And that’s not all the good news for today!! We are ALSO beyond honored to announce that our film THREE QUARTERS will be a part of CineScream for a Cure! Sunday, October 2nd at Marketplace Cinemas Winston Salem and ALL proceeds will go to benefit the cancer treatment of NC Film friend Shannon Bekoe!

When we first made this film, THIS is exactly the type of thing we wanted to help support, and how fitting that our dearly-departed friend Adam York’s story could help benefit someone else going through the exact same fight with cancer that he did. While all of our dozens and dozens of festival selections have been special, this one is just a little bit more so! We hope to see you all there for a great lineup of films and the silent auction to support such a great cause!

24/08/2021

We are saddened and heartbroken to report that our co-founder, technical director, and dear friend Adam York has passed away following a long battle with bone cancer.

We are absolutely devastated at the loss of our dear friend, and such a core part of our group, but we will continue onward, as were Adam's wishes, as well as dedicate our latest film Three Quarters to his memory, with proceeds from the film (including any prize money won on its festival run) given to Adam's family.

We would please ask that everyone please respect the privacy of Adam's family at this unimaginably difficult time, and give them, us, and everyone time to grieve and begin to heal. Thank you all so much for your continued support.

May he Rest in Peace, and May his Memory be a Blessing.

hey are you guys doing the film fest again this year??
Is there anywhere yet where folks can view "Closing Time"? asking for a friend...
I am pleased to announce that “Closing Time” is the recipient of “Best in Show” at Big Fandom Greenville 2017.

Thank you to everyone who has been a fan of our work, and we can’t wait to share more with you!
An update on "Closing Time"...The editing is in the very final stages, just a few small decisions to be made, m a y b e
a few pick-ups, we'll see...I think I can get around it. Next step is post... Do we have a dropbox setup for cast and crew to view what we have so far, just to get opinions/suggestions? Is that a stupid question? If so ,I can post this afternoon for viewing pleasure... Even compressed, it's still about 500mb (running time just under 18 min, without credits). ...
