We had the good fortune of connecting with Addie Doyle and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Addie, what’s one piece of conventional advice that you disagree with?
That being a filmmaker requires expensive training. You just have to take that first imperfect leap and make sure you are organized. Be willing to build your own community and learn by doing. Create your own stories and invest in yourself.
Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
Right now, I’m working on two short films and two music videos with my creative partner, Lee Hurst, and they’re all in post-production. Lee and I love making the same kind of deadpan, slapstick dark comedy and these next projects are exactly that. We are constantly writing and thinking about the next film shoot. And we’ve been lucky to collaborate with other artists whose work we love this past year. Look out for High Horse and fin. coming in 2022.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Post-pandemic, I’m excited to go back to the EP & LP rooftop for their spicy passionfruit margarita. The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I’d love to thank and also shout out Late Boomers Club. They are a music-producing duo based here in Los Angeles. Their music is incredible, and I’m not just saying that because one of them is my brother. Evie & Scoops have really carved a path for themselves after moving to LA during a pandemic and they just redid their studio. Their studio was one of the only creative spaces that I could go to during lockdown. Watching them work really inspired me and kept me in good spirits. If you’re a musical artist looking for the most supportive, fun and genre-diverse producers to support your vision, definitely check them out on Spotify and social media @lateboomersclub.
