"Vivienne Again" Wins Its First Award!


This past weekend "Vivienne Again" won a Kickstarter Jury Award at the 2012 Flyway Film Festival! It was an extraordinary  weekend of great films, events and people, all in beautiful Pepin, WI. We were thrilled to win this award and sincerely thank everyone who voted for our film. The award itself is as unique as this festival -- it's an 8"x8" "axe" head made from gray granite. I'm holding it in the photo above and it's heavy as hell. Which, as it turns out, is exactly how I like my awards. Thanks, Flyway!

"Vivienne Again" Making Its West Coast Premiere at HollyShorts!

I'm Hollywood-bound! Nope, this New Yorker isn't moving, but it is time for me to make the filmmakers' pilgrimage to Los Angeles. And this isn't just any trip or any screening, this will be my first time in LA... ever.

I was one of those kids who dreamed of being in film since I was a little girl, so thoughts of landing in LAX, five dollars in my pocket, and sleeping on the sofas of friends until I got on my feet wasn't ever too far from my mind.  I never thought it would take me this long to set foot on Hollywood soil.

But as they say, the best laid plans...

The obstacles life threw my way that keep me from pursuing a career in film until just these last few years are mostly in the rearview now. This is my chance and I'm taking it with all I've got.  The upside is, for my first trip to LA, I now have more than five dollars, I'll be staying in a nice hotel, and the day I land, I go straight away to screening my first film. Not bad for a kid from the old rough-and-tumble neighborhood of Hell's Kitchen, NYC.

Here are the details of our screening:

AUGUST 14, 2012 at 9:00PM
GRAUMAN'S CHINESE THEATER, CHINESE 6
6925 HOLLYWOOD BOULEVARD
HOLLYWOOD, CA 90028

Tickets can be purchased through Eventbrite and be sure to buy tix for the 8/14 9pm Short Film Program: Action.

LA friends, I hope to see you there!

"Vivienne Again" is Going to Dragon*Con!

We're all excited about the latest news on "Vivienne Again." The film was just accepted into the Dragon*Con Film Festival and will be screening at the con in Atlanta, GA, over Labor Day weekend. The film festival schedule will be published soon, so please "Like" our film's Facebook page for the latest news on screenings and events.

I'll be attending Dragon*Con with our film's Executive Producer (who is also my hubby!) Matt Garland and we couldn't be more amped for four-days of geeky con goodness. This will definitely be an event where my updates will come mostly in picture-form because, trust me, that will be the best way to share this wild event with you all.

In addition to this great festival news, we just completed the trailer for the film. Thanks so much to Editor Justin Lachance and post-sound house Gift of Sound for crafting this 30-second goodie of a trailer for us. Check it out and let me know what you think in the Comments below!
