Film Fest Fashion:: Men's Edition

Last night brought my suggestion for a lovely ladies' ensemble to sport at the Arkansas Times Awards Gala for the Little Rock Film Festival. However, it was brought to my attention that I had left out the guys who, let's be honest, tend to need help more than the ladies do. If you ask me, these situations call for only one man -- Ted Baker. Remember I said this gala is to celebrate a bunch of cool creatives so it's the perfect time to step outside of one's comfort zone. And nobody does just-outside-your-comfort-zone-yet-undoubtedly-cool like Ted Baker.

Film Fest Fashion Part 3

No film festival is complete without an awards ceremony of some sorts. For the Little Rock Film Festival, it's the Arkansas Times Awards Gala at the Clinton Presidential Library. If the word "gala" fills your head with images of lades in fascinators and men in seersucker, this is not that type of party. This one is put together to celebrate a bunch of cool creatives, so you've gotta dress to keep up. Here's what I'd wear {to borrow a phrase from the Man Repeller} "if the Internet were my closet."

A short film based off a conversation overheard being yelled at a social worker, while one of the directors sat in the welfare office waiting his turn.
Animeditation dir. Jonathon Rosen
A short, hand-drawn visualization of the mental process of meditation. Wacky and amusing, yet at times enveloping and intense, the animation illustrates a surge of thought-images, and their inevitable retreat back to a pure and simple circle, a buzzing mantra. The swelling sound effects recorded on cassette and created only by a voice interact with the ever-morphing imagery in a way that guides the viewer through a bizarre experience; it is like watching an extracted slice of the mind displayed onscreen.
The Assignment dir. Scott Brignac
Brian Crane is a boring kid who is failing his literature class, but due to an eccentric teacher he is pushed to overcome his awkwardness and live a better story.
Beneath the White City Lights dir. Christopher Kai Olsen
This documentary follows the creation and development of the critically acclaimed 2011 story ballet “THE WHITE CITY: THE COLUMBIAN EXPOSITION” which brings the infamous Chicago World’s Fair OF 1893 to life through dance, in a story filled with passion, ingenuity, intrigue, and murder.  Its cast of historic characters includes famed architect John Root, ill-fated Chicago                mayor Carter Harrison, Sr. and America’s first serial killer Dr. H.H. Holmes, who preyed upon young women amidst the chaos of the Fair.  An insider's view of the creative process, featuring intimate rehearsal footage, breathtaking performance video and candid interviews with renowned co-creators Ann Reinking and Melissa Thodos, as well as the many talented dancers who helped bring this story to life.
Bunker 731 dir. Jacob Scarpaci
Trapped in a bomb shelter, a married couple struggle with their only remaining option for survival.
Busted Walk dir. Steven Tanenbaum
Busted Walk follows a father and his teenage son as they walk to work on a winter morning in 1974. It is based on the writer/directors experience growing up with ankylosing spondalitis, a severe form of arthritis and what happened before his father revealed he had only months to live.
The Carnival is on Fire dir. H.R. McDonald
A girl ponders her loss of innocence while she is stalked by a lusting boy.

He comes to realize that it is no use complaining and shouting, the two strangers won't leave...
The God Phone dir. D. C. Marcial
A down-and-out infomercial pitchman accidentally discovers the Ultimate As-Seen-on-TV device.

HWY dir. Michael Evanet

Home to "Real stars, ex-stars, has-beens, wannabes, never-wases, never-will-bes, and hangers-on," Bobby's Idle Hour is the last bar on Nashville famed Music Row -- the center of the music industry. The small, dive bar represents a dying breed of American songwriters.

Tchoupitoulas, Directed by Bill and Turner Ross

Tchoupitoulas is a story of the New Orleans night. Abstractly aural and visual, it is a sensory document of one night in the many lives of a thriving nocturnal populace. Three young boys act as our wide-eyed conduits to a parade of entertainers and revelers as they dance through the lamp lit streets and doorways of the Crescent City.

If you've been here {heh} before, you may have noticed that down there on the right there's a new black and white image that says "StrangerS" on it.

We're really excited to finally be at a point at which we can tell you about it! Strangers is a really exciting project that Justin and our friend Warren McCullough are working to create. It's a short film that's set to be shot in Arkansas this summer, and has already gotten tons of buzz. Why would an unfilmed film get buzz? Because these two working together = a powerhouse production team. Warren is an incredible SAG actor and, more recently, a very successful director as well. Justin has a knack for creating compelling stories and a talent for knowing how to get these things done.

So in just two people they've got their writer, director, lead actor and producer. That's a lot of work for two people! But they're not doing it alone. Bryan Stafford is truly one of the best cinematographers around and is signed on as Director of Photography. Cody Riggan is a one-stop-shop for film production, from shooting to editing to sound and everything in between. He great at not just getting things done, but getting them done correctly. Brent Bailey has offered his accomplished skills and professional equipment as key grip and gaffer.

one of the film's locations

 A big milestone in the production was the launch of their indiegogo campaign. If you're not familiar with indiegogo.com, it's a great (safe, legit) website that allows people to contribute to projects. Justin and Warren were thrilled to find they had received two contributions within an hour of the campaign going live  (all these talented people and professional equipment don't come for free after all!)!

So you can probably see why we were so excited that we had to put up a little hint in the right side toolbar a few weeks early! We would love to have you support the project by checking out the Strangers campaign online and sharing it with your friends and family! It's a great way to support the art of independent film making!

Awesome Local Music

This past Friday members of Velvet Kente and Amasa Hines (both bands have the same lead singer, Joshua) held an awesome concert at a local establishment. The night was called "Velvet Kente's Soul Funk Dance Party" and was a happening night by all accounts. Our friend Cody Riggan shot the night of funk/soul covers for the band and here are some of his videos:

At one point in the night over 40 people were standing outside just hoping to get a chance to see one of the best live shows in recent memory that Little Rock has had to offer. If you're ever in town and either of those two bands are playing please be sure to try to catch them live, you really won't regret it. It should be noted that these two bands normally play original music and this was just a special funk/soul cover night.

Film Fest Fashion

Over the past few weeks, everywhere I turn I'm seeing articles, blog posts, tweets and statuses about music festivals {thanks for rubbing it in, Internet!}. While we didn't get the chance to visit any this year, we will, of course, be attending the Little Rock Film Festival at the end of this month.One of the things film festivals have over music festivals is that they're mostly held inside. When your festival takes place in the hot, Southern summer, inside can be a very good thing. So today starts a mini series of ensembles appropriate for various film festival events, starting with film screenings. Because you never know if it's going to be chilly in the theater, it's best to dress in comfy layers!
