and wrote his latest short film Alive (2020) starring Madeleine Martin and Eva Johansson. The film tells the story of Victoria, a disabled woman yearning for intimacy and her over protective care assistant Ida, who reluctantly sets up a Tinder profile for Victoria with troubling results.
We jumped into Jimmy’s experience writing Alive’s screenplay in under ninety minutes in an airport lounge, his thoughts and feelings on disability and online dating and the secret to shooting mundane yet a visually inviting locations.
