Just God and Real...Live... in Film Festival Heaven!

We are proud to announce that our short documentary Real...Live..., an account of the 2015 Madison World Naked Bike Ride has been selected by both the Green Bay Film Festival and Epp Films Indie Theater.  In addition, Epp Films Indie Theater has also selected Just God.  We will announce exact screening times as soon as we have them.

We are especially grateful to Cyndee Sweetland and all the good people who run the Green Bay Film Festival.  Last year they hosted Just God's world premiere and ran a tremendous festival, filled with a variety of local and international films.  We had a great time there, and we are looking forward to returning in March.

The short documentary Real... Live... to premiere at the High Noon Saloon August 2nd

We are proud to announce that our latest short film, a documentary entitled Real... Live... will be shown at the High Noon Saloon on August 2nd, 2015 as part of the premiere of Freud by Living Storm Productions.

Real... Live... documents Madison's 2015 World Naked Bike Ride, where over one hundred participants took off most or all of their clothes and rode their bicycles through downtown Madison, Wisconsin.  The World Naked Bike Ride is an annual event held in cities throughout the world as a protest of our modern society's over reliance on fossil fuels, as a promotion of clean transportation, and as a celebration of the essential goodness of the human body.  Real... Live... captures the delighted reaction of onlookers at Madison's Farmer's Market and on the streets of Madison, and represents the humor and joy that the World Naked Bike Ride represents.

Please note that this film contains full frontal nudity.  Viewer discretion is advised ... but we think you will love it!

We had an awesome time at the Green Bay Film Festival last weekend.  Just God had its premiere along with a group of outstanding films.  As director of Just God, it felt great to be part of such a group of artists.  As I sit at my desk in Madison, I happen to have cards from two of them, so I'll post their links, but all of the films were great.  The quality of films at these festivals is really getting better ... I have to bring my A game every time!

Pity was a dark and eerie atmospheric film about a very bad breakup.  Writer/director John Pata is a talented filmmaker and committed to Wisconsin films!  I confess I did not get a chance to see God Forgive Us, but I met the filmmakers and believe they are destined for great success in the industry.

I enjoyed especially the chance to sit with them and other filmmakers on two discussion panels, one about screenwriting, the other about film production.  We shared our experiences and knowledge with a large group of individuals eager to learn how to make their own films.

Another highly recommended feature film is Wildlike, a gorgeous and moving story about a girl escaping an abusive home, shot in the Alaskan frontier.  A story that unfolds slowly and beautifully, excellent acting and editing, with spare dialogue and captivating images.  Ella Purnell gives a nuanced and absorbing performance.  See it!

But the best part was having my wife and friends and collaborators join me for the Just God screening.  Robert Lughai, Kelly Lajter, Colin Cameron, Jeff Blankenship and of course the lovely Jill Wootton.  We shared movies and dinner and plenty of good laughs!  It was the perfect culmination to all the hard work we all put in to make Just God happen.  Thank you all!
