The Cucaranchula: A Short Film on Creative Rejection

Lake Effect intern Nathan Royster interviews filmmaker Kate Balsley.

Kate Balsley’s short film – being screened at the Milwaukee Film Festival – draws upon personal experience on the topic of creative rejection. Her film is called The Cucaranchula.

When a spider crawls out of the sink one night during a business date, things go from bad to worse to better. The film is peppered with animation and quirky characters.

Kate Balsley stopped by the Lake Effect studio recently to speak with Nathan Royster and share the story of the film.

The Cucaranchula will be screened on Wednesday and Sunday at the Milwaukee Film Festival.
