The Two Gay Geeks 🏳️🌈 have a chat with Scott J. Ramsey, writer and Director of the new film X. He shares how he got started in the film world and what is in store in the future. Have a listen and we hope you enjoy this as much as we did.
About Scott J. Ramsey
Scott J. Ramsey is the director, co-writer, and editor of X, the first feature length movie presented by The Foundation, which he wrote with frequent collaborator and X producer Hannah Katherine Jost.
He is also the vocalist and songwriting half of musical duo The Major Arcana, alongside X producer Kevin De Nicolo.
A proud alumnus of the Epsilon Chapter of Delta Kappa Alpha at San Francisco State University where he earned a BA in Fiction Filmmaking and befriended many of his X collaborators, Ramsey was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area and currently lives in Los Angeles.
X is the story of a female sexual predator whose shame is her Shakespearean downfall – a fresh and brazen take on an age-old tale.
While it doesn’t fit neatly into any genre, X could be described as a melodrama, comedy, thriller, and camp – a refreshing queer/feminist spin on the tragedy of the Hitchcockian voyeur – that’s got a razor-sharp edge and a rough-around-the-edges indie sensibility.
The semiotics of the letter ‘X’ is fascinating because as a symbol, it’s so loaded and yet also so vague. It could stand for anything – it’s a complete mystery, the missing part of an equation. But it also immediately evokes something forbidden or taboo, specifically in a sexual way like ‘rated X’.
Furthermore, it’s a Christogram – a shortening of Christ – which is significant because in this story, the main character Christian, is this symbol of liberation and freedom and openness for this community she has created. On top of all that, it also means ‘kiss’ because Christian’s visual trademark is her red lipstick, which she stamps on the invitations she sends to each of her guests.
San Francisco native, Scott J. Ramsey is the director, co-writer, and editor of X, the first feature-length movie presented by The Foundation, which he wrote with frequent collaborator and X producer Hannah Katherine Jost.
X has been successfully traveling the film festival circuit and earned a slew of awards including “Best First Time Filmmaker” at the 2019 Los Angeles Independent Film Festival
