Our producer (and my lifelong friend since 7th grade) Kevin K. Shah put together this recap video of our World Premiere weekend at the Phoenix Film Festival. We were so happy that a number of friends, backers, cast and crew were able to join us in Scottsdale AZ for an event I'll never forget.
And if you'd like to dig a little deeper, here is a highlight video of a panel on the business and craft of acting featuring our own John T. Woods of DOWN AND DANGEROUS, but also Blayne Weaver and Patrick Day of FAVOR. Big thanks to Paul Osborne for cutting this together.
WEST COAST PREMIERE IN LOS ANGELES
If you are in Los Angeles, or will be on Friday Night May 31 at 9:30pm, make sure to get your tickets online while they are still discounted. The price goes up another $2 on May 30th. TICKETS >>>
And don't miss Blayne and Patrick's riveting performances in FAVOR a week later at the same festival.
First, if you are able to join us in Los Angeles on Friday May 31st at 9:30pm, you can now buy tickets to our Dances With Films screening at the following link. We're expecting tickets to go fast so don't hesitate. We're super-excited to share this movie with everyone that can make it to the show. Most of the cast and crew will be there.
You can also help spread the word to friends on Facebook by inviting them to our event page here…
Finally, I wanted to take a moment to announce that Jamie Cobb has won an award for Best Editing from the Los Angeles Movie Awards. When we screened in Phoenix, the pacing and construction of the movie received quite a bit of praise and was always acknowledged by someone in the audience during each of our Q&As. We're all very proud of Jamie's contribution to this movie.
The movie also won an Award of Excellence, but for my money, acknowledging the lady who sculpted and shaped this movie from all the raw material we provided is the one that means the most.
Bien hecho, Jamie!
