It's been a while, so I'm going to again regale you with stories of our most current wins and fails! Yes, let's catch up!
First of all, let's talk about our latest film The Marquee Lights!
If you haven't read about this film yet, check its very own website here! (You should definitely check out that website....and "Like" it.....and share it with your friends.....)
The Marquee Lights had its premiere screening at The Action on Film International Film Festival in Los Angeles, California. It was nominated for Best Dramatic Short, and we got to go to a super fancy red carpet event (where we were groped by the bad guy from Kindergarten Cop). We didn't win, but we met some awesome people, and stole the seating number from the table at the end of the night.
And we got one of THESE!!
Since we have infamously bad luck (just kind of in life generally) we managed to have two screenings for TML on the same day. We screened at the Multicultural Arts Center in Merced California (where it was filmed), and at the Vina de Oro Fresno International Film Festival.
|Jason Ryder, Ashley Franklin, Julie, and Heather. Film makers!|
We didn't make it to the Vina de Oro screening, but we got one of THESE!!
We also got some write ups in Downtown Life Magazine, and The Merced Sunstar advertising our film. (We're attention whores now, so we expect you to share our blog with all of your friends)
In non - TML related news we made a faux movie trailer called It's Alive. We worked with a business (Kirby Manufacturing), a medical mannequin (the SimMan), and made a movie trailer for a Hospital (Mercy Hospital), to raise money to buy more medical mannequins (SimMans). Okay....are you with me? Lets just say we filmed a Frankenstein style trailer, in a factory, and it was a blast!!
Wanna know what? Just go ahead and watch the trailer!
It's Alive was shown at the Night of 1,000 Stars Gala where it won the award for Best Trailer!
More good luck for us! We've never won anything, and in our slightly inebriated states (free bar, nice bartenders) we could not have been more ecstatic! And then we stole the seating number from the table at the end of the night. And we got one of THESE!!
|That's right we got a trophy!! Don't hate.|
We'll take it!!
