It’s debate night, so I thought I’d publicly reveal the content of some of my emails and provide a Moonshot update. No grotesquely sexist locker room banter here!
1. We have a premiere!
Moonshot has been selected to the 17th season of the Flickers’ Rhode Island International Film Festival’s Vortex. It will screen in Providence on October 22. Click here for the schedule.
Ahead of our premiere, we are finalists for two major awards…
- CINE Golden Eagle
- American Society of Cinematographers (ASC) Vilmos Zsigmond Student Heritage Award
Wes Hunt (DP) and I will travel to Los Angeles for the ASC event October 15, where we will presumably do other LA-type things like drink organic smoothies and do inverted yoga in a shipping container filled with black sand.
We have also won two competition awards…
- Los Angeles CineFest: Best Film, August
- LA Shorts Awards: Best Editing
We’re extremely grateful for this recognition!
3. New Poster
For marketing purposes, we’ve added a second poster to our arsenal, with the help of graphic artist Ginny Iames…
4. Feedback on the film
As a finalist for the CINE Golden Eagle, we received comments from a panel of judges, one of which I’ll share here:
It is hard to count the strengths of this film. It is a delightful romp into a dystopian future, filled with cranky fun. Good use of resources, good photography, good acting. The filmmaker has a deft touch and of the films I have reviewed so far, this has been my favorite. It reminded me of a superb episode of the Twilight Zone without the somberness.
