I was a featured “young artist” in the Yellow Springs News’ 2009-2010 “Guide to Yellow Springs”. The article, written by Hallie Cranos, talks a lot about Love Conquers All. Excerpts (I’ll post the whole thing on my web site soon:
[Q]uery has just finished her first film, a short film called “Love Conquers All.” Starring Lee Johnson and Olivia Byrnes, the film chronicles a young man’s (Johnson) increasingly obsessive interest in a young woman. Query adapted the screenplay from a short story by the Irish author Mike McCormack, entitled “Amor Vincit Omnia,” which means “love conquers all” in Latin. In addition to directing and writing the screenplay, Query also produced and edited it herself….
The idea for her film emerged in April when during a conversation with Johnson they realized they wanted to make a video together before he moved away in August.
“Suddenly I had a camera and a lead actor — that’s like 50 percent,” she said. “Steve Bognar lent me sound equipment — another 25 percent. It all just fell into place.”…
The experience of making the film was very positive, she said.
“The cast and crew were so on board,” she said. “They were always willing to follow me, even if they didn’t know where I was going and I didn’t know either.”
