Twitterview with Teah Strandjord, @tstrandjord

Editor's note: If you tried to follow live, we apologize for Twitter, which was acting up. The complete transcript can be found below.  

Hello everyone! Welcome to the @MNMOmag Twitterview with @tstrandjord today. Let's get started #MNMOtv!

To start off with. Your movie, #ThreeWeeks premiered recently. How did that go and what feedback did you get?

Teah: @TCFilmFest screening was sold out! Went well and great feedback. @BenUtecht did a great job acting the lead role.

The @BenUtecht that played in the NFL? How did you connect with him, and how long did #ThreeWeeks take to develop?

Teah: I met @BenUtecht producing a spot for allina helmet safety. #threeweeks took 6 months going on 7 for under 20 min TRT!

Good to make connections like that! Where did the story of #threeweeks come from? Do you enjoy writing?

Teah: The story came from a collection of real-life experiences, news articles, and whimsy. Writing is tough but fun

Interesting. Share a little about yourself. Where you grew up and what kinds of things interested you as a child.

Teah: I grew up all over: WI, AZ, AK, MN. I was always in arts. Music, dance, theatre, and even art metals. Art was "home"

I see. So when did the "movie bug" hit you? How many movies have you appeared in and or produced?

Teah: I did my first nat'l commercial in 2001 & I was a goner. I loved being on set. The lights and the camera and the people.

I've appeared in & produced more TV and commercials than movies. So far, 5 movies, 3 of which are short films I produced.

Does MN have a good movie production "network" in your mind? What's your next project?

Teah: The MN film prod community is full of talented people who support each other, work hard, and make beautiful stuff. It's a really great place to be able to work with a lot of experienced pros to learn from.

I'm back in front of the camera for a while. In audition mode at the moment. Hope to have more exciting news soon! From there, looking for the next short to write and direct.

Thank you for your time. It's an honor to be interviewed by MNMOtv!!

To everyone following #MNMOtv, Twitter was acting up today, so please excuse the flow of Tweets or lack there of. Thanks for following. :)

Twitterviews generally last about an hour and consist of 10-15 questions. With only 140 characters per tweet, guests may use anywhere from one to five tweets to answer, and are encouraged to look up key Twitter handles before their interview, that are relevant to their lives, and then incorporate in their answers. Using the #MNMOtv hashtag in every question and response is important so that the public can easily follow the interview live.


In the “Search” or “# Discover” box of Twitter, type in #MNMOtv and then hit enter. A list of tweets using this hashtag will be displayed. Next to tweets there will be a highlighted tab that says “top” or “all.” Click “all.” This will then create a seamless stream that will display the Tweets in the correct order as they are posted.
