Delta Tau Delta 09.18.18 -"Indie Film Director Tackles Social Issues in Feature Film" “My overall feeling towards the content I'm trying to make, the films I'm trying to create, is that we, even at the smallest level, have the ability to bring joy to other people through things that we're creating and the things that we're putting into the world.”

Creative Loafing 07.16.18 - "A Conversation with Jonothon Mitchell" "If teenagers who identify as queer can see someone like Rodney on the screen who’s not defined by a relationship, but rather the journey he takes to achieve his dreams, I think that’s going to be so inspiring to so many people — at least, I hope so."
Newsy 06.20.18 - "30 Minutes With.. Jonothon Mitchell" Full video interview coming soon!
Matthew's Place/Medium 04/10/18 - "Why I’m Making a Film About a Teenage Drag Queen" "At his core, Rodney is character who is stronger and braver than I am. He is fearless and stands his ground in the face of oppression. He is smart, quick-witted, and unapologetically queer. He exists to celebrate queer difference, not straight acceptance"
Instinct Magazine 03.27.18 - "Mayhem Miller is set to hit the silver screen with drag artist Desmond Napoles!" "I’ve recently grown to really love and admire drag culture and the strength and bravery drag queens have just by showcasing their talent night after night whether it’s on RuPaul’s Drag Race or on stage at any local clubs across the country. That admiration paired with my own nostalgia and resolve to create a film of importance ended up being integral in developing “Pageant Material.”"
