So “I’m taking the bus” is finally here on my site, we made a short festival run and garnered two awards (see below) now we can run it here, enjoy!
I just completed a “Commercial Spec Spot” that I Wrote and Directed, which is currently being considered for several film festivals, it has been accepted into two so far, the Austin Comedy Short Film Festival in Austin, Tx, and the The IndieFEST Film Awards in La Jolla, CA. I am very excited to see how many festivals it gets accepted into and how it does at the ones it winds up in. This project owes its completion to a special bunch of people with whom I have the pleasure of working with. We form the “Film Club” to collective dream up, create, write, produce, and shoot short projects. This is an incubator in which people who may or ay not have live action production experience, but thats the whole point, to give an outlet for those that need it and provide a place for those who wish to try. All of our members do in fact have production experience but much of that is post production and VFX experience. Only a small number have actual on set live action experience outside of the post world, this then provides an outlet for that. It has the capacity to enrich and expand their experience and let them grow as artists. We are self funded, and self motivated. This is our first production, we have recently shot our second production, and are underway for our third production. Unfortunately I cannot as yet publish the finished piece until the festival circuit is done, so if you want to see it along with a bunch of other good work go to the festivals mentioned above, and support this kind of production so we can continue to bring you great media. I can however show you some stills from our production. Credits below the image gallery.
Update – The spot has been accepted into the Hollywood International Moving Pictures Film Festival as well, so thats three so far! Whoop !
Up-Update – Our little spec spot was entered into and accepted into 5 festivals total, so far we have won awards in two of these festivals,
The IndieFEST Film Awards we won an “Award of Merit” and at the Hollywood International Moving Pictures Film Festival we won an “Award of Recognition”
we are still waiting to hear about the last festival on Nov. 11
