I am honored to let you all know that A Man, Buried is kicking ass and taking names on the Festival Circuit thus far. It slayed the Northwest College Film Festival, and took home best short film at Seattle True Independent Film Festival. Last week it took home the Audience Choice Award from the Film Fringe Tour, Hollywood. HOLLYWOOD!
Next up it's Edinburgh, Scotland for the second stop on the Film Fringe tour, and in September it will be playing on the third and final stop of that tour in Philly.
We have submitted the film to dozens of Film Festivals and we'll be keeping everybody updated via the Facebook page so stay tuned, and please spread the link around to all of your friends. We are working to get sponsors to travel with the film and the larger our influence, the more likely the sponsors will be to help us out!
Finally, the date has been set, and all of our "Actors Anonymous" backers will be attending the Tony Doupe one day acting intensive July 22nd! The class roster is actually stacked with some amazing local talent and it is going to be a killer day for sure!
Thank you all for your continued support and don't forget to help us get the FB page rolling.
Today, Chris Taylor and I attended the Northwest College Film Festival at Shoreline Community College where over 30 films were shown. Many of you may not know, but Chris is a student at Art Institute Seattle. (One of the eligibility requirements for NWCFF is you must be a student film maker)
