GREAT NEWS!!! After the Headlines is an official selection of the 2010 Action on Film AOF International Film Festival. This film festival is listed as one of the top '25 Film Festivals Worth Their Fees' by Movie Maker Magazine. I'm really excited to be a part of the film festival for a second year. Last year, I attended AOF because After the Headlines was nominated for "Best Dramatic Scene." If you're a regular follower of In the Mix, you already know that I won. One year later, the film is being shown. I call that progress.
Times are still very financially tough for most Americans and that has to be taken into consideration when I think about my cast, crew, fans, and supporters. I work with people who love to make film, but the reality of independent cinema is that it doesn't pay. Instead it costs. I'm a screenwriter and filmmaker because I'm passionate about the process and really enjoy doing it, whether it pays or not. Of course I still want to make a living at it. Getting into festivals costs me, but it also provides me with an opportunity to get my film in front of audiences and network with professional in the film industry. That's priceless.
I want to thank all of you who have supported me this far. I really appreciate it. It makes a big differenc in my grassroots efforts as a screenwriter and filmmaker. Make sure you check out the AOF film festival website at http://www.aoffest.com/. You can check out last year's winners, film trailers, interviews, and see my writing scene performed by actors. I had to plug it. Thanks for reading.
