Update #25

we SWEPT the Idyllwild Festival of Cinema!



We had an AMAZING time at the Idyllwild Festival of Cinema this past weekend!  This festival was the first to official accept and screen 'BUTTONS' to festival goers, and we had a blast playing our film alongside many other quality stories.

A surprise to our group was taking home the most awards of any other project (feature, featurette or short) competing at the festival!

'BUTTONS' took home four of our seven nominations, awards including:  Best Score, Feature or Featurette (Samuel J Smythe), Best Actor, Female, Feature or Featurette (Moniqua Plante), Best Screenplay, Featurette (Andrew Fisher) and Best Director, Featurette (Andrew Fisher)!  Attached is a photo of our team present at the festival.

We will be reporting about more festival acceptance news soon, so please be sure you've connected with us by clicking LIKE at:

Update #21

new WEBSITE including TRAILER for 'BUTTONS' !



We are excited to share with you the launch of our revised website for 'BUTTONS' !

Our new look on our website is aimed for promotion of the film!  Now that our project is complete (DVDs are burning in Texas as you read this) and now that we are submitting 'BUTTONS' to film festivals, it's time to get into publicity mode on behalf of the film.

On our site you'll see the trailer (home page), you can read about cast & crew, get news updates about wherever 'BUTTONS' will play and you can also reminisce along with us under MEDIA with our 5 behind-the-scenes videos.

We are SO excited for our Saturday, 9/24 - 7PM premiere in Turlock, CA!  For those of you who still have yet to RSVP, it's important you please do (we want to have a seat put out for you!).  Please email all attendee names to:  ALL GUESTS WELCOME.

We're aiming for a NOVEMBER premiere date in LA.  More info soon.
