Writer/Director Steph Greegor was featured in Columbus Underground January 2016 for the hockey film, “Olsky.”

The article was written by Hope Madden.

“I want to be one of the people who’s helping Columbus establish itself as a great place to make films.”

So says local filmmaker Steph Greegor, one of the many who believe in making movies in Columbus. She credits the skills and knowledge she collected at her two previous gigs for giving her the tools to write and direct her short film, Olsky, a character study concerning a psychologically damaged hockey player.

Greegor’s five years with The Other Paper – particularly her coverage of the Blue Jackets beat – obviously informed the story, but she says subsequent work at Nationwide allowed her to hone her abilities in project management, which she needed as director.”

“Olsky” lead actor Aaron Massey was featured in SB Nation December 2016 for the hockey film, “Olsky.”

The article was written by Matt Wagner.

“After seeing OLSKY and getting a chance to talk to writer and director Steph Greegor, I was excited to have a chance to ask a few questions to Aaron Massey, the film’s main actor. An Ohio native, he has appeared in several films and TV shows, but had several challenges in taking on the role of Mike Olsky.

————————————————–

So the obvious first question – how intimidating was it to have to not only bulk up for the role, but also learn how to play hockey at the same time?

I didn’t really see it as intimidation, but more so of a challenge. I like to face things head on, and simply put my head down and do whatever needs to be done to fulfill the task at hand, and in this case it was becoming Mike Olsky. We did not have the benefit of months and months of prep or training. I had to utilize the time I had which was just a few weeks to simply learn how to skate. I had never been on the ice before. I come from an athletic background having played college baseball, and football and basketball through high school so I was up for the challenge.”

The article was written by Matt Wagner.

“OLSKY opens with a sharp contrast – the sight of the titular character pulling on his pads and checking his skates, alone in a darkened locker room, while we hear a radio host open the phone lines to allow fans to blast him with both barrels for what he calls “a spectacular fall from grace.”

From that moment, we know this is someone who is at a low point, and it’s not clear to him (or the audience) how – or if – he can find his way back out.”

Greegor, a former reporter for the Times Recorder, grew up near Cambridge and attended John Glenn High School, which she graduated from in 1998. For all her life, she said, of all the interests and jobs she’s had, stories and words have remained constant.

“I feel like everything in my life has prepared me for this moment,” Greegor said.”
