We had the good fortune of connecting with Torris Pelichet and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Torris, why did you pursue an artistic or creative career?
I’ve been creating since I was a child, back then I feared growing up and getting a job because my parents made work sound like slave labor. I loved story telling and often enjoyed when someone read books to me, but going to the movies was like my Disneyland, I understood writing and filmmaking where jobs and swore I do either or, or both when I became a man.

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.
I’m not really sure what sets me apart from other filmmakers because at the end of the day I think we all have very similar goals thought out from a bunch of different point of views, but what I can see in myself as a filmmaker is a true sense of Auteurism, and my approach to either my professional paid work or personal work steams from the point of view of an Auteur.

I’m most excited about my future opportunities the most, I’ve been hired as a director to shoot a documentary that I’m very passionate about, and I also have my own existential web series in preproduction at the moment.

Was it easy, heck no! Every day is a constant grind, and there are many challenges to overcome, but you must stay diligent, and trust in your instincts, build relationships, and stay consistent. Work hard, play hard is the motto!

I’ve learned many lessons along the way, but I think the two most important lessons I’ve learned is to trust myself and believe in the process. Learning from mistakes working hard through learning curves is key.

As a filmmaker I want people to know that I practice my art as an auteur and have tons of new American stories to tell. As far as my brand Pelichet Production I want the world to know that we are dedicated to producing unique, artistic, quality content, for all ages, races and genders to relate to. Our passion is driving by changing the world.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Oh easy, lower Manhattan to shop and eat, Williamsburg/Bushwick for drinks and rooftop parties. I know my answer is kind of vague, but New York to me is a city were you pick an area and just explore. Almost every corner is different and exploding with energy, the streets are electric. The city has a way of making you feel lucky you’re there in that moment.

But if I had to pick a few places, to eat I would choose Paloma’s (Ridgewood) best Mexican food I’ve ever had, to drink I would choose Boobie Trap located in Bushwick, and to hangout I would choose Washington square Park because of the art and culture happening in that one park alone.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
Yes I would like to dedicate this shoutout to my late grandmother Fern Lomax who always told me to keep going and never look back. My grandmother planted the idea of artist in my head as a very young boy and encouraged me towards creativity. Creating gave me focus and kept my mind evolving, if it wasn’t for art I would have no direction in life, she blessed me with direction. She stayed in my corner %100o of the way until her last breath, and because of that i still live by her rules and will keep her name alive until my last breath.
