Festivus

How can one family be so beautiful and talented. I just came across Martha Wainwright, Rufus' little sister. Her music is amazing from what I've heard so far. She's as pretty as her brother too. Check it out at http://www.marthawainwright.com/ She'll be playing at SXSW so I'll definitely be checking her out there. I'm looking forward to seeing Aesop Rock and Elvis Costello. I'm sure there's a lot more but the list is maddeningly long.

The full film schedule for SXSW is up along with trailers. DEADROOM showtimes are Friday 3/11/05 10pm, Tuesday 3/15/05 7:45pm, and Thursday 3/17/05 at noon. Come watch it goddamn. You'll be doing yourself a favor.

Our schedule for the Cleveland Film Festival is up. Unfortunately the dates are set precisely at a time where none of will be able to make it out. Tis a shame. I was looking forward to visiting even if it was for one short night. They gave us a great review for the program guide where they had this to say: "The film relies heavily on the writing and directing, and these folks deliver." Read the full review and get our screening times here. Hopefully lots of people will show up and enjoy.

The Texas Film Festival is going to be really cool. It's a small festival but they are truly dedicated to independent film and bringing it to a part of Texas (Brazos Valley) that doesn't ever get exposed to this sort of content. Plus they're paying for all of our expenses. There is no better thing a film fest can do for an Independent filmmaker than pay expenses. Everybody knows we're always broke. PLUS, they are giving David and I free reign over a workshop. We can talk about any film related topic we want. Of course being the film snobs that we are we've decided to discuss Artistic Integrity in Independent Film: Using Independent film as a way to make art instead of a cheap way to get into Hollywood. Also, we're the closing night film for the festival, so that should be really cool. We're playing Saturday 4/02/05 at 5pm. Anybody know where I can find some good Vegan food in the Bryan/College Station area?

EFilmCritic.com did a pre-SXSW interview with us. You can read it online at http://www.efilmcritic.com/feature.php?feature=1366

The nice folks at Texas Filmmakers are having a special test screening of DEADROOM (on MySpace at http://profiles.myspace.com/users/14812517.) Please come and check it out. They'll be showing the film and doing an extensive Q&A afterwards. It should be fun.

Where: Cool Beans, 1210 W. Hickory St., Denton TX.
When: Wednesday 03-02-05, 8:00pm


Congrats to Jeff Griffin who gives an outstanding performance in Contemporary Theater of Dallas' Far East. He plays the lead role Sparky. The play got a great write up in Dallas Morning News where they had this to say "Mr. Griffin, in his area debut, is particularly impressive – convincingly military, gung ho in a slightly na├»ve way, but smart as a tack. He makes a better Sparky than the actor who played him in New York."

Hey, your movie's gonna be showing right next to my Dad's store Treasure Aisles in Denton. If you pop in there and see a guy with a really long red ponytail, tell Kennedy you know his son, Bryan.

Good luck with the screenings. See you in Austin soon!
