Who are you and what’s your filmmaking background?
My name is Andrew Yancey. I was raised in Salem, Oregon and moved out to Bozeman, Montana for the film program. In the dorms I met my roommate Connor McCann who goes by the stage name TuCash. Together we partnered up and created our YouTube channel TuCashTV. After completing my freshman year at MSU and making it through the film gate, I decided film school was no longer benefiting me and dropped out to pursue my dreams of becoming a filmmaker in all aspects of the name.
What are you working on right now?
It’s quickly becoming my busiest year yet. I am music video directing and editing once a week as well as producing a TV show for our channel, but my biggest project that I’ve been working on since November is my short film Courageous starring Jack Denham and Connor McCann.
What are you promoting?
What do you want the audience to take away from your films?
Ultimately a broader view on the world and further spread the message of what I believe truly matters in the world which comes down to love and happiness.
What are your wildest dreams for your filmmaking career?
Being able to fund any project that I get my hands on and make enough money off of it to fund the next project. I don’t ever want to stop creating and storytelling, it’s what fuels my life and it’s a passion I’ve had in me from day one.
What is something bizarre about you?
There are several ways I can answer this, but almost all of them are inappropriate.
What currently inspires you?
People who have ambition and take chances.
