Back from Vacation

Danny Daneau

Hello everyone. Thanks for checking in with film and your unwavering support. Over the past month, Erica and I have taken vacation away from the blog to better prepare for the next stage in the life of our film: exhibition and distribution. We’ve also been preparing for the launch of the webisodic video podcast series, Behind the Attic Door, which will premiere on the blog Wednesday, October 8th.

In other news, our lead actress Madison Davenport’s new movie, Humboldt County, opened yesterday in select theatres. Madison has been recieving some wonderful reviews. Here’s a sample:

“She’s a magnetic presence who remains cute and funny throughout, but avoids being overly precocious, a la Dakota Fanning.” – NICK MOORE The Daily Californian

“Charity (Madison Davenport), who despite being in grade school and constantly surrounded by marijuana smoke is sharp, bright and embodying the innocence of youth. 4.5/5.” Martin Malloy – SF Station

“Also watch for a great 11-year old girl performance by Madison Davenport, from whom we’ll be seeing more, I guarantee it.” – Christian Kallen- PressDemocrat.com


The Screening in Kanab part 1

Erica Harrell

Wow! Going back to Kanab and being able to enjoy the town and the parks that surround it was a completely different experience than shooting a film there last year.

The trip up for me was filled with excitement and a strange sense of calm. I was very excited that my dad was able to fly in from Florida to see the film as well as Danny’s and Bryce’s parents. I thank everyone who was able to make the journey to see something we all have been working so hard on for so long. In addition to my father I was also able to bring my beau Jeremiah who had never been to the West and he of course fell in love with the stunning red rocks of the region. Jeremiah had not seen any of the film prior to seeing it on the big screen in Kanab and I was really excited to share our work with him and the community of Kanab.

Walking through the streets of Kanab and seeing some of our old friends like Courtney and Cathy from the Parry Lodge and Jackie Hamblin-Rife was such a wonderful reminder of the hospitality that we received while making this film. (Of course eating at the Rewind Diner and the Rocking V Cafe were also exciting treats.)

Right now I am finishing up my last days on Entourage and I am headed back to Florida next week. Part two of this blog will feature pictures as soon as I find my camera and unpack!
