The Outlaw Son in Sarasota

outlawson_hug.jpgThe Outlaw Son will be screening for the first time tomorrow afternoon, in the Vintage & Vanguard Shorts Program at the Sarasota Film Festival. I love the synopsis in the festival program:

A quiet, experimental drama that traces an underlying breach in a couple’s communication.

I love it because it's an interpretation that I'd never have thought of myself, but that's entirely applicable to the film all the same.

The really outstanding animated shorts program in which Some Analog Lines has been included will be screening almost immediately afterward, at 2pm. I won't be at either screening, since I don't get into Sarasota until Tuesday, but if anyone happens to attend, I'd love to hear how they go; in particular, how The Outlaw Son plays. That's my baby. All grown up. I just hope it's loud enough.

Actually, Frank, I'm back - and by back, I mean back in Texas. Although that'll only last for the next day or two. I'll give you a call the week after next, when I'm back again. I can't wait to see the new shorts, and also what must by now be the total-masterpiece that is Little Boy (given that the rough cut was a near masterpiece all by itself).

awww, shucks...:) thanks, david...appreciate the kind words....yeah, would love to see what you think...the most recent shorts were shot completely improvised, with only an outline for guidance, so i have GDMF and OUTLAW SON for serving as inspirational models for these cinematic ventures...:)...
just call me whenever...sounds good!

Yeah, I really regret not checking the DigiBeta dubs before I shipped them out. Oh well, I'll find out for sure soon...the second screening is at nine-ish tomorrow night, and I'll be there, sweating it out...
